Ruby on Rails is great! - I can code while smashed!

Ruby on Rails is great! - It’s so easy … I can code while smashed and
still get work done!

I work from home. I code hard and get a lot done. Ruby on Rails makes my
productivity so much higher than I can actually be drunk … and still
impress my boss!

It’s great.

Do you have experiences like this? Do you code better while unable to
walk the line? Does the loosening affect free your thinking … and
does Ruby on Rails make it so easy you can be smashed and meet a
deadline?

Tell me…

oh shit … it’s only 5:30pm!


#3

Hey, What’s your number? I want to hire you for my next project.


#4

Maybe it’s a good idea, though, to not write e-mails while smashed.

Do you have experiences like this?

I do actually, and it feels funny (funny-strange, not funny-ahah)

I’ve been a regular 7/8-hour-sleep kind of guy my whole life, except for
the long nights of coding that would leave me exhausted the day after,
but since I started this Rails project 2 weeks ago, I’m on my 2nd 3-hour
night in a row, and it happened twice in 2 weeks. And when I force
myself to leave my desk, my body is tired but my brain is so awake I
take my PowerBook in my bed to read this list and the dozens of Rails
related blogs I track for another 30-45 minutes. Three hours later, I
get up.

I’m under no stress, except for the hard-to-repress “I’ll just add one
more feature, it’s so easy with Rails” urge.

This morning, I seriously considered going to my G.P., to see if nothing
is wrong with me. Your message made me feel better, less alone. I don’t
need to see my doctor, I need to write more code.
Sorry but I must leave you now: there is one more feature I could code
before going eating…
