Well, wigging out
Totally havent done work I needed to. Between reddit and Cot. Well, Im f**ked. 10pm still at work.
ahh, yes. I remember that. the glorious days of CoT and burnout. thank god I learnt to control my addiction.

The cool part, at least I can take comfort in the fact that I am not a CEO or Vice President or something.

Actually, my one saving grace is this little technique that has really helped me out.
I keep a file called "CHANGELOG.txt" (notes) and whenever I need to keep track of notes or sql queries, code snippets, test user ids, file locations; I just paste them in there. At any point I start forgetting stuff I can kind of go through this file. Has been saving me during these nervous times.
....ok, wtf is that noise and who else is in the in the building with me...
...obviously someone else reading CoT and laughing at your post. Better hope it isn't your boss...

If you're too down, go up.
I am done. I can't believe it, I was thinking another 5 hours. But, I think I finished, at least for now.
Got lucky, the indian programmer added all kinds of useful widgets at the last minute that I could just drop into my code.
