// I need to try this bit sober some time.
Been there! I coded a web app 1 time where I was doing massive damage control. The guy that was supposed to do it totally dropped the ball.
2 months work and:
20% of code done
Needless to say I was more than simply angry...
I sat at home waking up in the morning then starting to code... Round 10pm I'd start drinking until I finished at around 2~4am. I got a LOT of the app done half blitzed. Strangely enough, I had no problems with bugs. (I coded very conservatively to save time.)
