Feeling fuzzy in the head yet? Or just generally confused?

My mind is drifting to nonsensical blurbs akin to a salad. I only observe it. This shall pass... It has to pass.

Just you watch as I overcome this mere fatigue. It's nothing but an illusion to me. It has no say in my actions. I shall adapt.

I did this for a few weeks last year.

But I stopped it because there is no suitable alarm clock for this using the computer is annoying I tried the phone calender with periodic entries but that didn't work either not loud enough.  

I would be willing to give it another try if you know of a convenient solution Wink

First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they keep laughing, then they start choking on their laughter, and then they go and catch their breath. Then they start laughing even more.

Wait until you start slurring your words and bumping into things.

All I can say is that this is Bitcoin. I don't believe it until I see six confirmations.

Those tick, they stop ringing after a few seconds and cannot remind me when it is time to take a nap.

Ideally there would be something which automatically adjusts the length of the nap if I postpone one, I have a device which could be programmed to do this but I can't find it atm.  Huh

Heh, I just remember to nap every 4 hours and one ring is enough for me. I think you need a smartphone.

A smartphone with a Nap APP, that is.

I wrote a script that knows my weekly schedule and beeps the internal speaker of my computer at various frequencies. It could also be used for things like this.

I have a script that opens this page at a pre-set time: http://onlineclock.net/alarm.html
The script is a bit crude, but simple.

Code:
import webbrowser
import time

ALARMHa = 7
ALARMMa = 00

while True:
dt = list(time.localtime())
hour = dt[3]
minute = dt[4]
if hour == ALARMHa and minute == ALARMMa:
webbrowser.open("http://onlineclock.net/alarm.html")
time.sleep(1)

(Actually my script is slightly more elaborate, and interfaces with a serial port to flash my room light on and off. But you probably don't have that setup anyway.)

This whole project is quite fascinating for me, because I hit snooze for an hour each morning, and sleep for about 12 hours on weekends. I like to sleep too much.

i work from 12-16 hours a day. I seem to need more sleep than my coworkers and it could cost me my job if we were to be really busy for a sustained enough period. So i'm going to look into this, to train my mind to REM more quickly.

I suggest starting much less extreme than this and building it into your lifestyle. Nightshift understamd that an hour sleep at lunchbreak makes all the difference. If you can then eat on the job you're ok. Shift work may help to do more with it. In terms of training perhaps a 2 week holiday might be enough to do it.

Take it easy when training, tiredness is a killer.
