Today I learned that jet lag is a much uglier beast than I ever anticipated. I don't remember having this much trouble last time I came back from the US; perhaps because I wasn't there for as long and the different timezone didn't seep into my sleep cycle as much? All week I've been getting up in the middle of the day and then being unable to fall asleep until insane morning hours (think 6 or 7am).
This seems to throw my whole day into a tailspin, especially because the wakeup isn't exactly nice and the sleep doesn't leave me rested at all. As a result this whole week I've barely managed to stitch 30 productive hours together. Most of which came as the cram session for the Thursday exam. Sure hope this thing passes soon.
Anyone know of a ready-made library existing already?
Of course making soem sort of distributed cache with minimal involvement from the server will be the real issue ... but definitely worth exploring.
