    @cheong: It doesn't matter how important the bug is. A bug fixed on no sleep is two new bugs you don't know about yet.

    I agree with the rest. Maybe it has to be solved by tomorrow, but you also have to not introduce two more bugs by tomorrow. It's a catch 22. The only thing you can do is limit the damage, and not fix the bug.

    @kettch:Had to clear *that* bug before UAT. It's major function. If it's not fixed, the UAT would be a no-show.

    I have always found it better to stop and sleep, then start again early the next morning; like everyone said, you cannot function without sleep, so just have the sleep first.

    I wish I could say that a good sleep makes my code better... but it's just as crap either way.
