4am

I remember reading this book about a boy and his robot companion when I was ten or so.

Whenever the robot broke he'd just stop and say "error" or some shit, able enough to diagnose that something was wrong, but unable to say exactly what.

I always thought that was pretty fricking lame, and I always think of that stupid story when I'm trying to debug something but have no clue where to even look.

This morning I was debugging why I just suddenly woke up at 4am. I went to bed at 11:30. Surely my body wasn't content with 5.5 hours of sleep. So why am I up? No clue.

"Error."

(heh ... tricked you into reading a boring sleep post by inverting the flow around from its normal "can't sleep" to "lame childhood story")
