I went to bed at midnight last night, and got up at 5am. I got up in, and knew I wouldn't be able to go back to sleep.
I've been installing Fedora Core 2 (tettnang) on my main workstation. I've had difficulties with the 3D card drivers in the past, and this time was no different. I had to do quite a bit of wrangling to get them to work.
That was part of the reason this happened. I've been excited and anxious to try this out and get it working, and that's been keeping me up. But, I don't think it's the whole reason.
This morning, after I woke up, I washed clothes, recompiled a kernel (after painstakingly going through all the options) and did a number of other things. I've felt pushed and driven.
The only problem is that now I'm not putting my thoughts together anywhere near as well as I know I can manage when I'm not tired. And I feel tired and have a hard time focusing in the day.
It's kind of odd how various concerns will take turns occupying my consciousness and focus so completely.
