I hate to be the odd one out here, but I actually find that I am extremely
productive when I'm tired. It's easier for me to commit completely to the
code, when I'm well-rested I dream about running through fields of
sunflowers and such, get distracted more easily. The code I write when I'm
tired is usually of marginally worse quality, but it's usually easy to audit
it when I'm rested and fix any problems. Although if I'm trying to solve
something particularly difficult, especially something I've never done
before, sometimes I won't be able to do it until I wake up a bit. Note that
this is for being tired, not exhausted. If I'm exhausted I write a whole
lot of awful code that I have to completely rewrite when I wake up.
