Cheating Sleep

I planned to watch Heroes on Tivo at 2:00 AM tonight, but apparently, Tivo thinks it's crazy for people to watch TV that late, and told me it wouldn't let me watch because it was updating it self.

On Wired's How To section, they offer an introduction to polyphasic sleep, and they offer suggestions on how to get better quality sleep, even if you get few hours.

The schedules the suggest are a bit rigid for my taste. I'll stick with my 4-6 hours a night during the week and 10-12 hours a night on the weekend.

A six-year study Kripke headed up of more than a million adults ages 30 to 102 showed that people who get only 6 to 7 hours a night have a lower death rate than those who get 8 hours of sleep.
