Rumor has it, that around 3 in the morning Bill puts a rubber band
around a certain body part in conjunction with the fluid intake 
noted above. The resulting pressure build up and pain keeps him awake
till sunrise.



PS: In addition to some of Bills very good advice a brightly lit shack
also helps fool the body's rythmns. I add an extra lamp in the shack 
of late when I'm doing an "all nighter". I have just shy of 300 watts 
burning in  a 10 x 10 room.
