Try the 6 day week.

You sleep 6 times a week, so that you have 6 days, with 28 hours in each, in a week.

6 * 28 = 168
7 * 24 = 168

That schedule has been shown by studies to drive anyone attempting it for more than a couple weeks absolutely nuts.

I had a mate who tried changing his sleep pattern to 6 half hour naps, i was tempted to try but sadly does not really work when you have to turn up to work everyday slightly awake.
Maybe when i start besieged i will try changing my sleep pattern, then i can map make twice as fast...

You need at the bare minimum 45 minutes of sleep to benefit from R.E.M sleep (the type of sleep that actually refreshes your brain). So half hour naps are no good at all :lol:
What do you know about map making, bitch?

actually gimil, you can train your brain into going straight to rem sleep by power napping 10 minutes at a time. it's really really hard at first but after a while when you fall asleep the brain knows it's not going to last so you go straight to rem.

Yes, but is that worth it? Even for CC? :P

Definitely worth it to get maps made quickly, gives you about 5 hours more time awake a day. about an extra 30% of map making time. Think how many maps cairnswk could have made... :shock:

It does take atleast 2 weeks to get used to a new sleep pattern, hence why it is really bad doing it while at work...
