Polyphasic Sleep Log: Day 3

Posted by admin

Last night was by far the worst night yet. It was a real struggle to stay awake during the 2am to 7am ‘shift’ and I was stuck doing tasks that didn’t require a lot of mental activity.

Despite the feeling that there is a constant fog surrounding my brain, I must say that all this extra time is quite the blessing. I’ve been able to get quite a bit done around the house in the last two days.

So far I’ve finished painting my daughter’s room, I’ve built my toolbox, put up insulation under the floor boards of my home, fixed my wife’s computer, sanded my daughter’s toy chest, cleaned up the house every night (much to my wife’s delight) and began training in MMA (Mixed Martial Arts) again (beginning at 6am).

I still am not quite able to sit down and read or write without getting really drowsy. Most — if not all — of the activities are active. I hope this changes. The biggest reason for doing this was to find more time to invest in my blog, as well as some other ventures that I want to pursue. If this ‘fog’ remains a constant it will not be worth it for me.

For better or worse, I plan on giving this a full 30-day test. If after 30 days the ‘Everyman’ sleep schedule isn’t helping me pursue the things that I’ve set goals towards achieving, then I will end it. On the other hand, if it really can give me the same mental alertness as I experience during daylight hours, then I may continue it indefinitely.

All in all, despite the fatigue and sleep deprivation, I’m really enjoying this experiment. I enjoy activities that push me mentally and physically. I guess I live by the maxim that “pain is weakness leaving the body.” I know that sounds a bit masochistic but I’ve really noticed that the more that I push myself either physically or mentally, the more capacity I have to withstand or overcome future adversity. Sure, this is nothing other than an organisms adaptation response, but it’s still cool. ;)

AGLOCO is finally dead…

Posted by admin

Not that I’m surprised. Almost 3 months ago, when I heard that they were trying (again) for another round of financing, I knew something was up with them so I made up my mind to discontinue using this blog to promote them.

Well now it looks like they still are having troubles turning a profit. Here’s the email I got from them:

Dear Erich,

We would like to update you on the status of AGLOCO’s operations. We continue to believe in the AGLOCO concept, but our revenue is currently not sufficient to give Members a meaningful distribution. And though there are increases in membership, the resulting revenue is not enough to support operating costs. As a development team we are unable to continue to use our savings to fund the operations. If any Member would like to pursue continuing the operations of AGLOCO, you may contact us at agloco1@live.com .

We would like to thank every Member for supporting our effort to bring a piece of the Internet directly to the user. We hope that we can find a way to keep the operations going.

AGLOCO Development Team

AGLOCO was a great idea that definitely had the potential lift it needed with all its support around the web but it lacked the execution it needed to take off. That’s too bad. Maybe someone will buy it and try to build wings this time. ;)
