I originally read about the schedule on everything2. In essence, someone utilizing the Uberman sleep schedule is actively modifying their sleeping habits so that they can immediately jump from waking to a few minutes worth of stage 1 sleep straight to stage 5 REM sleep, as described in this discussion of sleep stages. It is important to note that there are no studies as to the long-term physical or physiological impact of this sleep cycle. The Uberman's Sleep Schedule Sleeping Hours The Uberman's sleep schedule revolves around forcing yourself to rely on six twenty to thirty minute naps spread throughout the day for your daily dose of sleep.

The program is a design interface that takes a given form, in this case a sweater, and allows me to draw and generate crochet patterns in the "sweater space". The resultant pattern is too complex to follow as you would a normal crochet pattern, so once a pattern is generated, I can go back through it with the program and follow along step-by-step as I crochet.

My fascination with crochet patterns, sparked by the Institute for Figuring's hyperbolic crochet patterns was increased when I researched the parallel histories of textiles and computation. One of the most important breakthroughs in computation was made by Charles Babbage and his designs for the Analytical Engine. Recipe Listing - The Stoners Cookbook. Make a silver ring for 25 cents.
