Question: Do you often experience a mental state of excitement while coding, where you hardly can stop and really want so see that feature running… sometimes loosing the ability to question what you are doing? If yes, do you rather stop or continue the whole night?

    I get obsessive about coding related things at times, but I've gotten better at getting them to an intermediate state that is non-complete but what that I can resume more easily, so I don't have to stay up all night. I do continue to question what I'm doing as I'm doing it, too, and often do a lot of work only to throw it away (or let it live only in my git reflog until it gets gc'd away someday).
