there was an experiment done where a woman was put in a cell, completely isolated from anything that could let her tell time (no windows or clocks, just some research for her to do and etc. etc.). Her cycle slowly became something like 36 hrs sleeping ,44hrs. awake. I'm wondering if you slep in and stay up late alot before this thing, if you can't shift your cycle. give you a very good boost I'd think, if you had been staying awake for extened periods before this thing. that is, if you've got the time to sleep for that long... Cold air helps keep one awake, not shivering, just a gentle breeze of good AC should do it, works for me anyway. And as for caffine, too much of it and you'll have a tendency to "crash", i did that at a friend's house, one minute I'm wide awake playing xbox, next thing I know I'm waking up 10 minutes later getting poked at, after 4 red bulls in one night!!! plus some sugar... I dunno, maybe that's just with me, caffine never did that much to me anyway... good luck to you! btw, what genre are you djing and is this thing getting a webcast?
