Slightly drunk is fine, for me it helps for not overengineering things and i just write code that works.

When completely sober, i think to much and i overengineer (overthink) stuff... Programming is just slower...

(Think DDD-like programming)

1 beer is enough to get very concentrated... Just don't overdue it (and don't make a habbit of it).

I only do it when i need to get things done, when time is limited... Never had serious bugs (Windows ME like) though :-P

It happens once in the 2 months and mostly it's for 2-3 days in the weekend (non-stop), with some light kind of music (Enya or concentration like mp3's) and headphones.

Yeah, i'm a nerd then :P
