I have titled this thread "Personal Techniques?" I am wondering what quarky little things the ANTIONLINE community does before they start a long project or a rough upgrade or learning a new language.

For instance - Before I am sit down to write a long application I get a hot cup of coffee along with a cold DP (Dr. Pepper) I also usually get some sort of sweets to wrap up my crutches I pull out the ciggies. I then crack every knuckle in my hand, wrists and neck. Then I am off.

So what does everyone else do?
