I found that in Atlanta, "get up at 8:30 to be able to make it to the
office by 10am" was way less stressful. But my employer was very easy
about time issues (especially since, yes, 50-hour weeks were not
unusual; they weren't too picky about *which* 50 hours).

These days, it's "get up at 8:30 to be able to make it to the office
by 8:32". Everyone should telecommute, and every employer of
desk-jockeys should support it.
