Day or night coding?

Or more general: in which hours are you most productive?

After many many many attempts at coding from 12AM to 5AM (even waking up in the evening) I can safely say that coding in the morning is much more productive.

I'm generally a more productive coder later in the day, but I'm a more productive thinker in the morning. Sometimes it takes me a while to get past thinking and onto doing.

Same! I do most of my planning/process work in the morning. But if I start coding in the evening I can easily go until 2 AM.

I generally prefer coding in the evenings as I find I'm more productive with less distractions. I usually have my "ah-ha" moments in the day time and put them in to practice in the evenings.

Hmm I code during the day because I have to, but I code / make during nighttime because I like to :D Generally more productive at night though so I have to compensate with caffeine during daytime.

Night, usually. The day annoys me too much.
