When you spend a very long time at the computer, working on your dissertation (or other big project) but come away feeling like you have achieved nothing, but you are also no longer able to function normally. Usually cured by alcohol.

When you have been working on your dissertation for a a long time (subject to your own interpretation of a long time) and you start to forget random but important information.
