I’m drafting this post for Sunday today, which is Saturday. Mainly because I don’t like to do much work on Sunday, except for the honey-do list that comes with brand new home ownership. Today’s story is about IT Support on call.
When I worked for a company who distributes auto parts, I was in an on call rotation with five other help desk colleagues. It was a decent gig. We had to come in each evening of our week at 10:00 PM to swap out the tape backups before the mainframe ran the backup sequence. Thankfully, the system didn’t run backups on Sundays.
