That's fair enough, but please realize this is a backup position. This means
that the first response person hasn't been able to address the issue, and
that this is a business-critical item. Obviously not all issues are such.
For vacations, this can be synchronized with people in the company (myself)
and shouldn't be a problem, but yes - one may have to skip out of the movie
(and/or) theatre if a server goes down and nobody else is able to address
the issue. This is no different than working in an IT position in a software

Hi Yaron,

thanks for the clarification regarding your name.

As you already answered this part on the list let me also answer here.

IMHO the concern is not with the night shift but that if you always want a
15 minutes response time than the person taking this cannot leave her
computer and the internet connection at a distance of more than 15 minutes.

So for example cannot travel (though this can be solved by having a mobile
Internet connection) and cannot go to a movie or a theatre as there she
won't be available for more than 15 minutes..
