Oh I miss those days...oh wait, no I don't. If I had $300 a time when I got a call that was user error in the middle of the night, I would have made more in 18 months of on call pay than in the same time of my regular salary

Those I don't mind. If I wake up in my first hour, it takes me a few minutes to clear it out. Unless of course it's a box...adrenalin tends to wake me up pretty quickly.

I hate to boast. (Well, actually I don't) but it is one of my own laws. I just forgot about it is all

Well i ended up gong back home at 6:50am, couldn't sleep and ended up back in the office at 11:30. I get off in 30 minutes. I"m a little spacy at this point since i'm working with 3 hours of sleep.

on the plus side, I do get $500 just to be on call, and if i get a call, its $50 per call, per hour. So I end up with $650 before taxes for this morning's inconvenience.

Maybe I can afford some hops and brew this weekend

Or driving a couple hours on a Saturday night to resolve a "Level A" problem (6 hour resolution), only to find out the idiot that called in the problem had changed the locks on the building & hadn't set new keys to the main office. Got him out of bed at 1 a.m. to let us into the building. He wanted to downgrade to a Level B (48 hours), but I pointed out that a Level A HAD to be resolved, it could not be downgraded. So, he drives over, lets me in and I push the reset on the building's router.

He bitched to my Senior VP, who told him the problem wasn't even a Level B and he shouldn't have called it in in the first place. And next time he made security changes without keep our group current, he would be looking for a new job.

Monday was good.
