Working over the holidays, we are?
It's the life we lead. We work when other people are off. If you are a managed service provider and you provide outsourced IT services, you need to work when your customers are closed.
The holidays are always a great time to do large-scale projects in IT. If you have in-house IT staff then you need to have your staff work overnight, on the weekends and often over long holidays when you have down time.
