....well, if most companies adopted a WAH policy, then Chris could be
the DBA for all IDMS sites. I'm sure he wouldn't mind the revenue. But
on a serious note, I was a 'remote' DBA at a client site, and it is not
a desirable situation, for the DBA or the people he/she supports. A
considerable part of a dba's job is political in nature, and working
remotely it's impossible to understand who's doing what to whom, and
it's difficult to head things off at the pass. A remote DBA becomes
interrupt driven, the interrupt being a request for service, after
decisions have been made and often at a point where problems are
interfering with deadlines.

Ok, truth be told, I only wrote this message to see if it still contains
garbled characters in the message text.

"I totally agree with Lutz, which is why I am the only one in my group
that still comes in 5 days.
But now I am beginning to realize that with so many others participating
in WAH from other groups , MVS, Security, communications, the
continuity in social interaction is negated to the point that I might as
well be home. If I have difficulty interacting with anybody wherever I
am working, why am I here?
And I could save $50/wk in gas....
