in reply to OT: When to put things live

simon.proctor++ ... that's pretty close to how we handle it. Sometimes we have pushes that would impact customers (database needs to go down because you cannot pre-live) so we also evaluate the impact to the end-user. If it's too much of an impact, we co-ordinate to do the push off hours (weekend or after biz hours). I'd say more than 90% of our pushes follow your rules and about 2-3 times a year I can expect to be working on a Saturday.

    I'll second that... much the same where I am.
    One added thing - whenever possible (and it's not always possible), I try to have the "live" system up and running for a day before announcing it. One last chance to check for... unforseen consequences :-)
