Not too sure about this...  
I was given a home log-in to my work desktop today, and I'm not really certain that it's a good idea. Up to now, on really busy days at work, I couldn't be expected to work of an evening as well. But now that I can access my work desktop from home, it's a little bit harder to get out of doing extra hours. Of course it would be a bonus if I was short of sick leave and had to work from home for a couple of days because I was too ill to go to work, but that's about the only advantage that I can see.
I'm so used to working with two screens, too, that it will be awkward and difficult to revert to just one. Might have to see if I can log in from my laptop, and connect my big monitor to that as well so I have both screens running.

I know one guy who is in charge of IT for a company building a dam, and it's nothing for him to get a major callout in the middle of the night, only to find that someone's printer is not working....

That would have p*ssed me off majorly!

I once refused to help a guy who did not have his password to log in from home during a weekend upgrade.
I could have gotten it for him, but all developers had been warned : they had to make sure they could log in during the week-end.

That guy called me early on Sunday (I don't really recall "how" early). When I had spent half the night at the office running the upgrade. I had been asleep only for 2-3 hours I think.

I was not happy.

He had to get in the office because I refused to get him his password...

I felt mean. But on the other side, nobody else ever tried it again... :-/
