I rarely have issues but is always a chance that something is going to go wrong, so everyone is sitting there waiting for the all clear. I was able to make the case that having developers, DBAs, and sysadmins sitting around in the middle of the night was counterproductive. It was fraught with tension during the middle of the night after a long day at work. Now we do it at 1pm on saturday, it is amlost leisurely now. Just a quick call to check in. Some people even call the voice bridge from the beach!
