I do use screen for my servers, however when I go out of town[1] (our family cabin is in the north woods of Wisconsin, not exactly a 4g hotspot), getting a connection to drop, and having a variable 200-900ms ping while tethered to my phone makes working extremely difficult. Getting that dreaded "server down" text at 2am while on vacation is that much more painful.

[1] Or, for example, right now, where my home internet just went offline about 15 minutes ago and I'm tethered to my phone for connectivity.
