For all of you hardworking IT professionals, we hope that the winter holidays provided you with the opportunity to get some much deserved rest and relaxation. In the demanding world of IT, the need to quickly resolve service requests and technical challenges never stops – even when you’re on holiday. For many of you, it’s probably not so easy to pry yourself away from work to enjoy some valuable vacation time. So what's the longest amount of time you've ever taken off?

It depends what you class as a vacation. I have yet to go on vacation from my current job, without working. I constantly pick up emails. So if by vacation you mean, not been at the office, then a couple of weeks. If you mean not done any work, never! =(

Hi there,

6 weeks in 2009 and "unfortunatelly" no Blackberry access (what a pity) ...

Maybe I can arrange a trip to Patagonia, I've heard they still have troubles covering all areas with GPRS - so there is still a chance for silence at last

I did three and a half weeks in India late 08 / early 09 and funnily enough didn't take any tech with me
