I'd go ahead and put a free remote client on her system that can be easily connected


I have a cousin who had come to count on that to ping me any time of the day, since everything's "a quick fix and you don't even need to get out of the house". I eventually removed it and told him it was discontinued, and nobody's ever made a good replacement.

Wow. That would get a phone slammed down pretty hard on my end. I take my breaks on my own terms, thank-you-very-much.

I always tell people who know I'm working from home to consider that, if I was working in an office, would they call me there during office hours, or would they wait until they knew I'm back home. Those who have any sort of common sense at least get that.
