A shiny, a shiny, my queendom for a shiny!

I work at a desk job where the bulk of my projects take place during the academic year.

Once again, however, the summer slump is kicking my ass. Please hope. [more inside]

My wife and I will both be working from home. What phone set-up is best?

Starting in about a month, my wife and I will both be working from home a fair amount. We are both on the phone a lot. We want to pay as little as possible and are trying to figure out how to deal with the phone situation. I currently use Google Voice and make and receive most of my calls on the home phone, which works well for me. I'm not sure how to deal with the apparent need for 2 phones. Both of us have cell-phones, but we're on the phone so much that we'd rather not be on the cell phones all day. We could obviously just get a 2nd Google Voice number for incoming calls, but I'm not sure how to deal with receiving or making calls while the other person is on the home phone. Thoughts? Should we get a Skype or Vonage number? Just get a 2nd landline? Any good free/cheap options that I'm missing? We're in Portland, OR if that matters. Thanks!

Are we the next Jim and Pam?

I've read all the previous threads about coworker relationships. It's a polarizing issue, and I've generally fallen on the side of opposition of them. Of course, the universe being as it is, I've found myself in a situation where I've fallen pretty badly for a coworker who reciprocates my feelings. We cannot decide if this is worth pursuing. Can you help us? [more inside]

Kinda like musical chairs....but without the music, or the chairs.... just the humiliation of being the one left without a seat.

So, I finally have a job with opportunity for advancement, and two positions have opened up. The glitch is that I'm competing for one of these two positions with two other people, both of whom I work closely with. Also, once the decisions have been made, the two who are selected will have to work with the un-selected one until replacements have been found. I need advice on how to navigate this awkward situation with professionalism and grace. [more inside]

Bucket o' beans...

So, a few of us suggested to our manager that we, his employees, conduct second-round interviews on domain-specific knowledge the manager probably doesn't know well enough to judge himself. Manager agreed, we did the interviews, some people got hired. Recently, Manager mentioned to us in private that we should appreciate this sort of autonomy because there were places where this would not fly at all. Should I be worried? [more inside]
