Fun New Product at Work

The management at the company I'm working for has sold a couple customers on a product that we as the worker-bees have yet to produce. That being said I view this more as an opportunity to do something new than as a huge hassle, assuming we can figure out a convenient way of producing said product. So I was hoping the great and wonderful MeFi might have a couple suggestions they might throw my way. [more inside]

Whence the 35-hour work week?

New York City and Boston both have standard work weeks of 35 hours. It's 9-5pm but your lunch is included in there. Texas, California, North Carolina have a standard work week of 40 hours, so it's 9-6 to accomodate your lunch hour. I realize that it has to do with your job somewhat, but it is overwhelmingly consistent (even blue/white collar, salaried/hourly). Why? [more inside]

Tired of being the office brain

I have a very good memory, which comes in handy at work when issues come up and I can recall the context and history. However, my colleagues have come to rely on my memory rather than developing their own knowledge or referring to other sources of information.

Will I get paid if I leave today?

I took a temporary night job that I thought would be easy. I worked 2 nights, but quickly found it is horrible. Specifically it involves a lot of manual labor that I wasn't expecting and I am in pain and too exhausted to work my day job. I want to quit now and save my body, rather than give my two weeks. I don't care about the reference, but will I see a paycheck in the mail? [more inside]

Internet documents archive security

I want to archive my personal documents like birth certificate, mark sheet, bond, bank statement details etc by scanning them and storing in the internet. I thought i will scan and store them in my email accounts. (like yahoo etc) However i am not sure, whether storing those documents in yahoo email etc is safe. Can some one suggest a good safe option, where i can scan documents and put them in internet not accessible to others. Are there any free encryption software which encrypts the documents and stores them. It is okay, if some budget software is also available, instead of freeware.

Help me get off unemployment

How should I go about applying for two jobs at the same company? Should I write two cover letters sent a few days apart, or one? And should I express more interest in the job that looks more challenging, even though I'd be perfectly happy in either? Unfortunately, there isn't time to wait for a response from the first, and it's too small a job market to ignore one.

Stressed by relaxation?

I have a couple of ongoing problems at work and at home that require a lot of work and attention to detail. This is quite stressful for me and my family. I need to get involved in family recreational activities because otherwise both I and they will get stressed out. Nonetheless, I can't help feeling irritated and angry by these activities, even if I am the one suggesting them, because they feel like a waste of time and energy compared to the problems that need sorting out. How can I change how I feel about these things?
