What's better -- high pay or a good team?

Should I stick with a secure, high-paying IT career where I'm a solo developer with no possibility of advancement, or switch to a much-lesser paying career where I can be part of a team and a larger company and perhaps even advance in the next few years? [more inside]

lunching with interns

i've become somewhat chummy with an intern at work this summer. i guess i have a stupid little crush on her actually. she's leaving in a couple of weeks. is it a bad idea to have lunch with her away from the workplace? professionally AND socially? nothing is going to happen beyond this, it would be logistically impossible. (i'm twice her age, married 15+ yrs) - it is rare for me to "click" with people, but when i do, it's significant, as in this case, i'm somewhat of an individualist. i've talked a couple of times to my wife about intern etc, but would not go out of my way to tell her about a lunch, "lunching" is atypical for me --but if she learned, would probably roll her eyes.

When is that tiny paycheck worth it?

My yearly take-home income at my day job is about 17K. I'm starting to reevaluate exactly how long I can live on something like that, and I'd like some advice. Is it foolish to leave a steady paycheck in a bad economy, even if that paycheck is peanuts, for a "possibly" more lucrative option? For those of you who have left a job you were unhappy with when times were rough, do you regret it? [more inside]

Whoa oh oh. Listen to the music. All the tiiiiime.

Are you forced to listen to the same music every day at work or elsewhere, and do you like it, dislike it, or just not notice it? Mainly, I'm curious how you manage to deal with it, or if I'm really that sensitive to repetitive music. Or are you the one playing the same station out loud every day? Have you had any incidents arise from it from co-workers/colleagues? And is Fergie's "Big Girls Don't Cry" really that addictive... still? [more inside]

Project manager? Technical lead? Code monkey?

I'm happy at the tech company I work for but am increasingly concerned about my career progression. Nearly a year ago, I took on new role as a project manager, moving from a role with a mix of development and client technical liaison/consulting. My company is currently strongly encouraging me to take on even more of a project management role. I think I'd rather move towards working as a technical lead, I'm concerned that getting myself too far removed from technical work now could make it too difficult to move back later. I could really use some advice from Metafilter-ites with experience in tech firms and technical project management! [more inside]

Clean Shirt but Smelly Underarms?

I'm a clean guy by nature, I take showers daily, and use deoderant. The problem is when I do any kind of physical work that's not too strenuous (aka dancing, carrying bags) my armpits sweat a bit, but not a lot, but the smell is strong! The result of this that I'm forced to throw a perfectly clean t-shirt into the laundry bag just because the underarm areas smell. Is there any way to kill this smell, I feel like I'm wasting money on cleaning clean shirts :\ Any and all advice is welcome!
