"If you're in the market for new gear, the Olympus OMD EM-1 is a beautiful peice of micro 4/3rds kit. I had the chance to use it at a photo show recently and it's everything the OM-D EM-5 should have been in a barely bigger package! For…"

"Actually, my MC1 is sort of the problem -- he's getting out soonish (next 6 months), and has short timer syndrome, which means he's passing a lot of his duties to me when I'm not capable or qualified to do them!"

Steve Dallas replied to Jacob Allison's discussion Q: How do you tell your boss you have too much to do?

Q: How do you tel your boss you have too much to do?

Hopefully I can get some good advice here before I either lose it and blow up at my boss or go crazy trying to do everything.I was recently promoted, to a paygrade where my pay finally matched my responsibilities. However, I've also inherited a bunch of new taskings. The biggest problem I'm having is that these new responsibilities are taking time away from a huge, long-term project where I've been the only one working on it for the past 6 months.The deadline for this big project has come and…See More

"In college I always used to put cab money in left pocket and drink money in the right. I'm a righty so that worked out for me. When the right pocket was empty, it was time to go."

20 year old looking for advice from you "white collar" gents.....is the money worth it?

This has always been the area I've struggled with most in my life....finding out what to do for a career. I've never had a passion for one specific thing. There isn't one job that seems to "stick out" over the others. I'm kind of in every direction when it comes to choosing careers. One day I'll think welder, the next it's logistics, the next it's cyber security.
