New MacBook or new MacBook Pro?
The two announced this week... - Julian
I like the new Pro. I'd been thinking of going with the 15", but the new 13" Retina has twice the real-estate of my current one (I'm sure I can find neurosurgeon glasses somewhere, for when I'm traveling), twice the memory (in a word: 8gb, for me is GAH!!) and two Thunderbolt ports, so I can use my 24" Dell again (or buy a $99 Acer. Dick likes using the Dell with his office Dell.) - Mary B: #TeamMonique
I like it so much I just might trade my current machine in early - if not now, then in May, the next time I go back home. - Mary B: #TeamMonique
A VAR there has a long-term lease program called New Computer for Life - I trade my machine in every two years for a monthly payment. As tricked-out as I need, the payment runs about $60; normal people - non-Photoshop, non-video and probably non-dev folks - can get by with about half that. - Mary B: #TeamMonique

Last night, I dreamed that there was a Walt action figure.
This now needs to become a reality. - Julian
This would work for creating a Walt Action figure, but does not include an option for creating a female action figure: http://www.vicale.com/maleond... - Galadriel C.
*bumping for Walt* - Rochelle *boom* Hartman
Which Walt did you have in mind? Certainly not this one... - walt crawford
Yes, sir. It was you. - Rochelle *boom* Hartman
Anyone else looking up to customize a minifig? - bentley
This sounds like a perfect maker space project. 3D printer, anyone? - Andy
I'd chip in. - Meg VMeg
And this is why I love you all :) - Jen
Can it be like the Fonz with thumps up action? - Joe
I would buy one. And I almost never buy anything. - laura x from iPhone
Can we make a tiny Cites and Insights to go with the figurine? - Marie
Sigh. I apparently lost my (custom, 30th anniversary, pair) wedding ring today, so I'm currently not feeling very action-y. Depressed and upset and... but right now, I'm just not up for anything. - walt crawford
Crap, any idea where you lost it? - Meg VMeg
That's too bad, Walt. I once lost mine for 10 months (it was in the bottom of a deep kitchen drawer filled with tupperware). I also lost it for 15 minutes on the day after I got married as we were flying to our honeymoon (I found it under the cushion of my seat). - Stephen Francoeur
No idea. Retraced our walk, called the two places I'd been, looked *everywhere* in the house--and, because Tuesday's garbage/recycling day, we spent a couple of hours going through the garbage, green waste (I'm degrassing the front yard) and recycling: Finally had dinner at 8 p.m. instead of the usual 6 p.m. - walt crawford
Later this morning I'll go through the not-yet-recycled buckets of grass, etc. one more time, probably shovel & sift through a few cubic feet of soil, revisit two places, and call the police dept. to see if they have a lost & found. And try to get things back to normal. Very little likelihood of finding it. Still not up for action figure, I'm afraid... - walt crawford
My wife had been suggesting that I have a ball mounted on inside of ring (she has this) to help prevent it slipping off the finger; I found the ball really uncomfortable, so resisted. As usual, she was/is right. UPDATE: Wedding ring found. - walt crawford
Hooray! Now can we have the action figure? - Cameron Neylon
Walt, I have two balls on one of the rings I wear (it belonged to my great-grandmother and then my grandmother)--I've gotten used to them much more quickly than I thought I would. - laura x
Laura: Thanks for that. I'm definitely going to get it done (and it is two balls, not one). - walt crawford
yay wedding ring found!! - Stephan!e•CogSc!L!brar!an
Yay! - bentley
Yay! I've actually "lost" my wedding ring twice over the years and ended up finding it. The first time was on a business trip to the UK only about a year or two after we got married. I noticed it was gone while on the plane and spent the whole time sweating it out. Fortunately, it was sitting on the top of my clothes in my suitcase when I got home. It probably fell off while I was packing after my shower. - John Dupuis
Also, I vote for a Walt action figure, even if only a virtual one. - John Dupuis
I saw one of these machines at the Toys R Us in Times Square over the weekend: http://marvel.com/news... - Stephen Francoeur

What is your FF Comments/Likes Ratio? (Comments divided by Likes to 2nd decimal place - as of now) - http://flickr.com/photos...
What is your FF Comments/Likes Ratio? (Comments divided by Likes to 2nd decimal place - as of now)
1.05 (670/633) - Micah from Bookmarklet
Can you remind me again where to find those stats? - Brian Johns
Brian, go to "Me" link (http://friendfeed.com/brianjo...) which defaults to the Feed tab. Look at the sidebar on the right, below Discussion. - Micah
0.75 (926/1226) - still relatively new here - mikepk
I only see my stats for the last week (17/14 = 1.21) Please tell me your 670 number is for more than just a week! - Brian Johns
1.44 (566/391) for brianjohns (after week tally you should see a comma then 'all time' count - I can see it on your page) - Micah
OK, sorry. I'm a total dumbass. I stopped reading after the weekly totals... - Brian Johns
3.74, which seems way off of everybody else's. I wonder what that says. I comment a lot more than I like. - Cyrus Lendvay
FFers use FF with their own strategy or simply default tendencies. The ratio is an interesting snapshot of behaviour. Thanks for joining in everyone, hope more keep flowing in. - Micah from twhirl
0.79 - Brian Roy
0.77 - Shey
0.76 - FFing Enigma
1.39. - Rochelle
1.61 - I only 'like' when I want to throw my support behind a topic but don't have anything constructive to add. - Bjorn Stromberg
5.08 (3181/626) ! - ◄ani625Ξ ಠ_ಠ
0.66 - I tend to 'like' things without needing to comment further, I guess, and I notice I usually like the things upon which I comment. Well, frequently. - ɐ ɯıʞ sıɹɥɔ
.39 (2457/6242) I guess I don't comment much. I do 'like' a lot of things, it would seem. - Bren
0.62 then again i have over 11,000 comments - Cee Bee
1.23 (5287/4229) - I am put to shame by Cee Bee's participation, good grief! - Lindsay
@Cee Bee I think you meant 0.62 - ◄ani625Ξ ಠ_ಠ
1.27 (902/705) - Leandro Ardissone ⍨
yes, thanks for the correction. lindsay, you're making me feel bad. lol - Cee Bee
0.8576, I only like mostly when I'm going to comment - Molly Song ;)
1.55 endlessly repeating. This Like/Comment included. - Dana D
before this comment: .69 I kid you not. - InPerpetualMotion(Gina k)
So far: Average: 1.27 | Median: 0.81 ... (if you average 1 comment per like, you'd be 1.0 ... if you're 0.xx you might herd content more than discuss ... if you're whole numbers above 1 you may not 'like' much or discuss plenty or both) - Micah
CSV_A: 1.05,0.75,1.44,0.81,3.74,0.79,0.77,0.67,0.77,0.76,1.39,1.8,1.61,1.12,0.141,5.08,2.41,0.66,.39,0.62,.62,1.27,0.8576,1.551,0.69 - Micah
1.83 - Grant Bierman
I tend to like allot of photos which really don't need comments. - InPerpetualMotion(Gina k)
InPerpetualMotion(Gina k), I really liked this 'Like' of yours (in a series of pics, so I flickr fav'd it): http://friendfeed.com/e... and commented. Thanks! - Micah
.37 1002/2708 - Michael Fidler
this is what scobes walls would like if he didnt have FF - sean percival
I haven't seen Marc Canter's fabled fence (just heard about it), but I imagine this but on wood pickets :) - Micah
This week: 2.48 (1162:467) but this is not the norm, my likes usually match or are higher than comments, overall: 0.95 (14228:14846). - Kol Tregaskes
Thanks Michael, Kol! I'll recalculate average/median when we build up some more data points here. - Micah
1.03 748/723 - Keith - @tsudo
.68 6986/10194 Someone wrote a great article on the comment-like ratio a few months ago. Search on FriendFeed is crashing on me... I'll try to get the link. - Mitchell Tsai
Thanks Mitchell (btw, search crashing on me too - lots) - Micah
1316 comments/20221 likes (0.06), according to Windows Calculator, although I probably screwed up. - Tyson Key
*bump* - Micah
Thanks, Mark! - Micah
Thanks Spidra! - Micah
0.95 (1520/1604) - it's 2+ months later, and my ratio flipped (more Likes by .05) - Micah
.7 (1204/1724) - before this comment at least. - Rachel Lea Fox
Thanks, Rachel! - Micah
3.46 (3665/1057) before this comment and like. - Kevin Fox

I've got stuff to say. - Kevin Fox

Thanks for joining in, Bryce. - Micah
.15 all time, .13 this week. - Alix May
Thank you, Alix and David! (and Alix, you're tied with Siavash for the Highest Like ratio. Wow). - Micah
2.94 - j1m
Thank you, j1m. Ok, I'm gonna roll this up into a csv and call it a night. - Micah
CSV_B: 0.95,0.7,3.46,3.98,1.02,0.15,0.34,0.52,1.31,0.56,0.16,1.39,4.62,2.63,0.15,0.52,2.94 - Micah
this week = 0.45%, alltime = 6.43% - chaz2b
CSV_B Mean: 1.49 (previous mean for CVS_A: 1.27) - Micah
Of course the numbers can easily lie, but I'm gonna say it anyway: "We're getting more conversational, people!" - Micah
0.49 (493/988) - Bluesun 2600
816 / 2502 = 0.326139089 overall | 50 / 233 = 0.214592275 this week I like much more than I comment. (maths via google) - Chris Loft
3026/5013 = 0.6036 - Roger Chen
chaz2b, Bluesun 2600, Roger, Nicholas — thank you! - Micah
5.25 but I don't know what this *means, yet. maybe I'm just stingy with my "likes" compared to others? - Marg Uerite
Thanks jamar78 and Marg! - Micah
A recent change in FF: now the comment count shows total number of comments (previously multiple comments in one thread only counted as one) http://friendfeed.com/e... so all the numbers above are from the old methodology.... - David HC Soul
My new ratio: 0.76 all time (old methodology .52).... this week 1.39 - David HC Soul
*bump* - Micah
1.26 (2965/2346) - Micah
Thanks, Glen and pea! - Micah
Looks like my ratio as flipped again (comments back to dominating again). Seems to match my own awareness I've lately been commenting without Liking (commenting is my inherent recognition of value to me and the additional Like is when it merits an extra bump to help discovery by others). - Micah
.38 - Ryan Dadey
Ryan, I have to say, that's one high caliber ratio ;) - Micah
An update it's .44 which is an improvement from .36 - Michael Fidler
2.94 1040/354 I have likes set to post to twitter automatically, so I'm careful with them. :) - guruvan (Rob Nelson)

Ahsan, huh, I'd never considered that. - Micah

.53 (3062/5777) for Will Higgins #math-on-demand-services - Micah
Thank you, amin/gnu - Micah
1.45 (4374/3026) - Micah
0.92 now. I think the movie reviews have been getting me closer to a 1 to 1 ratio. - Steven Perez
Steven, yep, you were a 0.85 in April. - Micah
2.10 now ... - Amani
0.97 now. - Eric Johnson
Amani, so your comments have climbed a bit. - Micah
Thanks, Eric. - Micah
yes, but i am not consciously "not liking" things - Amani from IM
Probably, just chattier then :) - Micah
I'm down from 7.16 to 6.94 :-) - Ken Sheppardson
the live NBA playoff threads have ALOT to do with it. - Amani from IM
Ken, the FCC may be interested to explore how your "I'm down" may be offensively self-deprecating ;) - Micah
.56 eeep, must try harder - Threepwood
4.52. I don't bother to like things I've commented on, since commenting already flags it as interesting. - Andy Bakun
0.46 (1698/3638) - Glenn Slaven
Threepwood, Andy, Glenn - thanks (Andy, that's my mo too; then I'll Like if it warrants a "double vote"). - Micah
1.31 (4,471/3,401) - Karoli
Thanks, Karoli. And the both of us have a _very_ similar ratio and absolute numbers. wow. - Micah
Thanks, Ryo! - Micah
Andy, scroll upward and you'll see a couple calculations from before (January: Average: 1.27 | Median: 0.81) - Micah
In March the Mean was: 1.49 - Micah
1.021276595744680851063829787234042553191489361702127659... via Wolfram Alpha - tom murphy
Thanks, tom. And though a bit verbose, your friend Wolfram is resourceful :D - Micah
0.55 (254/444) - Willem (@wim66) ☠
Thank you, Willem. - Micah
In April you were 0.97, so you're liking more / commenting less. - Micah
1.88 (779/414) - Ton Zijp
Thanks, Ton. - Micah
0.43 (3597/8305). - Parth Awasthi
0.74 (1970/2667) - Kristin of Two Everything
And thank you Parth, Scott. - Micah
Parth, compared to your April numbers, you've been consistent. - Micah
Thanks, Rick! - Micah
.54 (4148/7674) Updated! - Michael Fidler
Rick, you mean that face with glasses I photoshopped tint into with an apparently disembodied arm which is actually very much attached to my eldest son? It's mostly just me :) - Micah
Thanks, Michael. Yes, you have a rising tide of comment percentage (oh, wow, you were one of the originals from January - cool!) - Micah
1.82 from 798 comments / 438 likes - David Damore
Thanks, nivé and David! - Micah
2027/1594 = 1.27 - Brome

2.9 (3,242/1,116) mhhh.. time to straighten my use of FF a bit.. thanks for this entry - Thierry R. Andriamirado
Brome, Marc and Thierry - thank you! - Micah
Thierry - yeah, 2.9 is fairly high - got to pick the pace on like side :) [but hey, whatever works for you is fine] - Micah
1.91 - MiniMage
Thank you Nicholas and MiniMage! - Micah
Yeah, that's a decent upward rise in comments, Nicholas. - Micah
.6 (6,000/10,000) 3rd update - Now it's time to flip this on its head. My goal is to have (16,000/16,000) next time I post here. Regardless of what happens, I'm just looking forward to the next 10,000 comments, likes, posts, and new relationships I make here. It's all good! - Michael Fidler
1.76 (7539/4290) My commenting habits haven't chanced much, but it felt like I clicked Like a lot less, and this ratio confirms that for me. - Micah
It's that time again. - Micah

0.78 - Pete D
.82 as of right now. edit: on January 8th it was 0.39 -- when I saw that, I decided to make more of an effort to comment. When I hit 10k "likes" I decided I wouldn't "like" anything else until I also had 10k comments. - Bren
And thank you Jimminy, Pete, Bren and Penguin! - Micah
2.47 as of right now. - Jonas, Leper of FF
Micah, are you doing something with these numbers? If so sounds interesting. - OCoG of FF, Jimminy
0.58 - Absentee
Jimminy, I'm copyrighting every single number. It's kind of a honeypot ;) Actually, it was curiosity mostly, but I also hope to build a sampling (small and self-selecting as it may be) for anyone who might want to analyze it. - Micah
Jonas, James and Kurt - thanks you! - Micah
You're welcome. I hope the results do some good. :-) - Absentee
.31. I have almost 4 times as many likes as comments. - edythe
Thank you edythe and Eric! - Micah
195/245 makes 0.8 rounded not including this one which would be 196/245 making 0.8 unrounded, - tom murphy

1.67 (19,550/11,684) - Mitchell Tsai
Bryan, Mitchell and Jeff P. - thanks, guys! - Micah

I don't know I just like that picture - Brian Hendrickson

Mine was exactly 2:1 about a week ago. Did a screenshot when I had 2,000 comments and 1,000 likes. - Joe from iPod
SuezanneC, Brian, B E N and Joe - thank you all very much! - Micah
Joe, it's like see the odometer click through a nice round number - it's just inexplicably engaging. :) - Micah
1.40, nearly the square root of two. - Vezquex
Thanks, Raphael and Andy! - Micah
12.23 (844 / 69 ) I guess I take my likes seriously ;) - Chris Myles
Wow I didn't realize I was so out of whack!! 12.23 that's got to be a record (and I don't even import my feeds with the summary as a comment)!! - Chris Myles
Thanks JA, Chris (wow, 12+ is unusual :), Serkan and Nine! - Micah
Micah.. I told you I take my likes seriously; ). You *might* want to ask (in a separate post) what percentage of likes were used to "bookmark" a post or save it for later VS actually "liking it". I NEVER used like for that.. but I did use a private group that if filled with my own topics (and comments).. - Chris Myles
1.78 (8529/4782) - Micah
Likes are down relative to comments, which matches my much lower frequency of liking. I'm a more selective liker than ever. - Micah
I don't think I could argue that any particular kind of ratio is "best", because if Lurkers like to Lurk and cultivate (via Likes) and the Chatty-ites love to chat, to pump out much many more comments than Likes, each can be happy and make for a great social experience. - Micah
383/372 - Ashish
'Just clicking "Like" seems too easy' — Jason, that's because you're from the Chatty-ite tribe :) - Micah
Thanks, ashish. - Micah
wow, what a difference time makes, when i 1st posted on this thread, 6.43%, now = 1.25%, for a 5.18% difference, :o (and this is the earliest post to date i've recovered of my activity on ff) - chaz2b
chaz, I think there's been a big fluctuation for most people (maybe not that much). This is the oldest post on which you commented that you've recovered? - Micah
When I first saw this: 1.91 Sept 28: 1.94 - MiniMage
536 comments in the last month has me at .8736...still creeping toward 1.00 - Bren
Thanks, MiniMage (2x participant!), Bren (3x!) and Shannon (your inaugural visit!) - Micah
Thank you, SustainedEuphoria. - Micah
Thanks, Mark. - Micah
1.45 - Brett Kelly
Thanks, Brett :) - Micah
5.67 all time. Second highest ratio on here. Woot! I love to talk. - Kevin L
Thank you both, Kevin and mridul (the two of you balance it each well :) - Micah
1.80 (10,189 / 5,666) [compared to Likes, my Comments still continue to rise] - Micah
1.02 (10323/10161) - Bren
.5666 currently (30,084/53,093) - Scoble, Alex Scoble
Thanks, Bren. - Micah
Thank you, Alex :) - Micah
that was my third post... It's interesting to see how the number has changed. of course, I manipulated the number to a degree, because I stopped "liking" things for a while... - Bren
Bren, the other thing that can seriously throw off someone's stats is a feed that upon each item it imports adds a comment automatically. - Micah
true. that can seriously inflate comment stats, of course. Then you have someone like RAPatton, who posts a gazillion comments, in part because of his playlist posts where he will list each song in a separate comment. I found, after this post in fact, that I tended to "like" things much more frequently than comment on them, that I was lurking instead of participating. I have changed the way I use ff rather considerably, and I think for the better. - Bren
Thanks, Sarah, Tutivillus. - Micah
1.19 - Joe Bonner
Micah this is like 11 months ago, I see you have almost doubled your rate. lets make a graph for everybody now, :) - ۳۰ مرغ Loves Y'ALLLLL
Quick, someone write a greasemonkey script to inline some google charts! (tap-tap-tap...wut? don't look at me ;) - Micah
Thanks, Joe. And you thank you, Mahmood :) - Micah
Thanks, Glen! Your comments in the ratio have gone up too. - Micah
1.70 (it was 1.41 on Jan 8) - WoH: Professor MOTHRA
WorldofHiglet, thank you :) The comments are strong in this one. - Micah
0.64 (2,589/4,051) - Chieze Okoye
0.58 - Thomas Page
Chieze and Thomas - thank you! - Micah
*bumpage* - Micah
So, Micah, we never did find out what you were doing with this info.... - WoH: Professor MOTHRA
0.27 (5637/20234) - I only see a couple people lower than me. - John (bird whisperer)

This seems like a good night for a pie.
What sort of pie? - LB needs a break. from Android
A tomato pie, featuring mozzarella, pepperoni, sausage, garlic, onions, and cherry peppers. - Julian
Along with this pie, I enjoyed Pumking (2011 vintage). - Julian
We've decided to start making pies and we'll be commencing tomorrow with what we're referring to as a "breakfast pie" on account of it containing bacon, sausage, beans, eggs, and hash browns. - Mark H

Hoping that the impending snow for tomorrow will not be so bad.
I'm expecting it to be bad in the short run because what fell last night will be underneath it. But the good news is that it's March, so hopefully it will melt quickly. - John (bird whisperer)

I admit it. I eat all of the pretzels out of the chex mix first because I don't like them as much.
I used to eat Capn Crunch Crunchberries that way, leaving just the crunchberries for the end (best for last). I think I did the same with any cereals with marshmallows in them: Lucky Charms, Boo Berry, etc. - Stephen Francoeur
The pretzels have the least flavor in the mix. - Julian
Hah! I pick them out and toss them to the dogs. Share the love... - WebGoddess
I do this with jellybeans. Pink and orange first because yuck. - RepoRat
I don't eat jellybeans anymore, but when I did, the black ones got taken out and and given to that cousin who liked them even though non of the rest of us understood why. So he'd have basically an easter basket with all black jellybeans. Ah, memories. :) - ellbeecee
I'll eat them! I love black jellybeans! - RepoRat
My mom makes killer Chex Mix. She started just leaving out the stuff we kept picking over. :D - Hedgehog

Well, boo. :-( The car now needs a new windshield.

In FL windshields are ALWAYS covered by insurance, even for a chip, no deductible. You may want to check. - Shannon - GlassMistress
mine in NC wasn't covered -- well, it was, but the deductible was more than it cost to replace the windshield. In Mass., it was 100% covered,even for a chip. - Stephan!e•CogSc!L!brar!an

I am just tired. Unfortunately, anything I say at this point sounds like (and is taken as) whining and complaining. I should just shut up, suck it up, and just keep grinding until I fall apart -- at which point nobody will care; and people will call me a lazy, uncommitted failure for not being a success and making it look easy in the processes.
Needs right now: food (taking care of that as we speak); sleep (soon); a hug (not getting enough real ones). - Julian from YouFeed
I feel like the whole "just suck it up" advice is a nasty trick 2/3rds of the time. The people who seem to get made to feel that are, half of the time, carrying more than enough of a burden than the people saying it realize. I hope you're able to get some good rest and respite. - Jennifer Dittrich

Ugh... Owwwww! - Jenny H. from Android
I hope they both ask you to come in ASAP. I saw a few people with kidney stones. That looks painful. - Anika
My private urologist answered but ignored the bit about the stone; the VA doctor ignored me completely. - Michael W. May from Flucso
What the hell?! - Spidra Webster
Heh, after writing another message concerning my displeasure at other things, the VA doctor reponded with a consult for a CTurogram. Now awaiting an answer on that second message. - Michael W. May

That's So CAJ!
Well, this could be fairly exciting. Out of the blue, I got an email from a company looking to hire a NOC Manager for their expanding business. And more interestingly, they're looking for someone more process-oriented than technically-oriented. Which is good as the company specializes in SIP Trunking services which I had not heard of before...cont.
...that first email. Basically, they saw my resume and my background of former military and ITIL and thought it'd be worth contacting me. After a decently long initial conversion with their VP of Network Engineering and Operations it appears they're just at the point where they want to grow and need some middle management to assist in keeping the smart guys in line so the VPs can focus on the business side. - That's So CAJ!
So...I'll be heading into their office on Friday to have a chat with them in person. A chat that may last up to two hours. I'm about to become extremely familiar with VoIP and SIP Trunking in the next two days. Because while I don't know exactly what the hell they're doing, I know I can help them do it better. :) - That's So CAJ!
That sounds like a great opportunity for you. Good luck! - Anika from Android
It's yet again another path divergent from my previous IT Management life but I'm actually interested in what they're doing and where they're going. - That's So CAJ!
Sweet. You totally got this. Let me know if you need an assistant. - t-ra needs this place from Android
Good luck! - Jenny H. from Android
HUZZAH, SIR! HUZZAH, I SAY! - MoTO Boychick Devil
Kick ass, caj :) - Brent Schaus from iPhone
awesome. VOIP, SIP - fairly complicated protocols, but fairly easy (imo) to learn the basics, as the data headers are a variant on email-style headers. The signaling and gateway stuff can get ugly underneath (we are, in fact, converting an old telephony model to the internet, so some things are *huh?*). When I was doing more VOIP, I set up a Asterisk box in my house, played with the PBX functionality, and used it to see how SIP operates. - Kevin Johnson
Kevin, I'm reading up on it to at least recognize the acronyms that might get used in the meeting. While the position is more a people/process wrangler, knowing at least how to talk the talk will be a good thing. - That's So CAJ!
Well, that was my first ever three hour interview (four people plus a nickel tour of the place). I think we're all in agreement of what the position is and what I'd be doing if hired. Now to see if they're going to meet my salary requirements. (It's in their range per the COO but it's up to the VP of the section hiring me.) - That's So CAJ!
*crosses fingers* - LB needs a break. from Android
*crosses other people's toes* - Julian
ow, quit it, J. - Marie
Fingers crossed! - Anne Bouey
And the process continues. Now they're asking for professional references. Previous jobs are easy. I haven't exactly mentioned that I'm in talks with another company. While I figured that might, I never exactly got around to it. "Hey boss, you might get a call from another company calling to find out how good I am at my job." Hmm... - That's So CAJ! from Android
Current boss now aware of talks with other company. Contact information passed on. Supremely nervous. Was secretly hoping current company would tempt me with a raise to stay. I've already figured out that number, just in case. - That's So CAJ!
Well, it sure feels weird but I'm turning down the job. Money was decent and training opportunities pretty nice as well but it just wasn't an overall good fit for us right now. - That's So CAJ!
bad fit == good reason to turn it down. - Kevin Johnson

so I am starting a new job soon. Any advice? when was the last time you started a new job? what did you not do that you wish you did?
Last time I started a new job I got pregnant five months later. I don't recommend doing that, but I think you're safe. :-) - laura x from iPhone
Determine your work/life boundaries and goals now (e.g. leave work an time). Doing so has made a huge difference in my current position. - Galadriel C. from Android
Seconding boundaries. Do not try to do ALL THE THINGS right out of the gate. - Julian

Listen more than speak. Ask more than answer. Underpromise and over deliver. (especially during the honeymoon before the new guy halo wears off) - Aaron the Librarian
While institutional culture varies, I want new folks to participate in the conversations that will shape decisions. While it's important to gather a lot of info and figure out who does what, asking smart questions and making suggestions is awesome. We have five new faculty this academic year and I want to hear from them, not just from the people who've been here forever. - kaijsa
Take lots of notes about things you notice that are intriguing, odd, raise questions, etc. You'll only have new eyes for so long, but being able to look back at those notes can help you both remember particulars and slip back into that mindset. - Kirsten from Android
