Congratulations, Rachel! That's got to be a huge relief (and its own kind of stress, but hopefully mostly relief).

I feel like someone besides me should be telling you this, but unless you're prepared to turn down the job flat, always start work as soon as they'll let you. If they want you to start sooner than previously discussed, you should reflexively say yes unless it is simply not possible.

Good luck.

Ok, so I figured a Jewish non profit would never actually want you to start on a Friday and I was right. I talked to my new boss and I start this upcoming Monday, which is far, far less stressful and yay for getting a paycheck soon.

Thank you for the kind words.

Roku is releasing a new lineup, which has two units at the top of the range that do HDR decoding, and all the new ones get rid of the whiny fan that the Roku4 had. Been waiting for an HDR-compatible Roku, so we'll be getting one right away.
