What I do is seek a contract, then through my own LLC provide a solo 401(k), provide my own healthcare, etc. My benefits won't vanish on someone else's whim, and I have access to all the funds offered by my favorite investment manager. Plus my clients don't have to supply the benefits they would otherwise offer, and only have to pay for the hours I work (and I only have to be around when there is work).

Then again, there's kind of a seller's market for people with multiple computer science degrees, so YMMV. Maybe I wouldn't be saying this if finding contracts were harder.

Which they can do, because they're offtopic (and so is this by the way). I for one welcome this practice, as the worst thing to come out of Beta in my opinion is the deluge of +5 comments about it and the subsequent impossibility of finding the on-topic comments I came here to read in the first place.
