So far it's great. The older kids help care for the younger kids. We have built in baby sitters. They always have friends to play with. The household chores get spread out ("Many hands make light work"). And, people assume if it costs X to raise 1 child then it must cost X*n (n=7 in our case) to raise more than one child. But that simply isn't true. Toys, clothes, etc. get handed down and recycled. If you make your own meals instead of eating out then it doesn't require that much more food to feed 9 than say 4 (the young ones eat less, often times some of them will be picky eaters, etc.). Plus when it's game night we have plenty of people to compete against
An opposite anecdote. My wife and I have 7 children, and people are always commenting on how young we look (most say we look about 10 years younger than we are) and are shocked when they find out we have any children, much less 7. Of course, other than the children themselves we don't have too much stress. I have a fantastic well paying job, we have great health insurance, we have little to no debt, we live in a great community in the beautiful Pacific Northwest, etc.
This is San Fran - surely it must be a hippie wanting all those silicon valley weenies to get back to nature.
"Google calling on developers to show sensitivity to evens". Odds need sensitivity too.
We need an Ask Slashdot: "Now that Slashdot sucks, what site have you moved to?"
I tried it, but it was such a pain to get working on OSX and iOS that I think I eventually gave up. It seems like a great solution if you are Windows centric.
That's great advice. Except I have 6 computers in three locations that I use on a daily basis. Putting it on a stick doesn't really work since I'm really good at losing things. Before using an online password manager I used the same 7 character password for everything. Now my password manager has 100s of passwords, allof which are unique and most of which are 30+ characters long. I really don't know what I would do without it.
>that fetch the same data through REST But, wouldn't you need something like PHP to hit the database and create JSON data to return to the REST call?
Uh yeah. I've worked for one for the past 15 years. I'm just describing my current job situation.
No, but Fortune 100 companies tend to have deep pockets so that expensing a $100 developer fee is inconsequential.
My recommendation is to find a job with a fortune 100 company.
Easy. "Me: Hey Boss, I'm expensing $100. Boss: Sure, whatever." Though, in reality I don't actually run things by my boss before expensing them. But, if I did, this is the response I would get.
