This sounds like a great opportunity that comes at a small cost.
Keep in mind that joining a startup is something that will be rewarding on a couple of levels. You can help guide the technical vision, get to know a good group of people working together on something great.
You also have to keep your feet on the ground. Don't let common sense be overwhelmed by your local Reality Distortion Field. Don't let your mind wander off about what colour of Lamborghini you're going to buy with your stock options.
And I hope you left your previous company on good terms -- you never know when you'll meet up with that organization or those people again. The world is a surprisingly small place.

Yeah, and guess what happens to the person ranked terrible? Here's one of the replies:
It seems this would be a simple job for a 3D printer -- 1) get the person's fingerprint; 2) print it out as a 3D object; 3) ??? 4) profit!!

It was Fall 1973 at MacDonald High School in the West Island, and we Grade 10s had access to a PSBGM  system over a 110 baud modem.

You could also sign up for time after school, and the fights for the time slots were sometimes violent. (You know you're a geek when
The first major code I actually saw written on this platform was a program that my Dad wrote, to see how the distribution of blood types changed over generations. He's an actuary, so being able to simulate something was fascinating for him. Conway's Game of Life (as first seen in the pages of Scientific American) was also fascinating to him.
Part of my early fascination in programming was reading through the entire BASIC manual, trying to understand all of the available syntax. Thus, when our assignment was to format our output, I used an IMAGE statement (PRINT USING

I have both Firefox and Chrome open in multiple desktops. Each window has 4-8 tabs open, except for this one which has just Slashdot, which I read during lunch. After I've caught up here, I'll move on to Google News, Perlmonks, and Feedly.org if I have time.
Either the site's slashdotted already (after twelve minutes, on a Sunday afternoon?), or it's The Most Boring Movie Ever Made.
