Submission + - Learning games for a 7-year-old?

lawpoop writes: "My buddy has a precocious 7-year-old who has exhaused the level-building games on the Nickelodeon website. My buddy asked me about games that will help him learn programming or logic skills. I thought of Alice, but its youngest version is targeted at middleschoolers.

What are some great games that will help a 7-year-old build their creativity and logic skills? I'm thinking of stuff along the lines of Lemmings, where you have to come up with creative solutions, using logic. Also, free would be great :)"

Submission + - How do I determine a fair salary? (glassdoor.com) 2

lawpoop writes: After looking at a few salary sites, it seems that I'm very underpaid in my current position. I'm thinking about striking out on the job hunt, but I have a question. Can I trust information from salary.com, glassdoor, and the like? They might have an interest in me thinking I'm underpaid; I'm more likely to use their services ( which doesn't apply to glassdoor, but might be subject to similar gaming). Also, doesn't not having the exact skillset for the job posting affect the salary you ask for? A lot of what I'm seeing these days has specific tools and libraries. If I don't have that specific set, will I be able to justify the salary for a more general job description?

I couldn't submit this ask without a link. Link is not necessary; mods please remove!
