While it seems time-saving, I don't think putting all your eggs in one basket is a good idea when it comes to interviewing. If you bomb the interview (it can happen to great engineers), then you've effectively shut yourself out of every YC company? I'd much rather interview 5 times and be 99% sure I'll get one, than go all or nothing and potentially get screwed.

Yep, that's him, given his profile in HN and http://the-witness.net/news/

150k stock yearly? Options or straight stock? Figure out their actual (yearly) value first.

I get an "over quota" error :(

Now I'm getting it ;(

It seems to be running on Google App Engine. Its probably hitting the daily budget.

note to self: never, ever run anything on Google App Engine.

It's more like "set your budgets accordingly". I run a couple sites there and only once I hit one quota limit for a site I did not set a budget and that exceeded the free tier bandwidth limit. I like it specially for students because it encourages good practices.

How does this reconcile the advice that eating more often (say, 6 times a day) but with smaller portions helps increase metabolic rate and thus helps with weight loss?

I think that's just conventional wisdom/wishful-thinking propagated forward (like so much dietary advice): http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19943985 (cited in http://www.nytimes.com/2010/03/23/health/23really.html).

Try the Santa Teresa 1796. Highly recommended and still my favorite after many years. I'm biased though, since it's Venezuelan (and I am too).

Hate it when articles don't define their acronyms.

PAN = primary account number.

EMV = Europay, MasterCard, Visa. http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/EMV

Given the target audience of that blog, those seem to be perfectly reasonable things to leave out. I mean, do you expect programming blogs to define 'API'?

The amount a landlord should be willing to pay will be higher than this amount if your rent is substantially below the market rate, and lower if it’s only a little below the market rate.

...Why? I don't see how that conclusion follows from the data. The data only compared occupied vs unoccupied rent-controlled home sale prices. Nothing took into account how under-market said rents were. Unless I missed something...

>> And one could make the argument that the sample of men was also biased--towards men who liked tech.

Sure. I think the implicit assumption is that "men in tech" is a more representative sample of "men" than "women in tech" is for "women".
