  • Too hectic for your family oriented life style? Maybe you aren't cut out for this.

    Or have a bunch of kids, homeschool them, and train the ones who are interested to be programmers. :)

    • I have to admit, while I like Ingy, I found that comment of his to be offensive. There's an implication that if someone has a family and wants to spend time with them, they shouldn't be doing open source. That's probably not what Ingy meant, but that's what I read.

        Hmm, I see your point. I could have found it sort of offensive, but I took it mostly as a statement that if you became really committed to a project, your family time might suffer, and that if you were a committed family man, you might want to rethink your project goals.
