Any advice for older programmers joining startups?

Do you have experience working as - or with - an older programmer in a startup? By "older" I mean beyond 20-something, possibly with a family and obligations that your average fresh-out-of-school coder doesn't have to worry about.

If yes, do you have any advice for people in a similar spot considering joining a startup? What should they keep in mind when deciding whether to join a startup and how can they best navigate the startup culture?

This thread at Slashdot might be of interest, there are some insightful comments in it.
