comment What do you do to make the client understand that requirements not mentioned in contract should be charged separately?
I charge hourly now, but when I did bid-based projects I would send a semi-detailed list of the aspects I would address and that any additional requests would be addressed seperately. Also, ask for 25 to 50% up front if you can get it. If the client is good or has a good track record, keep them. If the client is a "jerk" or has a poor track record, move on while the loss is minimal. However, for the final decision to move forward with this client or leave them, that's a decision best left to your own conclusion. Good luck!

comment What does Google or Microsoft get by hosting JS files on their Content Delivery Networks (CDN)?
You have to factor in that they use their CDNs to host all their widely used files. This means that every file hosted splits the gross cost of having those servers making each file cost pennies on the dollar compared to the revenue they must recieve.
