    The Factotum doesn't work that way. It doesn't matter how many Fonts of Inspiration you take you still only ever have, at 20th level, 8 total SLAs per day.

    To be fair, I'm pretty sure you can apply metamagic to factotum SLAs if you have the feat.
    Applying metamagic is the very tippiest tip of the iceberg when it comes to the optimization options that are available to real spellcasters casting real spells but not to classes like the Factotum. SLAs cannot be subject to metamagic, period. There are the specific feats such as Quicken Spell-like Ability or Empower Spell-like Ability, but they are not only not as good as traditional metamagic, they also don't offer analogs to the more powerful metamagic feats available to real spellcasters. Real spellcasters can also use feats, items, or PrCs to improve any number of their spellcasting attributes that SLA users simply gain no benefit from.
