Ok, frankly I have no idea how acceptable that is. It's based on a
reasonable rate for hiring an external programmer for a short period
of time here in NL - but it might be cheap (good programmer) or
expensive in other places. It would me about €13.000 per month (making
3 months hard). Anyone know what is realistic? I mean a student would
be far cheaper but frankly I think that's not desirable...
