    Until you can build a working general purpose reprogrammable computer out of basic components from radio shack, you are not fit to call yourself a programmer in my presence. This is cwhizard, signing off.

    That would be pretty decent money for a guy living in a third-world country, I guess. Here, you could probably make more cash as a dishwasher (hour-for-hour, anyway).

    I don't think any country where $100 would be a decent pay for that project would have internet access, or a language, or the ability to use stone tools.

    Maybe this is due to my lack of knowledge in Excel VBA programming, but the push-relabel algorithm isn't terribly difficult and its a well studied problem.

    If I had (or desired to have) any skills with VBA at all, that probably wouldn't be too difficult of a project.

    At first I thought he was asking for someone to port the ENTIRE BOOST LIBRARY. Now THAT would have been a doozy!

    Well, once it becomes a project, you have to account for the time you spend interacting with the customer, not just the time you actually spend typing code into the computer. I suppose, from an application programmers perspective, I may be a bit jaded by the fact that applications tend to take a lot more time on things other than typing code.
