Is it my fault that I didn't evaluate properly? Snark. Is it the coder's fault that they advertise blah blah that they can do the job and deliver the deliverables then crap out?  I did evaluate and evaluate and evaluate numerous coders and they were generally all the same. What? I'm a stupid moran because I can't cystal ball gaze? And no. You don't deserve $100 an hour. That's your problem. Your opinion of yourself.

nice rant. Now then - is it our fault that you picked a shop that couldn't
do what you want? How did you select them, evaluate them?

we're entitled to (and get) our approx $100 per hour because we have years
of business experience, because we can tell clients when their ideas won't
work - and suggest new ideas that will, because we turn out good quality
code on time and on budget.

and we're no different to hundreds - probably thousands - of development
companies; if you engaged the wrong one(s), then your selection process is
