    I'm not terribly far off from having that stack in my pocket...

    But I'm gonna need 10X that pay.

    Other then assembly, I've atleast worked with all that in the past somewhere along the line 😆

    $600/month though, that's rough.
    I wouldn't get out of bed for $600/day if all that was my day job.

    There are other platforms too, don't those count !

    I must have answered tens of thousands of questions on other sites !

    Also, it doesn't state if your answers have to be correct or not. :-)

    I'm reminded of a company that is a competitor to a product I'm working on.

    They wouldn't hire me because I don't know enough..

    10 years later, they are still looking for someone who can do all the stuff they want.

    Give me a few more years, and I'll be able to build them the exact thing I'm building..

    Only by then, once I finish mine, why would I work for them to and build another !

    I remember one program I wrote that had 100,000+ lines of code, that was sure fun !

    I must do V2 of it sometime..

    I'm reminded folk say to me I should get a degree, and a PHD.

    But if I did that, I'd be past retirement age when I finish !

    Though my uncle who retired was still getting job offers in his 80's, but was told he was too old to move to country X and work there. :-(

    Be glad it doesn't also require TensorFlow and a PhD in microbiology...

    Ok the list of languages is absurd already (for a single website) but that second part of requirements can't be real. The numbers seem so arbitrary and rediculous... 300 repos? Dafuq?

    R is another interesting entry. Matlab is another good language to know for web development.
