For someone in IT?
We go for around 10x that at the bare minimum.
My employer outsources me for €100,- an hour, but they take quite a share.
I can't ask that much as a freelancer, but even though my hourly rate is less I get to keep it all still netting me more
I've worked with an architect who got €110,- an hour out of the €125,- the company paid for him.
And some idiot manager who produces negative output (he frustrates everyone around him) gets even more than that.
Yeah, I followed your "InThePub" and "BackInThePub" perils!
It's fun for one or two weeks, just like vacation, but nothing beats having a paid job that's fun, where you can learn and contribute to society (or at least a company).
Except maybe having lots of money and never having to work again
This was my first DQ and I loved it.
I played this one because it was one of the best games of 2018 and because I read that this is the best DQ to date.
Took me 130 hours to beat (at 100%), that's what I call your money's worth
At least until Microsoft decides it is not profitable and closes it...
With that logic we'd never be using anything new and we still be writing 0's and 1's, or be stuck in the stone age because this newfangled wheel thing will never last
Anyway, Azure and the cloud have been around for a while now and since so many companies are using it, it solves real problems, and it's Microsoft's biggest cash cow I doubt it's going anywhere soon.
And if it does that means more work for me

The cloud is anything but centralized.
I can put some resources in West Europe, another in America and yet another in Asia.
Or have one resource in multiple regions for disaster failover, etc.
And there's also nothing stopping me from using Azure and AWS, except that I don't know AWS.
BTW, I retired, but after 3 weeks, my wife chased me out off the couch. I'm surprised she put up with me that long, a new record. I figure, that if GVod waNTED ME TO WORK HE'D FIND ME A JOB.
