"Yeah, so, I have the concept. I just, like, need someone to code it, that's all."

Uh huh. So, you're good with a 95-5 split, right? Because that's the work distribution we're looking at. (Plus extra if you get underfoot with your big ideas.)

Everybody thinks their ideas are solid gold bars. Most — the majority of mine included — are basically just scrap aluminum.
