it's a free market though. a CLAS contractor is likely to earn about £700 per day. They can get up to £1000.

but this is the nature of the "free cloud". the services that are free at the point of use come without SLAs

but a scary world ... "most crimes come from africa, therefore all africans are criminals" similar problem with home broadband email routing. oh brave new world
