That'll be php cowboys who know a bit of perl cgi charging 15/hour
while professionals charge up to 500/day, and all those banking
contracts skewing the stats a bit.

I'm happy to say that my rates are 200 to 350 a day depending on
location, length of contract and how much I want to do it, so working
from home on an interesting project with people I like for 12 months
is closer to 200, while working with jumped up barrow boys in the city
on a short term contract would obviously be at the top end and
anything else comes inbetween.
