So far, I am totally unimpressed.

That's not 1 1M LOC+ program. That's just putting together a bunch of tools on some systems. Tool jockeys are not at all in the same league as programmers.

A website! ROFLMAO! Try a real application. But you probably don't know what one is.

Over 40 years of programming experience, and 18 years as an independent consultant. My first programming was Fortran II on an IBM 1401 back in 1967.
