3. I could absolutely not afford to hire another developer(s) for any substantial amount of time. I work for LT for the cost of my living, meaning essentially free labor (with, you know, the promise of future riches ). Developers, on the other hand, are not cheap.
Is it bad Netiquette to quote oneself from said thread ?

This is probably one of the main reason that he is loosing years of his youth to find a solution to industry-standard problems by trial-and-error. At the very least he should have a "board" of (experienced) people to discuss concept, plans, issues and schedule if he wants to implement alone. Such people are a dime a dozen on this forum who would willingly help for free, so cost and availability is not a factor.
And this statement remains valid even recognizing his huge talent - just nobody can do such project efficiently alone.
I should add that I am not counting myself in the experienced people in software development that could help as a first choice (while I do know about project management, it is in chemical industry and my programming days are more than a decade past ).
