I might get a part time guy (4 hours per day) for 1800 lei (about $500). A top guy from the same university department like I graduated.

Who gave you this present?

Io, I'll do your coding for 1 hour/day at $500 dollar rate. I'm fast and agile.
@DrNo: I'm really considering it, although you're 4x more expensive than my original option.
@Lotti: a friend of mine who, apart from his own business, also works as faculty.

> works as faculty
??? (at the?)

I think old European is "at the".
But hipster English no longer says that, it's faculty, plain and simple :P
I hate that murdering of words.
Words are the oldest tools we all use all the time, and while their meaning can and will change over time, I hate it when discontinuity is created by stupid fashion nitwits.

What Io meant to say is that this guy works as a member of faculty of the university where Io graduated from. We do say that in America: he is a member of university faculty; he is a college professor.
Yes I understand the cause for this error.
But it defies the meaning of the word. The faculty is a grouping of people, part of an institution. The person is an individual who doesn't work as faculty, but on some individual task. The faculty is not there to do that work, it is there to coordinate that work.
And in this case, faculty is the connection between Io and this person, and not something that man does for a living.
So this kind of word transferral has raped and gutted the original meaning.
The fact that a whole population of retards shares that practice doesn't make it any better.

I don't understand what Io said about hipster usage of the English language either. He clearly didn't use correct English grammar in the sentence. However, he isn't a native speaker or lives in a country where English is spoken by many people. Hence, I give him a pass.
I'm more agile than Dr. No.
But I charge more because I'm highly experienced in being agile.

If it's correct to say "he's faculty stuff", is it wrong to have the "stuff" word implicitly? "He's faculty [stuff]". Implicit.
It doesn't occur to me at the moment but I'm sure there are lots of cases with this sort of implicit words in English.
He's 40 [years old].
You're not arguing that the guy is actually some sort of abstract number if I don't specifically mention it's his age I'm talking about.
So I don't think "he's faculty" is anything different.
> "He's faculty [stuff]"
It's the use of 'as' in your sentence that didn't make sense.
Like you can't like throw like in like any word at like any place, unless like your mind is like a mess.

FFS, "as faculty" is simply short for "as a member of the faculty" not much different from "cast X as integer"
'As faculty' usage is pretty common.
Similarly two people 'on staff' could have the following conversation:
q) 'Is he faculty?'.
a) 'Yes, he's in the HR department'.
Consider the load of crap you get from people using this kind of language

Lotti as usual is totally incapable of admitting that he's wrong, his arrogance is more German than Dutch.
Did you parse that crap?
That is what you get from this kind of language use.
