Then I may not know what you are asking anymore all of a sudden, for that very reason -

to me, a walk in the park is something that may last hours or just a few minutes,
depending on the current mood of a person, spare time, the number of trees, sportsmanship,
and of course the beauty of the scenery. And last-not-least knowledge of the particular
place, especially when there are very many trees :-)


Seriously: 44 hours is not much time for a software project -
it may work if the project is unusually small, and the tasks are all routine activities.
Even then, charging only 44 hours would not be enough because "reusability" must pay off
too, or senior-programmer-ship if that expression works in English.
