Since she announced it the Guardian has respected Chelsea Manning's wishes to be referred to by her new forename: the cited article seems to have slipped through the net !

Then my goal is to thwart your retirement plan. I will contract a low-wage programmer from a yet-to-be-determined developing country...

Your plan-to-thwart contains a potential bug.
If, say, the US and Chinese economies continue for the next 25 years on their current trajectories it is quite possible that the "low-wage programmer" you speak of will live in the US, and hence the GP may get your contract !
