I must have been asleep at the wheel - I didn't realize the original post was July 06 - I guess I picked up on it after your last update.

I agree with dkbd1581 on the charging part. What your time away from home & family is worth. Long ago when I was in school one of my instructors wisely shared how important it was to charge everyone for your time or you will find yourself doing more work for free. They will tell two friends and they will each tell two "I know this guy..."

"Bill" is cheap and next time he asks you for a favor ask for a retainer fee first. Good job getting it all straightened around & saving him the $3000, next time we know he won't be so lucky.
