If that's your basis, then multiply times 1.4 to 1.6 just to take care 
of your extra taxes and loss of benifits (self employemnt taxes are a 
tremendous hassle).

If you can swing it, get an agreement to be paid based on milestones. 
If it's really a three week job, maybe that means 2 payments based on 
deliverables that you turn over to them.

But really, Claude, payment-in-kind might make for a much more 
interesting story at the next BUUG meeting :-)
