"What the market will bear". The traditional approach is to take your
anual salary and divide by 1000 to come up with an hourly. This assumes
a net consulting overhead of 100% -- figuring slack time, taxes,
administrative expenses, etc., it's a relatively good fit. Tweak to
your particular situation and circumstances. If you're getting too many
assignments, consider a higher rate, too few, lower.
