you need talk about too much.1. You are working there, you need have good relationship with your boss. if you done well, he may give you more good works. Also good reference.2. On win98, Access and Delphi is good enough and enough. Sounds like pretty easy case, you won't take too much time. 3. If he can give you 10% benifit. 4. If he wants update later, ask more. So, I think $500-1500 is ok, you can ask 1500, then drop down a little bit, then drop more and ask 10%. But remember you need paper. I got poor experience for paper. Must have paper. Special for HongKong people.
