"Dude you work on servers at your job, right? I'll give you $300 to take the day off work and finish up what I've been working on for a month for me.

Practically, a deadline is an estimate, or so all my experience have turned out.

I'm not sure how much "tech-time" you could get for that. Does anyone here have experience with what rates a tech charges?
Also, isn't it made more complicated with the tech first having to be familiarized with the hardware and software so he or she knows what he has to work with?
