[Timothy J. Allen] "I learned my lesson about charging "per hour" very early in my career."

Me too Tim! And, I never liked keeping track of hours and minutes, etc. anyway, that's a whole job unto itself.

[Timothy J. Allen] "I didn't know they made that change in CA. Thanks for the update."

Yep, I too was surprised when I found about it, as I had been billing ten straight automatically for decades. The CA legislature apparently woke up to the fact sometime back, finally acknowledging that the old ten-hour standard had been affording preferential treatment to the studios over the rights of labor for years. It's logical when you think about it; the film/TV industry is really no different than any other industry.
