Story about why an expert giving a simple fix to a complex problem still deserves to be paid?

I am trying to find/identify a story about a customer with some problem (plumbing maybe?) and calls in an expert to fix it. The expert fixes the problem in some trivial way (turning a valve?) The customer then refuses to pay the expert's fee for such a simple fix. the punchline comes when the expert replies that his fee isn't for turning the valve, it's for knowing *which* valve to turn.

I'd like to become an IT consultant

I am giving serious consideration to setting up as an IT consultant. I'm well proficient in Windows and Mac, Office suites; applications and web technology. In addition, I enjoy talking and fixing computers. I've done some such already, but on a small scale and for people I already knew. My question is: what kind of things should an IT consultant be able to do, what are common requests, what should I charge and how (per job/per hour?). Are there any potential pitfalls? Is it a good idea? Thanks a bunch.

Where to ask HW & Network Questions?

I am searching for a 'one stop shopping' website for hardware and network related questions. I am a computer consultant with almost twenty years experience, so I know my way around the basic issues and, given enough time, can usually dig up and/or figure out anything I'm not familiar with. But I am finding myself with less and less time to spend researching this stuff and would much prefer being able to ask a pro directly. [more inside]
