in reply to My project estimates are based on:

A careful analysis of requirements, a cold-blooded analysis of the team's capabilities (usually, the team is me), and a large safety factor.

And it's never right.

    this thread should never die IMHO.
    i like to charge people based on what i think/estimate their work im doing is worth .
    I try to consciously cut out R&D cost from the estimation cost, coz thats usually 90% of a web project. I put in a key figure like X dollars/local currency per day and then figure out how many days of cold hard labour (minus the creativity) it will take to complete the project.
    Im yet to get a large enterprise level perl project. relishing the thought of that. :D
