I have found very few companies willing to permit telecommuting
(or off-site contracting in my case).

I think(g) that their reluctance will change soon (at least as far as off-site
contracting is concerned). The IRS is planning to crack down significantly on
employers who keep only "contract" employees so they (the employers) don't have
to have to pay benefits. How the IRS is doing that is to more narrowly define
who is an employee. I have a list of the twenty points they look at, if anyone
is interested in me typing them up and posting them. The gist is, one of the
biggies the IRS looks at is whether the employee/contractor is on or off site.
Off site a majority of the time, in the mind(?) of the IRS, equals "contractor",
onsite=employee. In fact, most of my contracting clients INSIST that I work
