On a salaried basis, your rate might be more like $40 an hour. But of course when you take a "perm" job, you have to consider the entire benefits package, including health care, instead of simply calculating an hourly rate. You say you are "bored with production support," and I can totally understand that, but you'll want to keep that line to yourself during interviews. :) You can spin this into your desire to seek challenging projects without too much problem. Just don't downgrade your current experience too much, you need to try to package your current role as a good building block for your skills and not just a dead end.
