I was in the right place at the right time. I did beta testing for a alarm panel maker back in the 80's. My contact started his own company making and marketing video camera componets that go in a computer. We stayed in touch and I tested a lot of his products. His partner screwed him so the company folded rather quickly. So he jumped in the computer craze. Now he is a higher up for a computer company and I get things sent to me and a check for what my fee is. It's sporadic. It may be 6 months before the UPS guy drops some thing off to me.
Bottom line is I just happen to know some one. I've known this guy for many years and we have grown to trust each others judgement.
