    Default After 15 years of contracting...

    After 15 years of contracting (off and on), I've made a sale of a product.

    I started working through my company last year with a small consultancy. The agreement is that any software I develop for them, I get 15% of any sales. I also get 15% of the yearly support license. We've just sold the first license for a six figure sum (Swiss francs, and no, there are no leading zeros!).

    We've got another two large companies interested in the same product.

    I'm quite pleased.
    Down with racism. Long live miscegenation!
