pricing is a mystery -do you charge for your sunk costs or for the user

selling software is magic - volume is more interesting than high margins, as
the product youre selling can be consumed by an unlimited amount of users.

i think you dont have to be ashamed or explain yourself. on contrary, you
are doing smart dog a favour:

1. by mobilising NTLK they are getting as much publicity as they can get in
the appropriate target group;
2. if the deal will go through, smartdog will experience a positive cash
flow that would probably never happen otherwise. this money can be used for
further dev and enhancement and result in a more expensive later version.
(we still havent got ircomm, remember?)

im in - definitly. for $10-20, it is worth it. for ircomm i could consider
an upgrade fee.
