Last year we got between $500 and $1000 per quarter from them.

I haven't been following the payments this year, but I would hope
it's at least as much.

Also, hopefully there wasn't some extra paperwork or something that
we needed to fill out to continue getting the payments. :) Do you know
anything to indicate that we're in that situation?

Jon Selon (jon at tp) is the best person to ask. I've cc'ed him.

Right -- I think we're hesitant to encourage people to go down the
path of signing up for random toolbars and addons and stuff. :)
