omast writes "It appears that Peter Tattam, creator of Trumpet Winsock, got very little for this piece of software. For those of you who do not remember — or did not need it because were already outside the MS Windows world — Trumpet Winsock was a shareware program that provided TCP/IP functionality to Windows machines back in 1994-1995.

According to the article, Tattam made very little money from the program as it was widely distributed but rarely paid for."
Never tell people how to do things. Tell them WHAT to do and they will
surprise you with their ingenuity.
