Well.. I guess I could, however testing here is much more expensive that what 
it would be at Relevantive.  Reimbursements usually start at $50USD and 
recruiting usually costs $50USD a head on top of that.  Labs are also 
expensive to rent.  Luckily my company has a portable lab which I plan to 
use.  Since this is an early test I would prefer to save the money in a good 
recruit and get what I can.
