I thought about this, and remembered something about my own software, that in a way really bothers me about the whole idea of freeware/donationware and the attitudes of most software users when it comes to making a donation...
If I had $1 for every time someone downloaded one of my applications, I wouldn't have a worry in this world when it came to being able to pay my bills.
If skrommel had $1 for each time someone downloaded one of his apps, he would be richer than Bill Gates!
While we can't possibly all make up for the non-donated $1's, we can all donate a $1 now, and let him know how we feel about his hard work. A dollar isn't a lot...we can all afford that, and the message of appreciation that goes with it increases it's value, dramatically.
I know not everyone will donate, but if every member of this forum did, he would have a gift of $114,272.00 (at the time of this post), and that is no small change.
It would more than enough to pay for his transportation to the Scandinavian gathering...and singing nuns...and enough chocolate Cody coins to make him sick.
So let's bomb him with dollars and tell him how we feel! (my $1 and my message has been sent, your turn now)
