Donation Coder Fever
« on: March 01, 2011, 04:45:03 PM »
DC Fever - with apologies to John Masefield

I must go down to DC again, to hassle that mouser guy,
For all I ask is a donation app and a license to install it by,
And the forum's chat and the gossip lets me know what's shaking,
And a regular letter in my email with all the news that's breaking.

I must go down to DC again, to fix my buggy app
there's a forum post a-waiting: "error found, please fix asap"
And all I ask is a quiet day with the phone left off the hook,
but noooo I've gotta release new code for some ungrateful schnook.

I must go down to DC again, to the vagrant coding life,
To the Java way and the Delphi way, where the bugs give me so much strife,
And all I ask is a couple of bucks from a fellow Donation Coder,
So I can buy a myself a cup of coffee, or maybe a can of soda.

(here's the 'riginal: Sea Fever)

So you like Masefield, eh?

Witty British coder with a salt-caked quick snack,
Biting through the pizza in the long March nights,
Has a program with awe specs,
Can't fail, (big head?)
Such good, donationware, that all delights.

Hey! Hey! We work hard to maintain our "low-brow" reputation! Don’t go and ruin it for us barbarians!   :P

i'd be happy to work on such a book - would take a while to complete; little time being available my side, if nothing else.
