Calibre is invaluable! Reminds me that I should donate :)

I donated to Calibre this summer - I try to donate something each month to one of the projects I use...

What was a bit sad was that I received no message beyond the payment (paypal) confirmation - not even a generic, automated message of thanks. That's silly of them, as it makes me less likely to re-donate (yes, unfair of me, but these things matter...)

Not unfair at all IMO. I sent them donations and never received an acknowledgement either. And I do recall being slightly miffed myself. At least initially. But there's really no excuse for it. Especially in an era when automated mail responders are so easy to set up...

As you pointed out, these things matter. :)
