how about a donation to locate 3.0?
« on: August 07, 2006, 11:04:00 AM »
Hi,

I was thinking that the developer of locate (it is a solo operation!) has managed to do something that big guys like Microsoft didn't: get HD indexing right.

I remember that here at DONATION CODER we donated something like $100 to autohotkey. I think a similar action (maybe smaller? depends on the # of users) would be good for locate, as it has many admirers in this site. I'd hate seeing M$ buying and cancelling that project (as could be the case with systernals).

What do you think?

locate is a very impressive program that has been talked about a lot on our forum, and well worth a try:

homepage:  http://locate32.webhop.org/

the author even posted here on our forum: http://www.donationc...85.msg29567#msg29567

so you can:

does he have another donation method?

i do think though, speaking only for myself, that this is not really something to set up a special "fund" for.  autohotkey was special because skrommel and others were using that tool to make coding snacks and stuff, so it was a case where people were benefiting from autohotkey while not actually being direct users of it.

I'd be willing to donate a somewhat sizeable amount myself if he'd work on what's being discussed over here: http://www.donationc...x.php?topic=4617.new
