On a special section of our forum, anyone can post an idea for a small custom utility/program.

To celebrate the fundraiser, DC member skwire has released a new application: sWeather.
But before I describe sWeather, I need to say a little bit more about Skwire. Over the last year he has released an absolutely astounding number of brand new freeware programs over the last year - almost all in response to requests from everyday people who have stopped by and posted on the DonationCoder.com Coding Snacks Request board. He's almost threatening to break the record for releases by DC member Skrommel. It's great fun to watch Skwire create new tools based on user requests.
Ok back to the new app, sWeather. It's a tray-based weather tool. There are a few of these kinds of tools around, some good, some bad. sWeather is nice because it looks great while being pretty minimalist, and does all of the important things well. There are tray icons for weather condition and temperature, and it's easy to switch quickly between locations and perform update checks. Overall a very sweet tool.
Important Note: During the fundraiser we ask people to make new donations into the site. And these donations help cover site hosting costs and other expenses. But we also have a system we created (called DonationCredits) in order to let people direct their donations to specific members on the site who they would like to show support to. The best thing you could do with your donation is actually to send your donation credits out to specific people on the site like Skwire, whose work you want to support - as a way of letting them know that their work is appreciated. So don't just donate, spread the love a little by sending your donation out to people on the site like skwire. Actually skwire has his own direct paypal donation button on his website, and that would also be a great way to let him know he is appreciated.
