I am indeed very willing to contribute a few quid to tools/apps I like and find useful, but they have to make it easy for me (a paypal button, at the very least), and not nag me for money.

Although there was one nag that I did appreciate, a few weeks back. I forget which app it was, now, but I think it might have been DexPot, that popped up a dialog pointing out that the app had been installed on the machine for a year (so there was no "phoning home" involved), and that they'd be happy if I wanted to give them a bob or two, but it was perfectly OK if I didn't, as long as I enjoyed using it.

I know it was an app or tool that I use a lot (e.g. DexPot is invaluable on laptops), and I liked the way they asked, so I clicked the paypal button.

If I hadn't liked the way they'd asked, I'd probably be using something else, by now -- good customer service often outweighs good product.
I wanna be a eunuchs developer! Pass me a bread knife!
