Personally I hate PayPal because I always seem to have trouble with my credit card(s) and then get a lot of junk mail afterwards from PayPal.
Still I did manage to donate.
And will do so again.
Also PayPal seems so anonymous. Not sure why.
What I can't understand is why one of the ereader manufacturers does not distribute calibre with the device with a small library. Kind of like Nero with DVD writers. A licensing fee would perhaps provide a steady income for years.
While I like the personal feel of communicating with the calibre developer and his development team, and this might disapear if they became moderately wealthy I think a living is not enough for such a great piece of software

Well considering that before calibre took over my life, I was on the road to becoming a physicist (typically earning about $12k a year in India), money has never been a very important consideration for me.
The way I see it, as long as I can do something I love, the money needs to only be enough to live.
Don't get me wrong, if all of calibre's users decided to donate and make me a millionaire, I would be thrilled, but if not, no big deal.

I have donated but I can't get the Heart Icon to go away. Why!
The info I found on the Internet makes no sense.
Please help. I can't use the program with the Heart still in the toolbar.
