Will donate for gratitude

A reckoning came to me this morning.

I've been using and advocating Free Software since 1998, and making donations to a number of projects during the last two years, to Freenet, Mandrake, Xiph, LWN, and others (and Nature Institute too), but it did not occur to me to make a donation to GNU, or to MC either, and that's the stuff I use *every day*.

Now, http://donate.fsf.org/ is unreachable at the moment, but I'll keep trying.

Concerning MC, is becoming a Friend of Gnome ( http://www.gnome.org/friends/ ) the right way of doing this? I actually use KDE, and would like the money to go straight to the maintainers of MC (I only saw Pavel Roskin on the mailing list, and by the way, a big thanks to you, Pavel).

(Come to think of it, let's see how to donate to KDE too...)

What am I to do about this?

"I mean, if 10 years from now, when you are doing something quick and
dirty, you suddenly visualize that I am looking over your shoulders
and say to yourself, "Dijkstra would not have liked this", well that
would be enough immortality for me."  E. J. Dijkstra, August 1995
