I absolutely agree with you. I wrote GypPlay, an MPEG-1 player for the Sega
Dreamcast. I released it as Freeware, but requested that anyone using it send
me just $1 via PayPal. Since it's release in August of 2000, it has been
downloaded over 75,000 times (Yes, 75 THOUSAND times). Wanna know how many $1
PayPal transfers I have received? 3.


And yet, I still get at least a few emails every day from people telling me
that they "love GypPlay!" and want to know if I have anything else for the DC
-- or if I'm releasing a new version. That just absolutely grinds me. You
can't pay $1, but you want know when the next version is coming?? heh. :)

Oh well...
