Developing, testing and maintaining software is a costly hobby. Especially if a forum is used to inform and support people.
So I have a suggestion (the first in a long row…)

I don't know how many of you still smoke? (I don't, I quit 19 years ago).
Anyway, if those who do, smoke each day one (1) less cigarette, well, by the end of the month you saved a pack of cigs. Now I don't have any idea how much a pack costs these days (depends on the country I guess) but I'm pretty sure it's more than 5 bucks.

Now, why don't you consider spending this $5 to a good use, and donate it to Tim and his moOde team.
Every bit helps. And even if you do this every month, you won't feel it in your wallet, but it will certainly help out Tim.

OK, that's all for now. Until I come up with another idea.
If you have some, don't hesitate to post them here.

Anybody followed this suggestion?
If not, pity, not for moOde, but for yours and everybody else's health

I can't comment on the US as I am in the UK, but there has been enough education over the years to encourage people to stop smoking, our NHS issue free advice, nicotine patches & sprays to anyone who wants them, smoking is banned in workplaces (incl. outdoor areas) with the exception of outdoor smoking shelters, no smoking is allowed in restaurants, bars, public transport etc.  You can't smoke in the car with minors due to passive smoking.
The tax on a pack of 20 makes it over £11 a pack now on average I believe.

At 20 a day that's the equivalent of a Chord Mojo a month.

Anyway, $5 a month is the least people can give & most of us with this hobby can afford that I would suggest.

That said, hardware suppliers could probably do more.  I actually emailed ALLO to ask if they donated to projects like MoOde, they didn't reply so I won't buy their DACs.
