In 2021 I started keeping track of “thank you” emails and donations that I received for my open source software. This page is a compilation of that feedback. It’s a nice place I can turn to when I’m not feeling motivated, or when I need a pick-me-up.

Donations and thank you emails from the community


Thank you email from Ilona Chodnicka for my Windows Scheduled Tasks Azure DevOps Extension 😊

Hello Daniel

I used your Windows scheduled tasks extension for Azure DevOps at Capstone Logistics in the US, way back when, and I liked it very much.

I’m about to use it again at Cymax - we are in Vancouver, Canada. I’m very happy that it’s actively maintained.

My manager is definitely intrigued as currently all of our scheduled tasks are set up by hand.

I’m looking forward to setting it all up for us via a pipeline and I thank you (again) for your great work.

Just to say thanks – what an excellent tool your Path Length Checker is. We are, at long last, starting to sort out our extensive collection of digital images and the Checker is most helpful!

Good boy You made a really useful program


Hi Daniel,

As a notorious ‘meeting misser’ due to not paying enough attention to my calendar and missing notifications from Outlook itself (cause they were not enough ‘in my face’) I just wanted to say a big thank you for creating the “Notify When Microsoft Outlook Reminder Window Is Open”. Its really the type of reminder I need to be sure I don’t miss the next meeting :) I donated you a ‘toonie’, so enjoy your next coffee, it’s on me ;)

Regards, Erik

Hi Daniel! I came across your blog post about saving object data to a binary file in c# while I was searching for an easy way to properly save instances of objects in c# for a MonoGame project I’ve been working on for a while, and it’s been incredibly helpful! I just wanted to send out a thank you for putting that tool out there!

Much love from PEI, Canada,

D’Anyil (Yes, pronounced the same as your name!)
