Well, I appreciate the feedback.
I meant what I said years ago, when I originally wrote the program about my reason for doing it.
It was a hobby. That's all it was. I had no other motive.
Believe it or not, I even agonized over whether to put the "Make a Donation" button on the program.
When I wrote the free version of Kirby Alarm I was working full time. I worked for the same company for 19 years.
BUT things change, and I found I was not as happy as I used to be. Things were not as satisfying for me anymore so I decided to leave.
I got more enjoyment from Kirby Alarm and working on my own projects than working for someone else.
I would NOT call it a "mood" change.
I am sure there are many things in many people's life that change (including their opinion). I am one of them.
Now I am working for myself, I simply cannot afford to have the free version anymore without financial support.
You said I "won't make a living out out writing freeware". I agree with you. Hence the reason why I have no choice but to make the decision I have.
I am sorry if this disappoints you.
Anyways, have you at least tried the pro version? It is so much better than the free version.
