For 30 years, I was paid to write, maintain, and document software such as Kermit. Now in retirement, I have to pay to do the same thing: Internet access, DNS registration, computers and accessories, home office and utilities. Furthermore, besides continuing development of C-Kermit (the Kermit software for Linux, Mac OS X, FreeBSD, NetBSD, etc) and maintenance of the Open Source Kermit website, I've also been working since 2013 on a project to uncover the deeply hidden history FDR's New Deal in New York City 1933-43, a vast project involving travel, photography, cameras, commercial software (e.g.Photoshop), and research; the latter requiring purchase of books, subscriptions to newpaper archives, etc. I'm also responsible for a number of other popular Internet resources — history of computing, 1968 student uprising, US Army bases in postwar Germany, international postal addressing, etc — see my home page for a list and links.

If you find any of this material useful, your contribution will not only help me to continue, but also give me some indication of the level of interest in these projects. If an unexpectedly large amount of money comes in, it could go towards paying a Windows programmer to complete the long-delayed release of Kermit 95 for Microsoft Windows as free software (I can't do it myself because I'm not a Windows programmer).

Donations are via PayPal. I don't track them; none of your information comes to me. The screenshots below show the donation steps. In the second or third step you can add a note if you wish, indicating which project you are donating towards, e.g. Kermit or New Deal. PayPal says "Donate to fdc@columbia.edu" because that's my PayPal ID.
