When? First of every month
Why? Because we owe devs who make the Galaxy Nexus even better every day.
What to do? Give a donation
Think of the pure awesomeness we get from our favorite ROMS, kernels, themes, mods, apps, and other acts of brilliance. Most of the developers give away their work for free, and most get nothing to very little in return. One example.
I think most of us would be happy to pay $50 a year for all of the features they provide. So what I recommend is on the 1st of every month we give a few dollars to our favorite dev of the previous month. Maybe give $2-$5 a month via donations, or buy a donate/developer's apps. Seriously if you cannot afford $2 a month, then how do you have a Gnex?
In the past, I have given $40-50 to a single dev who's ROM I chiefly use. But, this is cheating the kernel, bootloader, app, theme, and other dev's, who I am proud to use their work. I suspect most people either do the same thing, or do not donate at all.
How did I come up with the idea. I'm just reading my emails while flashing, and the shitty place I work gives us a free small cup of coffee for Doctor's Day (March 30th). Tangentially, it reminded me I am long over due to give my favorite kernel provider a few bucks and it really does feel nice when someone says "Thank You" instead of complaining about everything!
So please support your developers!
