I think you should put up a link somewhere so people can donate if they
would like to do so. There are differences between not asking for money
and quietly providing an avenue for people to throw money at you because
they want to.

I don't exactly practise what I preach, but at least in theory I think
it's a good idea to have some avenue for people to support you. It might
not make much of a difference, but even if all I can do is buy you a cup
of coffee to make that late night debugging session a little less
unpleasant, I'd like to be able do that much.
