I have been a supporter of Free42 for a number of years. I have donated a modest amount to the cause (not very much, but Thomas was most thankful at the time) and cheerfully paid the modest AppStore costs for Free42 and 42s for iPhone when they first came out.
I have been friendly enough with Thomas over the years to know that Free42 is but a passionate avocation and hardly his main purpose in life. Despite this, he has at times been very responsive to my queries when I have on occasion identified some obscure irregularities.
I have noticed over the past year that Free42 has seemingly gotten less of Thomas' attention. There was a stretch of several months without any revision. I assumed only that the man had gotten busy, and that the project had to take a back seat. As a grateful admirer and fan, I thought that I was obliged to be patient.
That said, I have to say that I bristle at the tone of your query. I suspect that if your bug report is not getting addressed as quickly as you would like, there is nothing at all wrong with Thomas, as you wonder. Rather, he is likely just addressing matters of greater importance.
Free42 is offered to us at little or no cost. I have no trouble cutting the developer some slack if he cannot immediately address my every whim or complaint. I just feel blessed that the great software exists.
