We all have at least one open source project that we can't live without on a daily basis. That is why I'm calling for October 16th to be the Worldwide Donate to Open Source Day. $2, $5, $10, $25, $100 doesn't matter. Just go to their website try to find a donation link. Most just go to a paypal account. Give something to show all the great developers out there that their time is appreciated. If you work for a corporation try and talk your boss into making a donation on behalf of the company. It will help the developers wallet and clout.

Personally, the one thing I can't live without anymore is the "firebug" firefox extension from Joe Hewitt. With the integrated javascript debugger and ajax profiler it's become one of my favorite tools.

What can't you live without?
