Please Feed Duotrope

Duotrope.com is one of the best resources out there for writers, with a very comprehensive list of publications sortable by a variety of qualifiers including the lengths of works they accept, their pay rates, what medium they print in, whether they accept electronic submissions, their response times, and so on. It's updated frequently, it has suplimental features like interviews, and it allows you to maintain a bank of your own stories which tracks where they have gone, how long they've been there, and how it relates to that magazine's average response time.

And it does all this for free.

It does, however, ask you for donations to cover the cost of bandwidth and man hours. Duotrope hasn't met their goal on donations since December of last year. I know most of us don't have much in the way of spare cash, but this is a really wonderful service that shouldn't disappear from the face of the web.
