Andrei, thanks for doing this! :)

Is kickstarter the only way of pledging? I tried and had to create a 
kickstarter account, which I never needed. When the process then 
required *also* to create an Amazon account I stopped. :(

Can I send a check or pay by PayPal?

Thanks,
Ali

There is a serious reason of getting through some registration 
issues and pledging via kickstarter - project either gets all 
money if it is funded or no at all if it is not (and all pledges 
are returned automatically). And, of course, any other means of 
supporting won't be counted by kickstarter towards target sum.

Yes, this. If we don't break through the limit, nobody is charged a 
dime. It would be more complicated to refund checks etc.

 I happened to have a facebook (alternate sign-in) & amazon 
accounts so it was fairly quick and painless for me.

 I'll look forward to the results of the kickstarter.

We seem to be off to a good start. I've also just added a Facebook ad, 
see it demoed here: http://goo.gl/NrEis

Thanks to all who've contributed, and all others please consider doing 
so. This is a great time to add material support to our passion for this 
project, and to make sure D grows and becomes increasingly significant.

 Already within a day and it's about 25% there. Looks promising.
