Please pledge your support and encourage your friends to do the same. Hope to see you in 2013!


Thanks,

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.
