I'm in.  I'd put my pledge at the $500-$1000 level.  Do I get a T-shirt
or something?  =)

How about this:  In addition to my $500 base, I'll put up a $500
"challenge".  I'll match (US dollar for US dollar) any new pledges up to
$500.  If you get $500 in new pledges (be honest) I'll give a full $1000.
Refundable if the project craps out, of course.  That includes sudden
trips to the tropics with new-found wealth.  ;-)

Better start a web site with pledge amounts if you haven't already done so
(I'm still catching up on my reading).
