Sorry I didn't; I was busy and didn't get to it yet.  You probably wouldn't
have liked my answer anyway. :-p  I like this project to see how you do things,
but I'm not all that interested in the actual result.  (And therefore, I don't
feel like spending a lot of money on it.)

I'm not surprised, and I think this list is filled with the same type of
people.  I have no idea where to find investors; I try to avoid those kind of
people when I can. :-p

I agree that a more polished version would greatly help such a campaign.  I
have no ideas about how to get there...

Thanks,
