Even if it were thousands, giving someone money before something done is an investments, and investments can go bad. Especially if it's just a few thousand, what did you expect, that he'd continue to slave away at the project for the few bucks you gave him?

Perhaps, but I still hold myself accountable even under the circumstances mentioned above. If any of the original Genesis backers are reading this and want their money back, please let me know and I will gladly return it, with interest (just let me know the email address or alias you donated under and I have a record of the amount you gave (thankfully Paypal keeps history that far back)).
