well Kickstarter recommends you price your goal as low as you can - $10k is 
about the spot where volume component buying  kicks in - not the spot where 
one gets insanely wealthy :-) Mostly I'm treating this as a learning 

You'll notice we have another whole month or so to run, largely this is 
because it's summer holidays here, everything shuts down. I'm off to Hong Kong 
with the family, then Vietnam - my kids both graduated Uni last week, this is 
the last great family vacation .... on Wed I'm going to slip across the border 
into Shenzhen and hit the markets, buy reels all the little components I need.

What I will do is find some sort of stretch goal - we've had other form factors 
suggested - and internal one for servers probably makes the most sense, I also 
knocked up an internal mPCIe - but I suspect most people who have such a slot 
probably already have a wifi card in it, it may not make as much sense
