Weekly link roundup – Nov. 11-17


With the Unspecified Holiday Season now upon us, you have perhaps wondered, “How can my gift shopping benefit Eric D. Snider?” And the answer lies in the Amazon affiliate program.

Whenever you’re going to buy something from Amazon.com, come here to EricDSnider.com first. Under the “Buy Stuff” tab at the top of the page, choose “Shop on Amazon.com.” You’ll be taken to Amazon’s home page, just like normal — except that now there is code hidden in it that will result in a small commission for me on everything you buy in that session.

It’s not a huge amount of money, but it helps cover the web-hosting fees, and it pays the salaries of the Laotian children who work in my sweatshop. And hey, you’re shopping at Amazon anyway, so why not?

P.S. If you have Amazon bookmarked in your browser, replace the bookmarked URL with this one: http://www.amazon.com/gp/redirect.html?ie=UTF8&location=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.amazon.com%2F&tag=thelandoferic&linkCode=ur2&camp=1789&creative=9325  Then you won’t have to come here first every time.

Now then. Links!
