    I'm glad you're clocking a little dough with this.

    I ordered Panzram: A Journal of Murder as a birthday present, and was worried my purchase would end up in a "Road to Popehat: Amazon Edition" post.

  2. Shawn says:

    Just idle curiosity, did my purchase of the book "Towers of Midnight" get credited to you guys?

  3. David says:

    BTW, we're still awaiting the first snowfall, so it's not too late to buy the bleachers first mentioned on Instapundit Day!

  4. Ken says:

    @Shawn: well, I see that somebody bought it; no way to tell if that was you. But thank you.

  5. Shawn says:

    @Ken: Awesome! I do a lot of work on the Amazon mTurk site, and cash in my earnings there for products, so I wasn't sure if that purchase was going to count for you guys or not. I'm glad it did, so I can feel more confident about future items through the search here!

    Any Popehat readers who happen to be audiophiles might want to order the AudioQuest K2 Terminated Speaker Cable through Popehat.

    If I order 7 of them do you get the increase to 6%, or do I need to get 7 separate items? I need a new three-wolf shirt, too.

    Wow, it lubricates and penetrates! Males are obsolete!

    I'm missing the referral link somehow. Where is it? I keep a folder of referral links in my bookmarks for blogs I want to support, and I'd like to add you guys…

  9. Grandy says:

    @supagold – it's on the right hand side, below "Become a fan on facebook". Do you not see it? Is it possible Work is blocking it?

  10. Jess says:

    @M – snicker :-)

    I'm picking up a few things via your link now. For everyone else, Amy Alkon's book "I see rude people" is also available on Amazon. I purchased it a ways back before you set up the link.

    Now I see the added value of the Amazon program. Just as Road to Popehat chronicles how sub-literate perverts find this site, Road to Popehat Breaking Even can chronicle the funny, sad, and awful things people buy on Amazon through the site, accompanied by the same snarky commentary.

  12. Agent T says:

    Whorpsies…. Okay, so I'm using Chrome with Ghostery privacy DoNotTrack add-in, and Amazon Affliates is blocked. The area under the Become a Fan on Facebook is empty. I've unblocked AA for your site. Others may have this problem so just FYR. Next time you post about the Amazon program, you might want to mention that AA can be blocked by privacy add-ons.

  13. Roscoe says:

    A question. I often go to Amazon to browse. If I go to Amazon from your site, does it get credit for anything I buy while I am browsing?

    Also, if anyone from the site buys an electric cooled pony harness with fuel injection, it wasn't me.

  14. Lee says:

    Adblock Plus blocks the Amazon link. To disable in FireFox click tools Adblock plus disable on Popehat.com

  15. AlphaCentauri says:

    @Roscoe: My understanding is that anything you purchase in the next 24 hours will be credited, so long as you don't delete your cookies or visit another affiliate link in the interim.

  16. CourtneyLee says:

    Now I want to buy something outrageously hilarious just to make the Popehat crew laugh.

    I'm glad the affiliate link is working out for you guys. I bought a couple ebooks through it instead of through my Kindle app once I started remembering that taking a moment to go through here helps my favorite blawg.

    You paid MORE than $300 for web hosting for a 2 month period?

    Unless you're doing astonishing levels of traffic, you're probably being taken for a ride. As I stated before, I'll be happy to refer you to another webhost. (one that just happens to value free speech very highly, in fact)

    On a related note, I noticed that you host a lot of PDFs on here. That's probably the back of your traffic. You may want to take a closer look at Amazon S3 for storing some of those assets. It's very cost effective.

    At Amazon, we like to play a game called "I didn't know we sold that". If any of you are wondering what you can buy to both support Popehat and give Ken something to muse over in his aggregate report, may I suggest:

    A supersize container of live ladybugs: http://www.amazon.com/Live-Ladybugs-Hirts-Gardens-Approximately/dp/B0057AZ9JU

    Or possibly a yodelling pickle: http://www.amazon.com/Accoutrements-11761-Yodelling-Pickle/dp/B0010VS078

    Thanks for the reminder. I'm building an unRaid server and will be getting some parts soon. As much as I love Newegg I'll make a point to use Amazon instead.
