The printer hasn't shipped yet, so maybe that was another one someone else bought? I double checked to be sure the correct one was ordered...you freaked me out. :-) Keep an eye on them and see if they disappear. Amazon applied tax yet again. Sometimes they just credit the tax but sometimes they do a return and make it a new order. No idea why they can't get the tax crap figured out.

Ok, I just had our secretary use the link to order a couple of things, let me know if they show...It's a non-taxable business account, so I don't know if referrals will work or not but was worth a shot:

Brother Printer MFC-L8850CDW Wireless Color Laser Printer with Scanner, Copier and Fax

EDS16PR 16-PORT Secure Device Server Rohs

The Printer was shipped by Amazon, but the 16 port serial server was from a partner, so let me know if you get credit for 1 or both or none.

It just makes me wonder if I need to clear my cookies or at least log out/back in to get the reference. Once the reporting system is back, let me know if my purchases went correctly. If they did, I'll get the serial box ordered....it's no rush on my end, there's still a ton of work that needs to get done before I can install it.

I have to order a serial server for work and Amazon has a good price for it, I'll order it with the referral link if we know that it's working now.

Both of my items have shipped, the Rotary Chimney Cleaning System, and the Timberland boots, so they should show up on the referral today. I wasn't sure on the chimney brush since that was backordered, but they must have found one stashed in the warehouse supervisor's office or something.

Ok, I emptied out my cart and closed the window. Then I clicked through the link. I did see the referral code on the inital page, but it disappeared once I went past that page. (I am a prime member, don't know if that matters)

I bought

Rotary Chimney Cleaning System

and

Timberland White Ledge Waterproof Boot,Brown,10 W

let me know if they show up on your referral list

How does that amazon click-through ad work? I have some stuff in my cart that I want to buy, can I click on that link and checkout for Bluesnews to get the credit, or do I have to add it after clicking through there, or do you only get credit if I buy the item advertised?

Is anyone else pulling up the full site with a white instead of blue background in chrome on android? I tried in flashfox and the site comes up correctly, and the Chrome browser on my desktop and on my nexus 7 both work fine, it's just the chrome browser on my phone that's pulling up a white background.

For some reason it won't work with any of my devices, one of which is the 2013 Nexus 7. :-( I wonder what you need to get it to work, the only thing the store page lists is android 2.3.4, which would make me think it works with older devices on up.

Hmm, must be some routing trouble between here and there then. I'm taking a huge hit on my ping about 9 jumps out where Time Warner hands over after the NYC location. I tried a few sites, and it seems like only theirs isn't working for me for some reason. I know it's not a bandwidth issue, no students on campus so we've got an almost empty pipe to play with.

Walking Dead season 2 is tempting at 25% off, but I read a couple of lack-luster reviews about Episode 1. Anyone have any first hand knowledge about the first episode of season 2? Is it really just too much warm up and not enough story?

I'm thinking I may want to wait for the next couple of episodes to come out, I'm sure another 25% or more off will pop up.

I'm not sure what she did wrong. According to her, it was off while she was driving. Why the anger?

Damn, missed that 25% off X Rebirth code. That's what I was waiting for on a purchase....guess I'll have to wait for the next one.

You are never too old to go trick or treating, provided you dress up. I will admit however I find it a bit odd when a pair of teenagers shows up asking for candy but has no younger children they are escorting and are in normal street clothes. I always tell my wife we should have an "apple" bowl so we can offer just fruit to those folks, but she won't let me. Perhaps she is right, I don't really want my car covered in shaving cream.

Just figured I'd mention, I don't give apples to kids who are just out in street clothes begging for candy. I have a candy bar bowl with full size bars for them. They tend to be the ones who are out for mischief, and I've found that full sized candy bars usually mean no TP, eggs, or shaving cream in my yard come the morning. Apples share too much in common with the a baseball....and I value my windows. :-)

That being said, there used to be a woman who gave out candy/caramel apples in my neighborhood when I was a kid. You ALWAYS went to her house first because they were home made and delicious.

Thank god they're finally putting up signs letting me know I can text at rest stops. Such a great way to spend tax dollars in a state flush with cash to waste. I wasn't sure where I could stop...I mean, it said rest stop so I didn't know if I could text there without bothering resting drivers, now I know where I can stop to text! These signs will make a world of difference!

All of the rewards people are paying for are only for the MMO server as well...due to the sheer amount of "paid for" permanently insured ships that must be out there by now, I'm not planning to play on the MMO server, but will look for community run servers. I get that they're saying it's not Pay to Win because you can earn the stuff in game, but if you can run a trade route faster then me on day 1 because of a ship you bought, in a dynamic economy with "pigeon drones" spreading the contract, you have effectively bought your way over me.

I'll most likely play single player until the private server portion is released. I spent the bare minimum to get alpha/beta access. I think I got the Scooty-Puff Jr. as a ship with it too, not sure.

Blue, a site (guessing it's for your ads) called c.berstad.com keeps hanging and not letting me view the actual website. I get the ads and a blank, blue page. I have to refresh a bunch of times for it to let me see the actual page.

I had this same problem yesterday with the same site.

This sounds like the part of Miner Wars I was interested in when I bought in. They over promised on Miner Wars and couldn't deliver everything they wanted to, and haven't done anything to make me think they've learned from that mistake. If it comes out and gets good reviews or has a demo that shows me they have followed through on what they're presenting this time...I'll most likely consider a purchase. Miner Wars hurt their pre-purchase reputation for me, however.
