Just bought a couple birthday presents on amazon. I'll probably end up using it a ton around Christmas.

This has been a steady stream of income now thanks to all who use it. I am tracking down a banner system for the regulars to advertise or run referrals as well.

I also created a Contributor group for people who have donated to remove ads from their view. Its a manual affair but if you want into it and have donated just message me.

Thanks to all who used this last month, we came up pretty close to 3/4 of the hosting bill. To make it easier follow the amazon link above and bookmark that landing page with the NJDevs in the URL. You wont have to come to this site first every time.

Hey DM, I placed a few Amazon orders through your link recently because I am always glad to help out.

But if you don't mind, let me ask you a "dumb" question. I admittedly do not know jack about hosting a website. What's the advantage to hosting this website through your own means -- including ads, member donations, etc. -- rather than using a "free" messageboard hosting service such as ProBoards (www.proboards.com)?

Thanks 95. Well the short answer is our own control, we have used free boards in the past and support was messy. Even proboards would cost us money based on our size. I just checked again and it is 7 dollars per 50K page views which we average around 350K a month so that is 42 bucks a month. They are "free" because they get all the ad revenue.

Do you get a list of the items that people bought, or just the price totals?

The list shows what was bought and the percentage the site will get. There is no identifying info so if nobody says what they bought I can't tell who it was.

Only when they are spent it seems. I moved you to the contributor (ads free) group because of that kindle purchase you had before, thanks.

FYI Amazon's Deal of the Day is Assassin's Creed 3 for XBox or PS3. $33.00 with free super saver shipping. Not too shabby of a deal for a couple month old game that's usually $60. Also the Lightning deals have all been video games so far today also.

I got my son an XBox for Christmas so figured this wasn't a bad deal to add under the tree. Also, means another game for me to play ;)

Did anyone get to take advantage of the Video Game deals yesterday?

What about the banner ads? I'd be interested in putting my business where my heart is!
