Re: Linking for different countries...

What I did (as an experiment) with my blog's Amazon search tool is to determine the visitor's country and display one of three different Amazon links (.com, .ca, 26 countries that fall into the UK branch gets the UK link, visitors from Canada get the .ca link, and the rest of the world gets .com (for now).

Yes, I third the link. I'll wait for a couple of days and check back before I order it...

re: the link to i link to .ca, then i have to link to,, etc, etc. i'll stick to the .com for my affiliate membership, but obviously you can/should use the retailer that's most convenient for you, amazon or otherwise. (it's interesting...the amazon affiliate link actually earns me more per book than my royalty! hehe...note to self: book writing not working as get-rich-quick scheme ;)

thanks for the orders guys. i hope/believe the book is worth it...

Keep up the good work Colin, along with the gravity-defying mohawk. ;)
