Amazon associate links

As part of our never ending effort to get the forum to pay for itself, today I added a mod that will add our associate link to any Amazon.com url posted. In theory, we get like 4% of a referred sale. In practice, we have yet to get a penny from Amazon. But then we've never pushed it because it's always been an incredible pain to get a referral link, Also, if someone browses away the link disappears and I know we're still supposed to get a referral for anything they buy in that session, but since our link is no longer in the url I wonder.
Anyway, feel free to post Amazon links and maybe raise some money. I don't mean start spamming; I mean if we're discussing widgets then link to a few quality widgets. Help all the way around.
