    I have purchased $hundreds off Amazon without thinking of the benefit I could bring to SG by coming here first. I just spent $62 on more computer memory for my daughter's new computer off Amazon, and then came here second. Argh!

    Is there a handy/dandy URL that I could put on my desktop and use whenever I want to buy something on Amazon? I do come here a lot, but a desktop URL would be a better solution for me, if it could be made to work.

    I have that as a Bookmark in my main browser. I try to use it whenever I go to Amazon.

    I use Scott's link as my Amazon button on my Mac and iPad. That way any Amazon buys will benefit this website...

    Good God! How on earth do you make a URL over 1/2 MB? :eek:

    Well, I clicked on that link and it brings up a SG page. I saved the Amazon link on that SG page to my desktop, but it does not work. How was I supposed to make a URL of this Amazon link on my desktop, and get it actually to go to Amazon (it apparently does that) and make a workable page (which it does not). The URL in my browser location shows file:///C:/Documents%20and%20Settings/Administrator/Desktop/Amazon.htm rather than executing that 1/2MB URL.

    The title of this thread should be - "Forgive me Scott, for I have sinned!"

    Apparently I no longer understand how to create a desktop shortcut that goes to Amazon.; The browser bookmark works...

    I just dragged and dropped the link from Scott's post(#2) to my desktop and as I recall it was only 1.2k.I deleted it already tho,as I've become very anti amazon of late.
