You may have noticed the reappearance of the Links menu bar at the right of the page, after being absent since the new design went online. At the moment there are just two buttons there, and I intend to keep that number as small as possible, to keep page load times down. The first link, to online store Amazon.com, should of course be familiar. Ever since TrekToday started, I've been linking to Amazon for new Trek product announcements, and a few weeks ago I figured I might as well sign up to be an actual affiliate of them, then. Of course this won't in any way affect my editorial independence, and news will still remain exactly the way it was, should you be worried about that.
The other link is to Webdog, a program tracking updates to gaming sites, with TrekToday being one of the few sites not exclusively dedicated to gaming which is being tracked by Webdog. Webdog used to provide automatic links to .plan updates of the 'Voyager: Elite Force' developers for TrekToday a few months ago, but personally I find the site tracking service a bit more usual. You can download the program from their site, be sure to check it out!
