fog creek broken links

Evey link contained within "blockquotes" in the center column of http://www.fogcreek.com/CityDesk/index.html returns the following:

'url' argument was invalid. Please see the affiliate program for instructions on how to use this server. Note: redirects can only go to servers under fog creek's control.

Why?

Either they fixed it, or not.... but it seems to work for me now.

What browser are you using?

It looks like they check that the referrer is a Fog Creek server before allowing the redirect and give that message if it isn't.  I'm guessing you're using a browser or some sort of privacy software that's not filling in the referrer.

Somebody :re " I'm guessing you're using a browser or some sort of privacy software that's not filling in the referrer. "

Yes, you are correct ... I do have a "blocker" active and I did not include fogcreek.com in my controlled filter list. Now that you have turned the light switch on for me -- it works! :-)

Sorry fog creek ... I should have been much smarter and much more alert to my -- prevent attack from whomever is attempting to hack into my domain.  :-)
