Fog Creek Affiliate Program

Is the Fog Creek Affiliate program still running? http://www.fogcreek.com/Affiliates.html

I can't find the sign up link on the page anywhere.

Joel mentioned a while back that he was rethinking his strategy, and I believe he said he would get rid of the affiliate program, but still honor anyone who was in it already. I think.

But a quick peek at the source code turns up this:

Wait, someone scrounged a DEAD LINK to a page, and you're bitching because this page that NOBODY IS SUPPOSED TO EVER BE ABLE TO GO TO happens to be broken?

What a flaming asshole you are.

The administrative effort wasn't worth the benefit, so we stopped accepting new signups.

maybe i'm a flaming asshole however it doesn't change my view that on the *live* online order form if I enter the letter A into the quantity field (the "how many" column) then i got a nice error which is clearly that somebody didn't test correctly that page.

and we all know that the owner of this site/forum is somebody who likes to rave about quality.

>>and we all know that the owner of this site/forum is somebody who likes to rave about quality.

We do? Are you sure you are really thinking about this site? AFAICT Joel raves alot more about the cost/benefit thing.

Joel,

it seems that you or somebody at your company fixed that error. At least I do not got that error now.

Probably you don't care but you greatly restored your credibility in my eyes.

And don't we all worry about how we stand in the eyes of someone who can't even bother coming up with a pseudonym?
