Rewrite Amazon product links using jQuery, RegEx and PHP

Over at Gamers With Jobs we wanted to rewrite any outbound Amazon product links so that they include the GWJ affiliate ID (every little bit counts when you're a community site). Deciphering Amazon's generally bloated URLs can be tricky, as can knowing what exactly is required when building a link to a product page.

Spring 2009 Video Games, Learning and Literacy

I've been really quiet for the last several months, but just wanted to drop a quick line and say I'm helping out with the Video Games, Learning and Literacy class I took last spring. Among other things, I've setup a site for the class that we're using in place of Blackboard. I used Drupal and, while it's still under pretty heavy construction theme-wise, the site should prove to be a great resource for the students. Check out the Spring 2009 VGLL site, if you're interested.
