My daughter and her friends are being different colored squids for halloween, and my daughter is the rainbow.

The math book isn't comedy, it is tricks and fun things you can do with math.

There's a part about all these different shapes you can make using overlapping circles. That one is interesting.

I definitely hear from people that sometimes their stuff doesn't show up. It's frustrating because I can't really debug it since it's all done by amazon and I just have to trust them. Overall, it still brings in good revenue, but it's not perfect.

Sometimes, if an item is ordered near the time the report is generated, and it hasn't shipped yet, it just shows up in the next report. But, I just checked amazon and I didn't see other stuff. I can check what gets ordered vs what actually generated commissions (the latter being what the report uses). So, I think it didn't work for both your cases.

One guess I have is that affiliate links tend to be sticky. So, if you happened to have hit another site's affiliate link, then ordered stuff within 24 hours of that, the commission may have gone to them. This is just speculation since I can't know what actually happened.

I see that the small order I ordered (just before my post #111) just got billed on my charge card. I'm hoping the one I made after that (with the right link) shows up in the December ones. It hasn't been charged yet because it hasn't shipped. At least I think that's what's happening.
