    I was just giving December 9, 1998 some more thought. When we launched we were just seven employees. We had five advertisers and zero affiliates. We really have acccomplished a lot in a short period of time. From where I am sitting it seems more like 10 years though.

    Happy Birthday CJ! I didn't even have a computer on Dec. 9th, 1998. I'm sure glad that when I got a computer and later dove into affiliate marketing that CJ was there and willing to give me a chance. I definitely wouldn't have the business I have today if it wasn't for CJ!

    Thanks Commission Junction!

    Congrats CJ!

    5 years...I've been doing this about 4 years, that gives me only one more year to get big and sell for $58 million if I am to match CJ's time frame!

    It's the most wonderful time of the year!~Old Christmas Song

    Noooo.

    I was the first affiliate who managed to sneak under your desk while you weren't looking and re-route my cable so it didn't go under your chair!

    Although when other affiliates turn up here, they turn green with envy when I show them I have TWO CJ whistles.

    Toot toot!!!

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY, CJ

    You did a lot to make affiliate marketing a success.

    Wish you the best during that merger, Todd.

    Let's hope, we'll still be happy to celebrate your birthday in the years to come and let's us know what you need from us. It's the right time to make a wish.

    Are the stats accurate all the way back? I show no transactions in January 2000 and 99 transactions in February.

    Seems unlikely I would have started off with such a bang. But possible, since I probably changed a lot of links all at once.

    Congrats Todd on a job well done! I know that you are one of the visionaries at CJ and you have listened to the affiliate community and come leaps and bounds from the early days. In celebration, I will be taking on another two programs and will run them through the CJ network

    I save all my stats every month, makes for accurate bookkeeping! Those stats are accurate. Prior to the CJ upgraded there was a small notice concerning saving stats since they would not be pushed to the new system.

    How funny it is to look back at the numbers way back then....

    That's great news. I don't know how you are going to get all of those programs in your signature file.

    Thanks everbody for all the positive comments and memories.

    Neither do I. I think I'm going to have to do some javascript that scrolls (sorta like in Times Square where many ads are electronic)...

    Happy Birthday CJ!,

    I can't put into words how highly I rate your Network but suffice it to say that in my mind you do not have any competition and I doubt you ever will.

    Keep doing things the way you are doing them and the world is your oyster (Um it already is your oyster but you know what I mean).

    Hearfelt Best Wishes,
