How is this site funded? I’ve carefully researched every link taking you off the site: some go to useful information on the topic and some go to the cheapest authorized retailer for a product. The latter earns me a small affiliate commission. You still receive the best deal and I receive a small commission to help with hosting fees and other website expenses. Thanks for your support.
