    National Read a Book Day HITs Sunday September 6, 2020

    Possibly created by a bibliophile, the unofficial holiday encourages people to pick up a book and immerse themselves in it.
    Lowers Stress
    Research has shown that reading can have several health and social benefits. Frequent readers tend to have lower stress levels than non-readers. In addition, reading can stimulate brain activity and improve memory. Socially, reading can reap a lot of benefits - well-read people tend to be more empathetic and aware of societal ills and differences.

    Reading can also improve critical thinking and comprehension skills and can make people better writers.
    How to Celebrate?
    Wether you are a fan of fiction, non-fiction, science fiction, history, medical literature, short stories or any of the hundreds of genre of literature out there, here are some ways you can celebrate Read a Book Day:
    • Read that book you have always been meaning to pick up and read.
    • Revisit your favorite book and read it again.
    • Join a local book club so that you have more motivation to read.
    • If you are already a part of a book club, what about organizing a book party for them? Invite all the book club members and discuss a book while enjoying dishes inspired by your favorite books.

    Hi Fisherman, I have let Otto Heavy run for 2 days straight. Zero HITs. Otto Lite not running, cache cleared, OH cycle set to 1.4 with not even PC running. No other scrapers running. $ set OH to .10, and still Zero HITs. What is jacked up on my system or settings to not allow OH not to work? Could it be something in my Bitdefender firewall-config that's stopping it? Please advise as I really want Heavy to work on my system.

      GonzoATL I'll work with you to get this resolved. I don't think it has anything to do with your firewall.

      This sounds like the classic case of having Otto Heavy set up to not catch hits. Can you give me a screenshot of your Filter settings ?

      GonzoATL I don't think it would be Bitdefender. I use it too and Otto Heavy works fine. Have you tried reinstalling? Do you have the TO filter turned off?

            Finally grabbed the mturk-ta-requester HIT for 5 bucks. Hopefully not going to be as slow as it was yesterday. Only shooting for $10 and I am halfway there. Last night ended with me sleeping on my porch watching Rick and Morty drunk as hell. Screwdriver to start off the day seems fitting.

              Holiday weekends tend to be some of the slowest unfortunately. I choose to be productive around the house on these days and just let otto run and try and catch anything that may pass by.

              I'll still beat yesterday at this rate, over 8 bucks so far. I have been on administrative leave for work for 2 months getting full pay but I am missing the OT.

                Good morning cupcakes! I am taking today OFF! I was "kidnapped" last night by my boys and we went for fancy coffee and car riding. We took a wrong turn down a gravel road and wound up scaring ourselves 🤣! It went on for a mile or two and had NO lights and we came up on a farmhouse with a school bus in the yard...again, not a single light. Real Texas Chainsaw Massacre stuff! It was so funny!
                Positive as f*&%! Be happy and everything else is a breeze!

                  CrazyCatLady it was the most fun I've had in 15 years! When we were lost I told them about a book I'm reading "Devolution" and scared them worse ! Its about Mount Ranier erupting and causing a troop of Bigfoot to leave the mountain in search of food and they start attacking little towns in Washington along the way! It was so funny!

                The 30 day free trial of Otto Heavy will be ending on 9/16/2020. All T2 members who have not upgraded to T3 memberships by this time will no longer have access to Otto Heavy and will revert to Otto Lite.

                Please let me know as soon as you can if you will be upgrading so I can make sure you have no disruptions.

                  GonadStrife When I went to college, my apartment was right next to a church... Thankfully I went home almost every weekend. Waking up to those bells on a Sunday morning is a nope from me!

                  I bought my house when I was 21 and am now 33, almost 34, and I have had to endure the bells for going on 12 years. I don't knock the calling their congregation, I only ask that they wait until I am less hungover or drunk again.
