      Nice job getting a part 2. I did not, so I'm guessing I wasn't one of the top ones of the first round, lol. Tedious but still decent pay. Hope this one is better for you!

      I got an email regarding part 2, but couldn't catch it. OTTO actually caught it Tuesday. There's a 48 hour window, which helps. I couldn't do it just sitting in one shot that's for sure.

          If you like writing, these are good. I usually avoid most HITs with writing, but for whatever reason I enjoy these and get them done super fast. I did one yesterday and another just now. Guess you can do more than 1? It didn't give me any quals saying I couldn't. Finished in about 5 minutes.

          Edit: Okay, maybe one a day. It only lets me do one today and one yesterday. Regardless of that, fast and quick.

            Happy Thursday! I have had a headache almost nonstop since Sunday. Even Excedrin isn't helping. It's making it difficult to look at my computer for too long at one time. I think someone made a voodoo doll of me and just keeps poking a needle into the head.

              Nagging headaches are the worst. I found depending on the type of headache a lot of times it will relieve the pain a bit if I put an ice pack on the back of my neck for 5-10 mins. Helps relieve my migraines the most. I'm assuming it's weather related though too. I know my body doesn't know what to do we've been on a weather roller coaster this winter. There should be snow on the ground and we have only had a few cold days. Right now it's 50 and breezy. Should be in the 20's right now.

            these were .40 each last week...someone lost their mind if they think .03 is remotely enough
