    Todd Rebner [A16DHVMFZKG1X5] Human Tech Study - $15.00 | PANDA

    $19.74 / hour
    00:45:36 / completion time
    Pros:
    Very easy hit, ten minutes or so of my time is for set up. You play a few games, all very simple popcap style.
    Very clear instructions on how long to play- such as 5 minutes or until x points reached.
    Once you are logged in, the layout is easy to follow and includes screenshots of what the next step is.
    Cons:
    You have to provide an email to 'sign up' for a time. Pick the time you want & wait for your email. Download needed to remote into their computer (there is a non-download way for the more computer savvy)
    3 writing prompts (write about your favorite something), but there is a character count built in (minimum 700 per prompt).
    Games lagged some but that could be from my potato Comcast internet so YMMV.

    just thought of something. that cold snap next week will almost definitely cause loss of electricity in some areas, unless things have changed. so be prepared for that if you can.

    In 2-3 sentences tell us what your mood is like now and how you feel about yourself.

    I took $1.80 from starving kids this morning ... I feel OK.

    I have a question.

    How do you guys prefer to keep track of your monthly earnings?

    I used to use Hit Database or whatever it was called (RIP). Then when that went down with the old site, I just relied on the weekly reports and added them up when I needed to.

    But now there's no weekly reports, no hit tracker that tracks by month (MTS only does it for the current month so you have to catch it and make note of it at the right time, at the very end but before it resets, and it doesn't take into account whether the hits have approved/paid out), Amazon payments has no setting that totals everything up for you, and my bank statements/activity list each incoming transaction from Amazon under a different name so it's a pain in the ass to add all of it up for each month when I withdraw daily.

    Is there an easier way to do this that I haven't thought of?

    I carve them into stone tablets and then calculate the numbers with fingers and toes before moving on to my abacus. It's hard work, but worth it.

    jk, I use Amazon Payments.
