    I mean, it's no different from any job where they want you to do things the way they want them. I use some wonky software for work that I don't love, but it's how the company wants it done so, meh, not worth getting pissed off over.

    It's legit, I am cursed and get put under review every six months :banghead:. You have nine days to send what they want before you get locked out of the account.

    I usually just take a photo with my phone of my ID along with a bank statement or a bill with the reference number listed on the statement along with the account email address and turk ID. Then grayscale the photo with an image editor gimp is fine, crop out whatever isn't needed. Save as a jpg.

    You can fax it for free, I use this site https://app.hellofax.com/. You can upload the photo you made and enter the fax number you got in the email. I also fax it to three other numbers that are known turk/payments numbers.
    Here are the numbers I fax my info every time they request it, account is usually taken out of review within 24 hours.

    Hard drives at your company are available in 250mb and 500mb sizes. You have to store X mb of data. What is the fewest number of hard drives you could use?

    Three questions ago the guy was making $57 an hour.

    I felt poor.

    Now I really feel poor since that $57/hr was apparently in 1992.

    yeah I'm getting that sense. It's just really pissing me off installing a program that doesn't do anything I can't already do because the requester presumably doesn't want to field tech questions. can't blame him; we've all seen those special people who expect requesters to troubleshoot their tech problems, but it still pisses me off, and I'm frustrated because I don't understand the screenshot thing and also the whole thing just seems so incredibly easy that I'm certain I'm screwing up.

    and I missed the UNU even though I was waiting for it. and I did math this morning. So I'm just basically whining and Grinching out of frustration. sorry for griping in here. I should have a nice cup of tea and try that sleep thing or something. didn't mean to trigger anyone with the bad language!

    You could definitely use a nap lol. No hit is worth getting that worked up about. He is seriously one of the most frustrating requesters I've ever dealt with so you have to calculate that into whether or not it's worth it for you just like having to use lightshot If the answer is no then do yourself a favor and walk away. Those hits are not for everyone. I will say lightshot is way easier than using snipping tool, simply because it's one button snip, upload, and copy the link into your clipboard.
