1. With the changes to MTurk's payment systems I'm recommending people take a moment to consider securing their on-site banking information from userscripts. TVJS has already been updated to explicitly prevent it from accessing sensitive pages, but workers should strongly consider permanently blacklisting scripts from running on pages containing banking information.

    [Guide] Globally Blacklisting Scripts From Running on MTurk's Bank Account Management Pages will show you how.

    You should probably get someone else out there to check on it if at all possible, and if you can prove incompetence on the first guys apart, or that he broke it get your money back

    Frack. Me, too.

    Honestly, as soon as you can afford it have an electrician come look. If he finds nothing wrong it's just a service call. But if he does? Could save your life.

    I had an electrician go through everything when I bought my house (and, cough, had him, cough, run outdoor plugs for my holiday decorations, and I just needed to be sure I wasn't going to melt down my electric panel due to my light obsession at the holidays).

    I empathize so hard. It's obnoxious to trust someone like that and have zero faith in them, especially when they leave nothing to show for a full day of tinkering. You're absolutely justified in being this pissed off. I second everything everyone else says, see if you can get someone else to even just double-check. It's so not worth the anxiety, much less the risk, of something worse happening.

    I'm so sorry. I know it sucks to be cold. I am thankful you have space heaters, but definitely not the same. Praying you can get it fixed tomorrow! :hug:

    Just pulled this months Wired magazine out of the mailbox and the headline on the cover is "Amazon Meets Its Match". I actually gasped. For one long second I was convinced it had to do with all this Times stuff. (It doesn't, but was startling.)

    CT is probably just trying to eat dinner and put all this stress behind him and I'm over here making light of his plight.

    I'm not happy with myself but I'll allow it.
