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.

    Go into unexpected debt or have an emergency expense.

    That sounds snide, but that honestly always galvanizes me.

    Or I look at my savings account and the panic that it's too low if one of those things happens also helps me find motivation.

    Basically, I panic over not enough money. For real.

    Pupper Update:
    After 8 weeks, many setbacks, and a ton of money later we have progress. She is able to lay on her broken leg side at times now. She is getting slowly stronger. She can't be left alone and I hired a sitter (my grandson), still requires the harnessess for help up and down and outside business. A work in progress we are, at 14 my stubborn girl is hanging in there.

    Yep! They had to replace the entire breaker box but now it's the most solid looking thing in this old farm house! They had like 4 people out to make sure the new guy didn't fuck it up. My favorite thing was sitting inside the house listening to them working. One of them turned the power to it on without telling the others and the dude started to reach for it and everyone started screaming "NO MIKE NO DONT TOUCH THAT!" He's like but why? "ITS LIVE RIGHT NOW MIKE DONT". My best experience from it.

    This seems like a good learning lesson. I mean the lesson is electricity will kill you...but it's something he would have remembered for the rest of his life.

    after I flooded, my girlfriend's dad came over to help replace some outlets in the crawlspace. He's been doing this shit professionally for like 40 years. He still managed to shock himself and he reacted like it was just another day on the job. Like he shocks himself everyday. part of the job kinda thing. dunno
