    So I leave my Finder running thru the night but keep Catcher off (of course, because I don't wanna catch a 45 min HIT while I'm asleep), but tonight I wondered about those elusive 12 hour, 24 hour, 3 days, 2 weeks timers and how I would love to wake up to see I caught one and have time to complete it.

    The idea is to set a time that you plan on starting to turk, and only allow catcher to catch HITS that are an hour after your start time or later. I dunno. This sounds like it wouldn't be easy to create a script for, but I think a lot of people could benefit from it.
