    ^ I found things got better at 1k, and even better at 2k. I see a lot of 5ks I wish I could do, too. My advice is to find one source of quick, reliable low-paying hits and stick with it. For me it was the 2 and 3 cent business card transcriptions when they're up, then Crowdflowers which are slower but pay better and are pretty much always up, and then keep checking in and try to catch an Amazon A9 batch, I got my second thousand off of one day when they posted two big batches while I was on.

    It's usually slow on the weekends, and even slower w/ mtruck's overall slowdown this quarter. I, for one, am painting my nails instead of trying to shake change out of the machine.

    Are the ones that say none are available and then reappear in a few seconds because of people PANDAing them by the thousand and then timing out?

    Well, I got my first soft ban from Noah. I think it was because he thought a package was a cake. Or maybe it was the dog butt he thought was a tennis racket, I'm not sure.

    It's too bad dvamnr wasn't legit, those were kind of interesting (and quick).
