    Yeah, I don't feel good submitting them. I'll wait until I hear back from him about my comments, and maybe do some in the future if they ever pop up again. I was hoping the first one was just super hard, but after the second, I have a feeling they're all like that.

    Woot hit 1000. But, got screwed over by a mass reject (F*&K you Guru) so I don't have the 99% to do Rubins. Someday...

    because of the frequency of IT problems at schools, and how many enraged students would be spamming every email address in the whole department, i think universities try to limit access to the individuals running these services. they're not only dealing with these systems but also school-based email, residential and office networks, administrative and financial software, other academic software, all the hardware, etc.

    Congratzz! And bummer all at the same time. A good thing for you to do is constantly keep checking for redwood 1 cent hits and doing them as often as you can catch them during your day turking. If you do this consistently it will help bring your numbers back up considerably. Good luck.

    I feel exactly the same way. There was one of the course/professor batches within the last couple of weeks that had some seriously bad information as a starting point. Some were saying they would just write N/A and they were still getting approved. I would write long notes in the comment box and even try to suggest what class I thought they were looking for (when there was absolutely no match in terms of course title/number that was in the base information they gave you to work with). I kept hoping there might even be bonuses for the people who were really thorough. But that didn't happen...:)

    So, I've been gone for a few hours. I'm not in the mood to turk right now. But there was a thread from the other morning with with $1.00 Rubins and a site to help you out that I posted and don't remember the name of or feel like looking up. Sorry.

    I just walked a couple miles in a snowstorm because of my effing pap. He was drunk at the bar and I refused to let him drive. I had to literally tackle his keys from him and then he only gave them up when the bartender said to give them to me or he was going to be banned from the bar. I'm driving his vehicle up the effing mountain and he decides he wants to drive now. Because he's a much better drive than me in a snowstorm, even when wasted. He pulls the keys out of the ignition while I'm still driving. I'm screaming and I put it in park and he gets out and comes to my door and tells me to get out.

    I said I'm not riding with him and he said "then I'm sorry sweet pea, but you're walking". So I steal the flashlight out of his truck and a blanket and start walking. Mind you, it's 27 degrees out and I had on a light jacket and slippers. It was one the top of a mountain, pitch black, six inches of slush, and I can't see more than 20 feet in front of me because of the fog. I've never been so scared in my life. I walk about a mile to the nearest house, call 911 and then call trying to find a ride home. All this time he insisted on following me in the vehicle to make sure I was "okay". I was more afraid of him hitting me than anything else. He keeps circling the block and doing donuts in the road while I'm on the phone with the police. Then he takes off. Little old lady's house I was at told me she wasn't comfortable with me there, and I understood, so I started walking. I finally get far enough that my dad can find me and pick me up and take me home. I get home and come to find out that the cop didn't find my pap, he's home safe and sound. FUCK HIM.

    I'm sorry about typing all this, but I had to get it off my chest and tell someone. I couldn't help but think the whole time that he was going to wreck and die or kill someone else. He already has a DUI and has been to jail for it, but I guess he didn't learn. The man is 66 years old. It's about time he grew up, no?

    /rant.

    Sorry again. I'm going to go take a happy pill and some glaucoma medicine and get in a warm bath and try to feel my feet again. What a shitty g*ddamn night.

    Naisybee sorry about all that but maybe it's time you got away from all the chaos that seems to be in your life ? Just my opinion.
