    But, you get a whole day to do it.:p

    Morning. :coffeepc:
    Been up all night burning through freeCodeCamp(Day 2). Just have to do the CSS Flexbox and CSS Grid bits, then I'll try and put it all into practice. Signed up on CodePen.io so, my first attempt at building a responsive webpage, using CSS and HTML, will maybe be tomorrow(today after a nap:p). I'm still not super into designing "websites" but, I can see it's obvious necessity if you're coding in that environment. CSS definitely makes things a lot easier, as far as organization and carrying over style and formatting, and making things adapt based on viewport. Getting through this track in the curriculum definitely makes all that source page stuff more "readable". Anyway, that's all the geekspeak I have in me this morning.

    On an Mturk note, I'm going to have a coffee and an episode of something, so I can get my brain out of code mode. I'd rather not waste mental energy trying to figure out how the HITs are written when I should be completing them. I'll be back in a bit but, wanted to check in.:)

    Get it out of the way early. Great job! You didn't waste much time on it, at least. :wine:
    I've had 2 this year. Waiting on a reversal on one. Letting the other slide.
    I wonder if it was the same person who was racking them up pretty quick before finding the nguyens. That person who said they tried to fly before they could crawl or, shot(themselves) first asked questions never. It sucks that a lot of people come from what's become a "throwaway society" which has caused some people to forget the age old adages about doing it right the first time, measuring twice cutting once, or mise en place(everything in it's place[the art of being prepared before starting]). I'm all for dumping old ways of thinking that don't benefit anyone but, some of them are useful. Unlimited lives have ruined us.:p

    I wish we had a sticky on the top of the MTurk Help & Resources that had horror stories like this, so that new people could learn from each other's, and all of our, previous mistakes. But, then again, those same people have probably never been to the "Getting Started" page and would probably never see it. It's sad when you see it happen a few times. It's frustrating when you see it happen often. I guess it's like anything else. You can't really protect people from themselves. That sucks. This is for whomever it was. :hug:

    I haven't been on in over a year, how do you export a hit onto the forum, i thought I had an export script before, but its not working. Is there a different script nowadays?

    I use the one baked into MTS. I'm sure there are other options though.
