    One-way communication is painful.

    When I send messages people don't collect fast enough and they get behind. When I receive they don't send enough and it forces me to skip turns. Rawr indeed!

    Not that I'm doing so great anyway. (But I would do better if I didn't have to skip 5 turn because I had no commands!)

    If you're doing a Places Database HIT, nothing is at it appears. Up is down, left is right, the Ghostbusters reboot is an amazing movie.

    I tried that one and couldn't make heads or tails of it. Just too much on my mind. So I threw it back.

    In terms of the bonuses for the cereal batches, do they stack with successive points earned? Or is it just a flat bonus based on the point value you get to? I've had the qual for bit, but this is the first batch I've participated in.

    The base pay will be $0.15, and the bonuses will work as follows. Set 1: $0.15, Sets 2/3: $0.25, Sets 4/5: $0.30, Sets 6/7: $0.35, Sets 8--11: $0.40, Sets 12/13: $0.50, Sets 14+: $0.60.

    edit* so i mathed, i had a few games that we got 15 matches, that should bonus to $5.75 for those games

    So to clarify its a straight .60$ bonus on top of the .15$ base for getting more than 14 sets?

    Yes, they stack. With the current setup if you score 10 points, you will receive a bonus of $3.30.

    Sweet that's what I was looking to find out, cause if it was just a single bonus then it seemed a good bit less worthwhile.

    Have they been popping up at any particular time? I would say I've had the qual since sometime in December, but this is the first time I've really noticed them.

    There was a second batch in the afternoon, which I appreciated.

    I was kind of working with half my brain today, maybe next time I will be able to hit it with my whole brain.

    Yeah that's what I noticed was the later batch that finished up a bit ago, might motivate me to get up at a decent time.
