That's how I used to force myself to work. I would start spamming HITs on the forum, then I would start feeling obligated to work on the ones that I was posting. It was nice when that actually worked.It's actually instinct to post them now. It would kill my productivity for a few days if I had to remember not to post HITs.
I was predicting Astros in 6 but that is not something I spend too much time on. Nevertheless, I am confident Astros can and will win this. The Dodgers are a great team with insane talent. It wont be *easy* for Astros to win but I think they have certain advantages in a few areas and that makes me confident.I wish I was that confident. A psychic actually told me the Astros would win in 5. Definitely not that confident, but it would be awesome to win at home.

Same. If only surveys are available I post more since I have to do them. Good batches then I am working off the forum and post something if I see it on a break.That's how I used to force myself to work. I would start spamming HITs on the forum, then I would start feeling obligated to work on the ones that I was posting. It was nice when that actually worked.
Excuse me while I go unCollect all my 25 PandA's. (My daughter has explained this to me, but I get desperate during the day.)You will. It may not be for an hour or so but, I almost guarantee that with an hour and a half, as long as you don't have a lot of other PandA's running(I never have more than 3 alternating at 1.2seconds and HitFinder runs every 3 seconds. Rarely get PRE's. Only if I'm working fast as well.) you'll catch it.
My mother and I shared a love for the Astros. She passed away a few years ago and the night of game 7 of the ALCS vs the Yankees (when the Astros won and advanced to the WS) was her birthday. It was a crazy emotional night for me.
20 is long. I use 3 seconds. Most stuff is gone in 20. I bet you don't actually see a lot of stuff. If you are desperate, increase your chances of catching a HIT by trying to grab it as often as possible. That means, only try and grab a few at a time. It's like one of those boxes you get into and it blows dollars around. If its full of ones but there are a few $20s in there, just focus on the $20s. You can't get them all. The way to make money is to focus and prioritize.(Same with queue. Don't let a dollar expire while working on a penny) If you have a $.50 PandA going as one of your 3, and a $2 one comes along, pause the $.50 and add the $2. When you catch one of your 3, flick another on. I make a PandA for every HIT I want that I don't catch(pausing it if it's not priority), then work my way down the list in order of pay/time, running 3 at a time. You can even move them with the little arrows in HitCatcher to help prioritize. In the morning, when I get up, I clear it all out and start again. I also close the "found HITs" window on Finder and just use the "logged HITs" window. It moves around less and the new one is always at the top. Phew. That's all I got for the moment.Excuse me while I go unCollect all my 25 PandA's. (My daughter has explained this to me, but I get desperate during the day.)
Thank you again for another tip.
I have HitFinder running at 20 (scan delay) so that's OK, right?
