Unfortunately, growing up outside of Fenway, when tickets were $6-$8 for bleacher seats, you kinda gotta like the Sox. It's genetic.:)
Okay, that's fair enough. I can forgive that because you have a legitimate reason. So many people hate my yanks just for the sake of it. :p

still love ya, pumpkin butt.

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.:)


EDIT This is just my way and may be entirely wrong or different from everyone else. YMMV
This strikes me as excellent advice for 90% of people here, me included.

If you qualify and haven't done this, I think it's no more than 20 mins. (if I remember correctly).

Thanks. I appreciate the input because, like most everyone else, I'm just figuring it out as I go and seeing what works for me. I wish I had a few other ways to compare it to.This plan seems to work. As it gets slower in the evening, I start catching some of the other PandAs from earlier. I catch about 8 out of 10 that I want. I do throw some back at the end of the day. But, today, for instance, I have 14 PandAs left that probably won't produce. I viewed 105. I don't view many HITs that I don't complete, or try to. I'm not super curious, I'm too focused on working.:)
