So, new requester. Only 1 bad TO so, sometimes worth looking further into. Not this one. Any new persons, don't let the dollar, or the lack of qualifications required, draw you in. Where it says at the top you'll only be doing it a few seconds each day, not an entirely true statement. The TO review is not me.[/td][/tr] Had an interesting email exchange with the gentleman. All I can say is, wow. Happy to share if you care but, otherwise just dumbfounded. :\ I'm being as nice as possible with this review. It may not deserve it. But, I'm trying.

EDIT I hate to be negative but, this one deserves it.:(

I didn't get home until after 1am, made $5.60 in a little over an hour, now I desperately need sleep.

Feel a little better about taking the day off yesterday and the fact that I'm going to be a gone a big portion of the day Monday as well.

I probably shouldn't have told the universe that.

Also re: end of last thread, I would definitely get as much RAM as I could afford, because browsers are insane memory hogs and you can survive memory leaks a little longer. Don't go crazy but 16gb is where I will go when I upgrade this machine.

GPU Memory should not be an issue but kind of is, because basically you don't need a big gaming GPU but all modern GPUs should have 2gb RAM or more, and it *shouldn't* matter at all with browsing but I have noticed that somehow when you get up to 40-50 tabs open for some reason GPU RAM makes a difference. It may also be something *associated* with GPU RAM without actually using any, maybe it's just that display frames are so piggy nowadays that you can actually eat that 2GB all up.

I usually have 20-30 tabs open so my next machine will probably have a pair of Quadros or FirePros from a previous generation ($30-50) or I might get another 750Ti and run both (kind of low power cards). Few cards can support 4 monitors but most can support 3.

My integrated i3 graphics on my teeny tiny Optiplex 790 is doing okay, but you can't add a GPU and really practically can only run dual monitors. Technically I think I can run 3 displayport monitors chained but that's kind of like towing construction equipment behind an economy car.

I could use two machines but practically I'd want to have mTurk on one and everything else on the other, so I'd still lack screen real estate. Will probably build two identical machines set up for 4-6 monitors and just keep one as a backup (possibly mirror it nightly over my network, but I'm a geek so yeah).

The optiplex 790 was $40 BTW, and works find if you don't need that many screens. I would recommend dual as a minimum from my vast 1.5 month Turking experience.

This post was way longer than I intended. Sleep. Bye.

I usually have 20-30 tabs open Sleep. Bye.
:hilarious:
I don't know why but this literally has me laughing out loud, Not just an inserted, "lol". I'm sure it's because I need sleep too.
I think it's cause I'm weird and old, or something. When I'm turking, I have 2 pinned and 3 unpinned on my 'Finding HITs machine' and 2 open on my 'working HITs' machine. 3 monitors and a tv between the 2 so real estate is okay for me, especially since it all works as one machine when connected via keyboard/mouse sharing.

But, yeah, that many tabs and you'd need the RAM, I assume. I've never actually tried. I don't know if I know the address to 50 websites, lol.
I think the max I've ever had open is 8, maybe. I feel like an under-achiever now.:p

REALLY Not picking on you because whatever works for you, works for you. This is the perfect example of how what works for one person may or may not work for the next. I'd get lost over 10 tabs, I think. It just made me giggle and I don't know why I felt the need to share. Anyway, I think I'll take this as my cue, as well. Over-tired and getting silly/stupid. No point trying to HITs with these brains. Night all! :)

EDIT Anyway, thanks for making me smile.:D

Now I know why you pound so much coffee in the middle of the night. What time does the Southeast Asia Wool market start trading?:wink:

I have seen these app testing HITs and I've been more than leery of downloading them. Seems like a easy vector for malware infection. There are easier ways to make $1.00 than potentially having to scrub down a half a dozen devices after some cryptokiddy makes a mess of them.
