Back to Turking

There's a book I want to order from Amazon, so I've been doing some Turking again the last few days. It's still not as fun as the good old days right after it launched, but I've managed to make a few buck while laying on the couch late at night. I did about 50 short transcription hits for Videojug.com over the weekend, but so far they haven't been approved. The "Are these watches different?" hits from Amazon remind me of the good old days somewhat, since they're quick to do, but they seem to trickle them out and they're quickly gone. I probably won't have the patience to get ripped off for my work long enough to get the entire amount I need for the book, but it was fun to spend a few hours back in the slave yard.

yea, you can say that again. I spend a lot of time turking away thousands of them and it does help to have some pocket money.
