Yes, I agree. Best to be safe, just to be sure.

Eyeballs feeling like sandpaper? Got more hours, of looking at computer monitors?
👁👁:onfire:

Two free tools, help my eyes rest more:

Speech to text typing?

Google Docs has a feature called "Voice Typing" .
I had to install the "Google Docs Offline" Chrome extension to use it. I only use this in Chrome. You need a computer mic.
(Instructions for install, available with a Google search).
______
Text to speech hearing?

I've used this free reader site this past week, for hours. It helps. Copy & paste text, the computer voice reads it, while I rest my eyes listening:

Best news I could have gotten all day:
Negative for Covid, Flu A, Flu B, RSV.
Now I can safely say my congestion and everything is 110% related to the higher than normal cedar count in DFW this year. I figured it might be but better to get tested and know for sure than not.

I thought this was kind of cool. There was a huge BOOOM sound on New Years Day here in Pittsburgh and hundreds of reports to 911 all around SW PA and parts of Ohio and WV. It was definitely a meteor.

word of warning.. took me around 50 minutes.. if anyone does this be prepared for a fairly disjointed lab.. more so than these usually are. it might drive you a bit batty. i managed not to pull my hair out on this one though so it is able to be completed somewhat stress free

To any requestors who might be reading: QUIT ASKING WHETHER WE'VE DONE STUDIES LIKE YOURS IN THE PAST!! I assure you, we have. We may not tell you that we have, but trust me, we have. Yours is not unique.

Funny story about their repetition- we were talking about the signs of Stress/Depression/Anxiety this holiday, and I found that I can name most of the SDAS questions by heart now, from doing the test so much. :D

The requesters literally use the default attention checks included with Qualtrics, and are like, "Have you ever seen any of these widget and pond problems before?" :happy:

I mean, I know that the students posting their surveys may not necessarily know that they're not unique but one would think that whoever directs their dissertations or masters theses would at least steer them away from a lot of the repeated questions. #wishfulthinking
