I face less frustration with the new monitors and less slowdowns and disk-grinding with the new machine, but the installation was problematic and I will probably make more changes later. Some of that is from the "free or cheap" philosophy - I mean, the whole setup cost me labor and about $120, which is not bad for a quad-core computer with 8 gigs and 4 monitors.

I've also been kind of sick *and* dragged off by other surprise work (some of which is paid so it's not all bad). I will probably make as much this month as last, if not more, just a little less from mTurk - unless the next week and a half go really well.

I'm still learning techniques and any given day where I can manage to sleep well and get up early (none so far) would help (I have medical limitations that make it almost impossible to keep a regular schedule, which is why I don't have a normal job).
Yeah I'm still itching to upgrade this one, maybe one of these days I'll get in one of my impulsive moods and it'll just sort of happen. Having other income sources to break up the monotony of this gig certainly never hurts, I know I've been going a little nuts here and there with the current lack of full time work. A little birdie did tell me though the school I was working on is entering the next phase though so maybe I'll get back to building America next week.

Yeah I have an occasional job that comes up now and then, and once I settle in better in TurkLand I will probably add UserTesting and/or something else.

As to the upgrades, I'm not sure I will earn more money but it already bugs me less doing it. I will probably earn more money, but I don't know to what extent that would have happened anyway.

Based on what you spent on it I would imagine it'd be easy to recoup the costs with the increase in efficiency. I've added prolific to the mix, but that doesn't seem to pop too often for me.

I went to sleep, woke up, and Alexandria's 15 cents HITs still haven't dropped any. Someone who's on good terms with her should email her and tell her that they're severely underpaid. :cry:

Yeah Prolific is broken (for me) most of the time, but it's had a few great days for me, so, it stays up.

As of now, no. I got emailed yesterday that my identity was verified, but they're not letting me back. So now begins phase 2, emailing the hell out out of them. I feel kinda accountable to keep going since I have built that thread around it, so I'm going to keep pushing.
We are all behind you and supporting you. Hoping this gets cleared up as quickly as possible.
