Based on the early HIT exports, looks like it might be another one of those mornings where 95% of the surveys will be 50 cents or less. ;(

I must be mentally messed up because I was thinking about turk while taking my early morning hours nap. I was thinking of turk and baby monitors - cheaper than a laptop newer than my XP-vintage one that I would never put on the internet anymore and would get the job done of being able to monitor my desktop for Hit Catcher audible notifications. I figure I could set up the transmitter next to the speaker of my PC and take the receiver to the kitchen, outside, etc. and break the tether to having to be in the vicinity of the computer room. The monitor wouldn't need to be a fancy one as I need audio relay (video relay won't work for the purpose) and even if the audio was distorted that you couldn't understand it, you know that Hit Catcher made a sound notification when it caught a hit or when turk got logged out.

Am I crazy with this idea? Any recommendations for an continuous audio-relaying baby monitor that costs under $40?
doesn't hit finder have an option to send an email, or did i just imagine that? the pushbullet thing , i never used it so not really sure what it does. you could probably use that to send alerts to your phone instead of having to buy something.

if you dont wanna do that maybe pair a cheap bluetooth speaker to you comp and just have that in another room

Good morning! Finished my re-watch of the x-men movies yesterday just in time for Dark Phoenix. Sadly, I felt the movie was lacking something and the people in the theater were less than respectful. Maybe I'm just getting older and noticing more annoying little things.

It was definitely disappointing. I don't think it was the worst one ever but it should have been better. But I also don't know why they hired the guy who wrote x3 to write and direct it.

X3 is definitely my least favorite of any of the x-men films to date!!

Or you could just turn up the sound on your computer.
been there, done that. Cranked up the speaker as high as it goes and can't hear it when I'm outside chilling at the backyard patio table or hear it reliably when I'm in the kitchen cooking breakfast or dinner or cleaning fruit/veggies. I've returned to refresh my work queue on the AMT site and found stuff there that I didn't hear the Hit Catcher notification for.
