So Jan, I have to ask, what is the lowdown on your new computer?
on my to-do list, still. I've been looking at the ASUS scratch and dent page. Honestly, I feel a bit stupid about it. I know what RAM is. I understand the basics of processor speed. But I don't know what I need - you know? I'm not a gamer. I don't need a serious computer. But I DO want one that will last.

I've been looking at this one: https://acerrecertified.com/acer-as...ssd-windows-10-home-tc-895-ua91-scratch-dent/

it's on ebay for even less (this time, 'refurb) - 270.00 - more memory 1TB - otherwise the same

ETA: I'm guessing I'd have to add more RAM w/these. But otherwise, okay.

$250 worth of Percy up since last week and i've only done 10, these could at least pay double to make it worth it
You can run two-three at once of the same topic, and swap between them while you wait on timer, especially if you write quickly.

There's no character minimum, just a need for a conclusion. Just don't get last minute college writing scramble PTSD.
You can also re-use the google form data, to keep it under 11min for $2.50/$5 if you are doing two.

11min per hit is ~$15-ish hour, and there's not much else up that is close as a filler. I did 93 of them, all approved.

Researcher said they are removing them at end of August too, just fyi.

Edit: (Direct email quote)
"We may release a few more prompts for argumentative writing soon, but that would be probably the last batch. Our HITs will be available until the end of August, and we'd definitely love to read more of your essays (only if you have a moment to work on the last few!)."

I know exactly how you feel. I'd be willing to pay a modest fee to someone to find just the right computer for me.
