Good morning, crowd. Starting this morning with a word of advice to everyone. Always make backups of your files so you don't have to start from scratch when your computer takes a dump. At least I got a new PC, but I feel like a noob trying to rebuild all of my lists and scripts from memory. Gonna try to extract some information from the old workhorse sometime this week, so hopefully I can get some of it back. We'll see how things go. I get to relive the feeling of being a scared, new turker for a little bit. Oh dear...

Same EXACT thing happened to me two weeks ago. Had to get a new laptop, still hoping to bring it back. I did have a lot of stuff backed up, just nothing to do with MTurk, lost all my passwords. I saved stuff in my download folder, just leaving it there and not saving it separately. Not doing THAT anymore.

We just got Office 365 subscriptions at work, so I am backing up everything on my One Drive.

I'm no rookie, either. 16 years as a librarian and information professional, troubleshooting tech for everyone in the building where I worked, and I SCREWED myself over like any elementary student.

I know the feeling. I am embarrassed that all of my preaching to my old staff about backing up files and uploading to the "safety drive" at regular intervals and now I sit here naked and afraid, because I am too lazy to take my own advice. I keep finding out that I am never too young to learn from my mistakes.

Yep, screwed on an interactive hit where I could have made $2 to $8 bonus but no other participant showed...

30 cent base plus the following compensation for waiting for 5 mins. 15 mins between instructions, comprehension check, and waiting means royally underpaid...

==========

Is this the give advice one?
I knew it. I was almost excited (I mean, I'm a MSW). I breezed through the training - and then my partner didn't want to do it.
