    What is this life if, sweet wordsmith, we have no time to take the pith?
    Every stew starts with the first onion.
    I took it upon myself to investigate a trifle; it had custard, jelly, soggy sponge things...

    I had a nice reply from her, she said mine had completed despite the strange ending and I was paid. Hope you get sorted too.

    Why is PA so fraught with errors recently? I now expect 503/502/404/whatever rather than look for it to work and it does not disappoint! Time someone stopped filling their pockets and invested in some server space/a spring clean/something, innit?

    But yes it is flakey today.

    Did everyone who uses Circle see the email about not being able to cash out this week end due to their banking partner's maintenance?

    PA needs a serious overhaul since its "improvements", imho. It seems feedback to them is virtually pointless since they contradict what I tell them half the time:

    I cannot stop the clock counting down without hitting "Submit Study" which can be a pita on those you have to open in a new window as it is so easy to forget. I have never actually allowed it to get to zero to find out whether it times out even after a completion code is received. They won't have it.

    I also informed them no code is received until after you have to hit the thumbs up/down icon; how do you know whether it "went OK" until you receive the code? They won't have that either.

    At least I am getting some studies now.
