    Must be too easy... the site is flooded and they're basically saying "come back later".

    Code:
    Requester:     	Amazon Requester Inc.
    	
    HIT Expiration Date:   	Dec 7, 2005  (3 weeks 1 day)
    Time Allotted:   	60 minutes
    	
    Reward:   	$0.03
    HITs Available:   	6702
    Perhaps I didn't read through this well, but what is that? Is that a commision? You'd have to do alot of those to make some real money from this. I certainly hope it isn't an hourly pay.

    It's been taking me about 20 seconds to do each one - about $5.40 an hour.

    Well that's not that bad, though I wouldn't make a career out of it.

    >>> I certainly hope it isn't an hourly pay.

    The couple of HIT's I looked at consisted of 7-8 street scene photographs with a question like "Which of these pictures best shows <xyz premises>" where xyz was a pharmacy or something similar. There was also a "none of the above" option, which appeared to be the correct choice on the examples I saw.

    Each "HIT" tooks less then a minute.

    I do not have an Amazon.com account however, (just European ones), and I could not be bothered to go through a sign up procedure of unknown length just to earn $0.03.
