Embracing "Confirm Artist Name" HIT's

Well I've never been a fan of the 2 cent "Confirm Artist Name" HIT's, but today I learned to appreciate them. Most can be done faster then Image Adjustments and some of the album covers are pretty entertaining.

Here's my setup, first off I am using Firefox 1.5RC3, with the extension Greasemonkey 0.6.3. Then I am using the Greasemonkey script TurkOp. Next I am using "3 in 1 Magic Joy Box" to hook up one of my Gamecube controllers to my PC, and then I have JoyToKey running, so that I can control my browser using the gamepad. So I set the keys up how a I want them and BAM! For about 75% of "Confirm Artist Name" HIT's I can simply press a few buttons, and it goes super fast. But then part of them the correct answer isn't there and I have to type it out. Which is a slowdown...But must be done. Tomorrow I might time myself a bit and see if I'm actually making over minimum wage on these now. I think if I can just get in rytham with having to type them out part of the time I might be able to make more per an hour then I was with making Image Adjustments.

You're brilliant! I don't have all that, I just do it manually...but that's a clever set up you have going.

One of the problems with just selecting listed names is that I've come across several where at first glance, the name seemed to be correct, but spending a few more seconds showed that they were actually misspelled.

Anyone else noticed that the artists name suggestions in the Confirm Artist HITS have disappeared?
