Alex :

Hi, based on the commission value of the question I can give you 30 minutes of time. Hopefully based on my expertise I can go through them that fast. I'm always a little reluctant to take these on as sometimes they can be completely out of left field. I have a degree in MIS and have worked in the MIS field for over 15 years so I'm willing to give it a try. Let me know if that works. I won't be online again until later this evening but will check my email in case you respond. Thanks, Alex

Customer:

Should we do this now or when you come back? I will send them to you 20 at a time and I will accept 3 times and I will give a bonus each time. Is that ok?

Alex : Sounds good. Will be online later this evening.
Alex :

Let's shoot for 11:15 PM CST, would that work?

Customer:

Im back!

Alex :

Ok, I'm on. I've got about 30 minutes.

Alex :

Are you ready to start?

You can send them here or upload them. On here is fine and we can lock it later. Assuming you can just copy and paste?
