Plodding away on my thesis

So I’m transcribing the interviews of the usability study. It’s nice
hearing the good things again, but I’m seriously thinking that this is
not stuff I want to spend that many hours of my life on, even if it’s
classic research assistant work.

It takes me around 3 hours to transcribe a recording. Let’s say that
it takes other people longer to do that, say 5 hours. There are six
recordings left. I should spend Friday looking for an audio
transcription service based in the Philippines, or someone who’s
willing to do it.

Does anyone know how I can get this sorted out?
