things like AC, lights, etc. functioning while you're there.

There was talk about having to refresh the PPM so it would still
credit the station you're listening to. A few years ago I was a
"Nielsen household" for TV. They did give me a small amount of money
as a thank you. The TV innards were wired up to a box and I had a
remote control. Info on other people watching TV with me had to be
entered. When you changed a channel, you had to hit a confirm button,
and after awhile you had to hit a confirm button just so they could be
sure you hadn't fallen asleep while watching a long movie, ball game,
or whatever and kept it on the same channel.
