As always, please report any mistakes.
Considering how much trouble it is to make up a score sender list, I thought I'd share mine with you guys.
I played all the games, stuck the times in a spreadsheet, put in this month's ratios, and calculated which games were most profitable for the amount of time you took to play them. Then I put those games in the order of most to least profitable and entered scores that were the highest you could get without either going into the high-score tables, sending an impossible score, playing past 1k, or getting reviewed.
I'll attach three versions--a three-hour list, a five-hour list, and a ten-hour list. Those are only average times. The times and scores have been randomized, and so the NP gained will be somewhat random as well.
I plan to update these when the NP ratios change. If I happen to be in the mood, anyway.

--The bug in the score sender program right now will cause some of the scores to fail, which means you'll earn less or take longer (depending on whether you want to re-send the scores after the list finishes). Whoever fixes this bug will be hailed as a Neocodex hero, but until then we'll just have to live with it.
--This list includes sponsor games. If these are not available in your area, remove them.
--Using the same list as somebody else is dangerous. I recommend you randomize the order of the games, remove some, add others, and generally make this list your own, rather than using it as-is.
--Yes, these lists take a long time. That's because the times and scores are realistic. These lists don't do anything you couldn't do if you were sitting at your computer playing these games yourself.
--The game of the day jumps in profit every day, usually enough to make it worth putting on at the very leas the 3h and 5h lists. I am not obsessive enough to take this into account, so you will have to do it yourself.
--Regarding Meerca Chase: I am using mod 8. Meerca Chase is only mod 18 if you are on the extreme mode, which isn't really realistic. Feel free to change the mod if you play some other difficulty level.
--I've done my best to proofread these lists properly. If you find any mistakes, please inform me ASAP so I can fix them and re-post.
