One thing about wading thru pages and pages looking for negatives, is...
it really does show that the seller is overall very good. Know what I mean?  There will always, always, always be those customers who are impossible to please, especially on E-Bay.  I've gotten almost all my negatives from leaving calm, but justifiable negatives when the buyer had stiffed me and not gone thru with the sale. We are called to leave these negatives as sellers to warn the community, but instantly we will get flamed with a retaliatory negative that is a total lie.  So, now most sellers don't leave justified negatives anymore! That said, really, if you have to wade thru page after page to find even 1 negative, I would say you're safe bidding, as long as the feedback is current!
web pages
No that I wanted links posted - would be nice - but just curious if other shave a site or myspeace page for their own benefit.

I appreciate your info
need some reference web pages?

Hi all,

If you would like some web pages to add to your "favorites," feel free to visit my website at:





In 1985, when their BOS was only 85 pages....sm

Back in the 80s, AAMT used to care about all the MTs.  Their BOS was only 85 pages long (I still have one of these BOS....a gold book, very tall and very skinny)....then the AAMT got big and it all went to their heads and their 2nd edition BOS is close to something like 600+ pages long.  And now they support offshoring to India/Pakistan.  At that point, they no longer cared about the USA MTs.

Later for the AAMT..........*L*.......MUCH later.

Yellow pages

Since my phone is listed under my business name I get a free listing and have gotten quite a few one-time only jobs, seminars, interviews, etc. that really pay well and not needing a 24 TAT and it has worked for me.   Also no 1099's with then as it is a one time job.   Last year got a 10 tape seminiar on pet therapy and it was almost $2,000 for the seminar done in our spare time over 2 weeks.   Just my 2 cents worth. 

1st one in the 1980s was 85 pages....sm

the first AAMT BOS was 85-90 pages long back in 1985....the one I have today, Second Edition bought 2 years ago....has I do believe 600 pages.....

so your question about what has changed cannot be answered in the post here......get yourself a copy ??  Can be ordered right from their site....aamt.org 

That is at the top of all pages - I forgot about it! Thanks. (NM)

and many are 3-4 pages long....sm

I loved them, back in the days - a lot of these reports are EXPERT WITNESS reports too...and perhaps the dictator has not even seen the patient....just reporting based on medical records/radiology, et cetera.  Most of mine (back in the days) were 3-4 pages long, done for orthopaedists and/or chiropractors. 


I understand, I think it is just here lately the pages are full of nothing but MQ and then
it turns into arguments and nasty remarks, and so forth.

It isnt really the talking about MQ, it is just the bickering going on about it.

I understand completely about wanting to discuss some things.

I dont really mind the MQ posts, but they are so large in number.

I hope things clear up. Maybe if you and other MQ employees that have a lot of time with them all take some "time off" at the same time, they could get the idea they need you guys.

I guess if I was with someone for that length of time, I would have the same feelings.

I really do wish you the best and I dont want you to think anyone has singled you out. It is the whole MQ thing.

I think we are all scared because MQ is a leading company and scared that they are ruining the whole MT business for us all.

We would all love to see MQ split up or downsize and not be such a big part of the industry. Then again we dont want to see people out of a job either.
Wow, almost 4 pages of the stuff, someone has been busy, nothing better
I knew I saw this a few pages ago and searched for you.
Here's a link
2nd edition over 600 pages long....sm
your client is out of touch........*lol*
What about the pages where you only type a few lines?
You're still making out better getting paid per page. I know I am.
Spoke too soon. Only working on some pages, not all. nm
my pages loading fast
no problem
Even on pages where no lewd content, often
For OTHER pages, scroll the other way or go to the View menu. SM
Look for Text Size. It won't fix the huge text on this page, though.
Pages are very slow to open for me tonight, some not at all. Anyone else? nm
Need to ask about docs saying "use my normal," too. Could be a few pages if an op! nm
Go through your local yellow pages and call
companies who advertise they offer health insurance.  Call several companies as the premiums can vary widely, although the coverage will be the same.   I did this and called 6 different companies and the premiums varied as much as $200.00/mo for the same exact insurance.   Celtic was the company that had the best rate for us, but that was nearly 4 years ago.   If you have no pre-existing conditions you can get a temporary insurance through Fortis for 6 months to a year depending on your state, provided that you have not been without coverage for greater than 45 (I think) days.   You can also go on-line to einsurance.com and get an idea of rates, though I still suggest you call local agencies.  
Do a search for 'happy with your job' or something like that. This was discussed a few pages b
Check out Jon Barron's health pages
Good info and will help you.  Liver detox is for real and don't listen to anyone saying it isn't.  Too many people helped by this.  Jon Barron and Herbert Shelton can't be wrong.  Don Colbert, M.D. also recommends this.  Get Paul Bragg's book on fasting.  Can't go wrong.  Good luck to you.
Go through you local yellow pages and call
companies that offer health insurance and get a quote.  Call several because the premiums can vary significantly.  BCBS may have a low rate, but they are a pain in the rear to deal with and deny more claims than they pay. 
Is the whole net slow or just these boards?? Taking pages
Search the archives box at the top of forum pages.
I do a minimal amount and the letter was about 2 pages long but mostly about ASR.
Try Yahoo yellow pages in the area the doctor
looking for free jeff gordon coloring pages
for my 4 year old son.  does anybody know of any links?  I've found several but none with coloring pages.  thanks!
Headers and Footers can carry on to the rest of the pages.
How long are the pages or are you just doing sticky notes to be slapped
Is anyone else missing the complete list in the blue box? Pages seem to be smaller, too. nm
Some rates were posted a few pages back. Search the Google
Working in Word, and suddenly my screen splits into two pages, and I can't reverse it. HELP!
Does anyone know what I've done and what I can do to get it back to just one window? It is Word 2003 on a XP platform, if that helps any. Thanks.

Has anyone used Tessier paper back version 5 x 8 book with over 2000 pages - does that make it hard
Oh, forgot to say all the phones ringing, overhead speaker blurting out pages, background talking
dictator's cell phones ringing, kids yelling from dictator being at home, machines in the ICU beeping off and on during the entire dictation, saws going from casts being removed nearby, and you can just imagine all the other noises such as nose blowing, sniffling, chomping on food while dictating, and on and on.  EXSpeech doesn't like those noises, so the machine lets the MT"s transcribe those YUKKY reports all day long and all night long.  Exspeech gets the good guys!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The usual (sm)
eggs, rabbit, all that good fertility stuff. Why o why do you assume everyone celebrates the same Hallmark holidays in the same benefit-the-American-manufacturer way that you do?
I don't think so...no more than usual anyway
Our system is back up at MQ, and we have the largest backlog in MQ history. So apparently...it didn't go anywhere.
*a little longer than usual...
PIZZA, it's the usual.
What is YOUR USUAL English?...sm
the SLANG English?
Unfortunately, this is business as usual - sm
I was a lab supervisor in Pathology for many years. I watched my lab downsize from 27 people to 7 in 5 years, all because of the almighty dollar. We still had to do ALL the work that 27 people used to. They kept the best and hardest-working, and showed the door to the rest. In our economy, this is the reality of business now. Through the years I have learned to accept this. My only option is to find a new employer and hope that the new job doesn't go the way the other did, but the reality is, it will. So I have to continue to adjust if I want to make it financially. I am a long-divorced mother of 3, have a good work ethic, and by God, I WILL make it! It's sad that we have to work harder just to make the same money, or even less, but this is not a phenomenon unique to our careers. Everyone else is feeling it, too. I feel the responsible thing to do is to provide the services demanded by my employer or seek employment elsewhere.
Usual ratio is 3:1 of dictation, so 2-1/2 to 3 hrs NM
Are you sure it is a google ad? It's where the usual paid ads
are but it might be a Google ad. Maybe it is a yahoo ad. I am looking at a yahoo ad now up there. Google ads are smaller but I guess I have never seen yahoo ads that I paid attention to.
It's RAINING here in San Francisco, as usual!
So far in April we have had only 2 sunny days. In March we had 27 rainy days. It's getting ridiculous!
Work as usual on holiday - sm
As an IC, if I can find time, I will work as usual on a holiday. Being an IC means you kinda need to fulfill your client's needs. So, if they need me to work a little extra or work on the holiday, I will do my best to meet their needs. Sometimes, I can not, but most times I will do what they need.

Mind you, I have my own clients, not an MT company. It is my philosphy that I need to keep my clients happy and exceed their expectations in fulfilling their needs or they will look somewhere else for my services.

Hope this helps you, even if in a small way.

I would like to say, it is an adjustment going from employee to IC. Some need to change their way of thinking and start thinking like a "business" owner. It is not just a job, but your business and your career.

Another assumer, as usual wrong!
By the way you sign in, MTmom, hmmmmmmmm sounds like the ones I have been talking about, trying to supermom it and work and complaining all the time. If you had read the post above mine, the person stated MTing was boring as sin and yet saying I was whining? I lead now the most perfect existence I could never have imagined and it has taken me years to get to where I am in life. Everyone should be so blessed! Oh by the way, what a really bad thing to do is to call another human ignorant. I just let Karma handle things like that. I am saying what I read here all the time and if you are offended, then you probably are one that the shoe fits.
obvious management post here as usual nm
Need alternative to usual Labor Day cookout
We are having a family get-together on Labor Day. We usually grill hamburgers and hot dogs, but I was trying to think of something different this year. Any suggestions? There will be young kids there, so it would have to be something they could enjoy as well. Thanks!
Right as usual Hayseed! And what about British dialects - sm
such as a strong Cockney accent compared to upper-crust Londoners.... it's like a different language. Every country in the world has similarities in their respective languages as well. Has less to do with color than it does social class, location, education (or lack thereof), etc.
blame the victims as usual shame on you

Profession has turned into a prodution line and its the MTs themselves that are turning it into that, not the MTSOs.
