If I boil mine ahead of time, I go ahead and peel off the shell after they have (sm)
been sitting in a pan of cold water for about 30 minutes.

Mac does have one that runs XP and all your old PC software.  Go down and check it out.  The lovely part is that they are virtually virus-free.  Yay.

If you get a PC find someone in your town who will help you build it yourself.  You will pay less than half-price that way.  Just get enough RAM and the right processor for the software you intend to run and you are set.  I don't care anymore what name is on the tower, just so it works and I can afford it.  I have wasted thousands on brand names and reputations that went down the hole later on and then had to deal with "customer service" in some place in BFE that was PREVIOUSLY 24/7/365 and now was Monday-Friday 8-5 unless there is a holiday or the boss wears green khakis or there is a sale at Macy's, etc.  Or they have been bought out by someone who honors your warranty in a "different fashion" and it is of little or no help.  Or, the one where they tell you go to the wbesite, but you can't because you can't get online and they tell you to call back after you do that (get on line).   I say no more - they aren't getting my money anymore!   Look at all the $$ you will save and then you can get a killer monitor and other stuff with all the cash you save.  You can order all the parts from discount PC suppliers and all you need are a couple of tools. 

Good luck!  Save Money! 

Apple a day
I recently heard that an apple in the morning will wake you and give you more energy than coffee.  I have yet to try this.  Anyone hear of this or try it?  I guess it also "keeps the doctor away."  Maybe tomorrow. 
What about mode -
increasing speed or constant speed and what does this even mean? Thx.
American as apple pie
Many years ago I heard someone quote a prophetic statement - "The East shall look to the West and the West shall look to the East."   I just never thought I would live to see such a rapid switch in my time.  Let's see, we have Bush who sports an all American personna.  I can't begin to count how many times he uses the word(s)  "American way of life,"  yet never in the history of this country are we seeing hundreds of thousands of jobs in America in all fields given away to the far East and China.  Even our military, the Navy, is considering having their fleets built in China!  We fight a war with much of it under private contractors, we send our private information to third world countries but our leaders are touting the Privacy Information Act, huh?   How can I support my president in his "all American as-apple-pie" agenda when he has demonstrated no regard for the American worker, our healthcare mess, or our jobs?   The front door looks good, but the back door is something else.   We work for big corrupt unethical corporations who require us, in our case,  the lowly transcriptionist, to declare our integrity, and almost every day we hear scandal after scandal from these mega corporations who only get a slap on the hand for their unethical practices.   I don't know about you, but it does bother me to work for or with a company that has no integrity.   I'm not saying I work for one now, but it bothers me that so many people have to do so to keep food on the table. 
apple juice !
supposedly a natural stimulant, and it works pretty well for me in a pinch.
Apple - Just Rotten!
Puns inside the post down a bit.  Better than this rotten Apple pun.  Fun!

We're in the process of making a cookbook at our church, and I put this one in. My MIL makes it, and it is so good!
how D as in David A as in apple

R as in Robert E as in elephant you complain about an a resident! Hasn't he earned the right to be here (just like the ESL's you came to love). I'm sure his ancestors were ESL's, right?

How's it feel to have someone blast your chance to vent a little?

Sounds like a bad apple.
say it is indicative of all MTs, just this one with a very unprofessional attitude. Maybe she has mental or emotional problems. I would cut her loose.
Probably mode of arrival (nm)
Safe mode sm

Have you tried to delete program under safe mode?  That is your best option right now. 

Also, when you said you accessed task manager and you have 37 running, do you mean processes running?  Because if you will under task manager, you have "applications, processes, performance, users, etc." 

Oops, meant to ask first, what operating system do you have? 

Let me know.  I will be in and out of this site, so it may take me a bit to get back to you. 

Going to safe mode now
Just found a site that walked me through how to try the safe mode route. Hope it works... I don't have my laptop backed up for work yet!
As for 37 task managers, that's what I meant, as if I had pushed ctrl/alt/dlt 37 times. Lots of other processes running, but 37 task managers open (that were not there before). I think the gremlins were having a party!
And I have Windows XP. Wish me luck and hopefully I'll talk to y'all tomorrow. Thanks for all your help.
Try it in safe mode...sm

Shut down the computer.  As soon as you turn it back on, begin pressing the F8 key repeatedly.  You should come to a black and white screen with an option of starting in safe mode.  Arrow down to this option and press 'Enter'.  The computer will then start in safe mode.  Try it from there.  Hope this helps. 

Thanks, Apple. I'll check it out! nm
Yep. It's the Adam's apple dictators
LMAO - she's really going into insanity mode on this one!
Tell me, now Ms. Mensa.

My uncle is a mensa member and is chief of staff at a large hospital where he was an ER physician for years, moved up to being department head and then ultimately his current position.

You, the genius you are, are an MT.

You're full of it.
"Overtype mode" in Word...
What the heck do I keep hitting on my keyboard to throw Word into "overtype mode"?  I then have to go in and "uncheck" the overtype mode box.  Whatever I'm inadvertantly hitting, it happens quite a lot.  Guess I should slow down.  It's so annoying.  If I knew what it was, I could remap the keyboard to avoid this.  Any ideas?  TIA!!
Have you tried removing it in safe mode?
From a cold start, press F8 at 1-second increments until you get a DOS list of startup options. Once in safe mode, attempt to remove, then restart as you would normally and it should come up in normal mode. If you have xp, set a restore point first in case removing this program causes other programs not to work.
Apple & cinnamon oatmeal and water 8-) nm
crab apple jelly don't know recipe.
Thanks. I guess it is just goes to R.B. (I'm still in Exp. Scribe mode where you have to hand-
Make sure you don't have it in express or economy mode.
Is it faint all over consistently or is it uneven? If it's consistently faint, go to your Start Menu, Control Panel, Printers and Faxes, right click on Dell Printer 720, Properties, General, Printing Preferences, and make sure Quality/Speed isn't set on Quick Print. If that doesn't fix it, post again and we'll try something else. You may have to put in a new cartridge.
If printer in typing mode, then I should not have any trouble
seeing the letters- the words on the page can be at 120, so big 1 line does not fit on the page; however when printing off, the words are so miniscule you can hardly read. That is the problem, can anyone help?
Does anyone edit in vertical or portrait mode?
Do you have any trouble with your mouse? I checked my graphics card and it is doable.
Safe mode didn't work. Aaaggghhh!!
Still can't get McAfee all the way off my computer (I guess because maybe it's damaged now and trying to protect what it has left). What if I just put another antivirus on here in addition? Under security, it says there is no antivirus detected on my computer, so in my (simple) mind, that means it should be okay, right? Even though when I tried to put the other antivirus on, it told me I needed to take McAfee off first. Under add/remove programs, when I try to remove McAfee, it simply freezes my computer and I have to "end task" manually.
Keep a shallow bowl of apple cider vinegar on the counter.
This is something my mom did - worked for her, works for me. I set a small, shallow bowl of vinegar on the back of the stove or tucked into a corner on the cupboard. It cuts the odor down to almost nothing and keeps it gone. Plus, it's a whole lot cheaper than the over-perfumed stuff from the store.
Southwestern chicken and rice, corn nuggets, sweet tea and brownie ala mode for dessert! nm
f8 is called extend mode. I meant Shift right and left arrows only highlight characters. sm
You can find more help about extend mode in Word's help file.
No flame from me.....
I agree.  Kids need to learn to seek out the proper people on  their own, with guidance  of course.  If the parents only allows controlled hand picked social contacts, how do you learn that skill?  People who homeschool for religious  reasons are the worst for this.  They only let their kids associated with like-minded people.  Unfortunately the world isn't like that.  I believe that the way to raise well-rounded children is to give them plenty of attention and supervision  at  home, train them about morals and make your expectations clear.  Then as they grow, they venture forth a little more as they get older, slowly separating from being under the  parental wing.  I think teenagers need a parent in the home almost more than little ones,and that is why I work at home.  A good education can be had  in almost any school.   It's there for the taking.  The real world doesn't cater to you, your  needs, your desires, or  your preferences.  A full-time job isn't finished in 3 hours (like the abbreviated day many homeschoolers boast about).   It's about being there on time, sticking to it even though you  may not feel like it, and  getting along with people  you may not care for, and avoiding those who are not good  for you.   Just my 2 cents.
Please do not take this as a flame, but
talking about 65-character count lines, and I believe hospital transcription. If I am not mistaken, you have said before that you count gross lines and clinic transcription, which is a whole different ball game. I too transcribe clinic dictation and count gross lines, and would much rather do this as it is much easier to produce and make money in this environment.
No flame taken
I have often tipped my hat to these guys, was just trying to put a little humor into things today.   I took one road and they took the other.  Have done the hosptital, teaching hospital and realize the complexity of it.  But I have worked hard to get my accounts and keep them also. 
What does the really (looks like a yellow flame) mean by the postings?
A flame happens
after a post has been looked at a certain number of times. I has nothing to do with the types of responses you get to your post. It's all about the number.
No flame here...
You should file a complaint with Animal Control in your county, even if you already filed with the police. Animal control can give summons (tickets), and also can get you a court date. I forgot what kind of court it is, but it deals with animals and trashy yards (environmental). If your hands and wrists are sore, you should tell the judge you couldn't type as fast and you work on production.
You should get some sort of compensation. The leash law is in place for a reason (your attack for example), and it doesn't matter if the owner is right there on their own property with their dog. If the owner could not restrain his dog, then the leash law was broken. I know this because I live in the country and my beagle was doing his business in my yard by my garage and Animal Control happened to drive by and stopped (what luck!). The officer said that I must have my dog on a leash, even though there wasn't another house in sight, and the beagle was too old and lazy to run anywhere!

I really feel for you; this should not be allowed to happen! You could also have been bitten. You need to report it to Animal Control so it doesn't happen to someone else! Animal Control is serious about enforcing the leash law. Good Luck!
What is the FLAME?
What does it mean when there is a flame next to your post?
What does it mean when messages have a yellow flame at the beginning of a message?  At first I thought it was because there were so many added posts after the first post, but I posted a message yesterday that I got no answers to, and this morning there is a flame in front of my post.  Does anyone know what this means?  Thanks.
the littel flame
okay, so I am new at all of this. what does the little "flame", blinking yellow signal mean.
Stone/flame me too
I believe the reason this was created is because all the newbies were whining that they cannot find jobs because you need experience and they couldn't get anyone to give them a break. This will be a false sense of an MTs ability if a company hires based on it. And just my opinion.
Off topic - please do not flame...
I will be moving to a smaller house (simplifying and paying off my mortgage in the process..yay!) and will need an Aerobed for guests. For those of you who own them, are they comfortable enough for an elderly person? I have seen some really high ones and see that you can now purchase a separate frame. Any thoughts? TIA.
hardy har-har... flame on!

The flame comes from the message
being viewed over 200 times. She did not put it there. duh.
No flame wars

I don't know what is wrong with you or some of the other people on this board.  I had the mistaken impression that we were all adults here and didn't engage in flame wars. 

Moderator please note that this is what occurs every time someone doesn't like what someone says and in this case makes no sense.  They are simply trying to start a flame war.

As for you, I made no call.  I left it blank because the only thing my AS says is no patient names.  I asked my team leader a long time ago about family members names and he got the answer from the hospital.  I've never come across this before in the medical field but let me tell you something, in education you do not discuss your student with another teacher who is not part of their education or this breaks confidentiality policy.  Since HIPAA is not just policy but a law, I used the same logic that the knowledge that this other patient is in the psych ward is only the business of HIS physicians and not this woman's and that to include HIS name in HER medical record would be questionable at best.  So I did the responsible thing and left it blank with a question mark which is procedure for all of my accounts.


What on earth is a flame war?
Are you referring to the flame next to posts on here? That just means they've been viewed a certain number of times.
It's a flame.... as in hot post -
It'll flame. I'm staying out of it.

If a post gets so many hits on it, it gets the flame.
Not sure what the magic number is though. 
Newbie to board - what is a flame? nm
No flame here, either ~ had the same thing happen
I was walking my dog on his leash and went past a house where their dog was just wandering in the yard and he came out after us.  It turned out okay, but that was the last time I went that route. 
Please don't flame me, I'm having an Alzheimer's moment, but what is the (sm)
basic 4.  I know it includes H&P, discharge summaries, and operations and procedures, but what is the 4th.  My brain is just not functioning today...it's my only day off and therefore I don't have to think right???  TIA
Flame you, why? Others love, you donít, simple.
