that's what it stands for?
I never knew what AHDI stood for, it stands for ass for healthcare document in INDIA!!!! or is that just a joke.

No, I think it stands for -
Association of Hindi-speaking Dufuses, Inc.
I think the "R" actually stands for reserved. nm
SM stands for see message
I simply believe in God and what he stands for..
I can't really say I am a Christian or any other particular faith. I know you have very strong convictions and I think it is wonderful, but isn't it funny how we follow and obey the bible in some instances and don't in others. The bible is a guide for us to live by. If we took it seriously, women would be in dresses, men would be working, women would not, women would have long hair, etc. Actually, Halloween is a religious day.. "The festival of Halloween is based on a combination of the Christian commemoration of the departed faithful (All Saints' Day) with the pre-Christian Celtic feast associated with a celebration of the end of summer and the Celtic New Year."

Want to know what BOS stands for? Oh yeah,
No, it stands for Screw Subcontractors!

DVI stands for Digital Voice something, I

can't remember.  I use this system.  My company provided my foot pedal/software.  I think the company has to provide the software, as I've never seen a single user software available.   Foot pedal will be $60-$80 depending on where you get it, may be able to find on e-bay cheaper.  

Do a Google search for DVI compatible foot pedal.  I don't recommend TVPS.com.

Thank you, but I'm quite aware what HIPAA stands for.
That's why it bothers me is because so many people have it wrong. Obviously, the MTSO doesn't care about quality if she can't even get it right. What's the skin off your nose if it bothers me? Why does it bother you that it bothers me? I don't need to get over it. I'm quite happy being bothered by it. Bother, bother, bother.
The industry is changing and as it stands

now I would not recommend this field to anyone, but I am not worried about not having a job, at least not in the next 5 years.  I am good at what I do and can do any work type, can do ESLs with little problem, have done QA, so I feel like there will always be a job as long as I want it.  The pay may never get any better though. 

There aren't that many jobs available, but there are so many people looking for work that a lot of companies don't feel like they need to pay to advertise.   Check with employment agencies or temporary agencies.  I worked for  temporary agency years ago and got offered full-time positions with every place I worked.

Not sure what your career of choice is in, but you can get just about any degree on-line, or at least do all the basic courses. 

Not sure of your financial situation, but if still paying for technical school, going part-time probably won't work for you so you could go to school or get in some type of internship for whatever you wanted to do.   

You can sit back and wait for someone to knock on your door and offer you your dream job, but you'll most likely die waiting, or you can get your goal and work towards it.  If you aren't willing to do that, then you are stuck where you are. 

Taylor looks constipated when he stands still
Focus stands for Foreign

Focus is an Indian company, you know.  Most who have been there were not happy, and many MTs only go there because they are fresh out of school and find it hard to get the experience they need.  Just FYI.

Oh, man. The things I am thinkin' BD stands
No you're not wrong but my statement stands too
If it was your daughter missing and the media basically concentrated on a demographic other than yours, you'd be wondering why you can't get help for your daughter too. Media looks for sensationalism and the since outrage currently involves young children or affluent, pretty, white young adult females, that's what the media flocks to.
Maybe you are just uptight about one night stands? You should have stayed to the end.
FTP stands for file transfer protocol.

It is transferring files.  You log onto the FTP site using software, such as Core FTP Lite that is free, then you can upload and download files on the company's FTP server.

Here's the link to the free download of Core FTP Lite.


Ooops, my NM stands for nightmares in my expander, NM
MTSO stands for Medical Transcription
Service Owner and that is what Nationals are so, no, there is no difference. Not a dumb question at all!
FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol
It transfers voice files.
Sorry about that. It doesn't really matter what the "R" stands for. Please accept my apolog
being catty. Hope you have a good evening.
who uses chat?
Does anyone use the chat feature (upper righthand corner of this screen)? 
i don't think they have a chat but they do
sounds silly, I know, but I have no idea how to use the chat. would like to know, however. thanks.
No, how do you go to it?
Kept checking the chat room from about 7:00 till 8:00. Some one finally showed up, just the two of us. We had a nice chat. Hope some one else picks a time and more can make it. Hope to see more of you there next time.
May be that was it. Of course, your're never gonna get every one to agree on a time. By all means, lets try again.
I have had a heck of a time trying to sign in. It keeps telling me I cannot post a link and I am not trying to post a link. Can anyone help me? I would love to join some other MTs in a Chat room.

I've read some of the responses to the chat room. I suggested 7:00 EST, some one else suggested 8:00 for those on the west coast. Tonight was mentioned as a good time for at least one.

My suggestion would be to pick a time, say 8:00 on the west coast, every night. Those that can make it will be there and those that cannot make it on any given night would be assured some one would be there the next night they tried. Once enough discovered the place and how much fun it can be, possibly there would be enough interest to have 1 or 2 almost every night.

For those who arn't sure what I'm talking about - at the top of the page, right side is a link "chat room." Click on that and you should be good to go.

This is just a suggestion. If not interested, ignore. Otherwise, hope to see some folks this evening 8:00 west coast time. (Unless some one has a better time that would work for most).



Anyone interested in meeting in the chat room 7:30ish tonight?
i didnít even realize there was a chat room until this post!!! i am so out of the loop...
new to MT and new to chat
I've never chatted before... seems a little weird.  I have a 3yo son whom I have never had to put in day care.  Trying to not to; but my husband's pressuring me to get a job.  I don't mind; but I'd rather try to keep my son with me... so I'm interested in finding out how to do this... I used to do transcription at a hosp about 5 yrs ago... I still type 82 wpm.  do I still need to get a foot pedal or is that ancient hx?  Is there any recommended/required softward needed to purchase to begin?  How do I do invoicing and line counts?  It seems a bit overwhelming... do I need to take a course?  Is it something I can do at night and at nap times when my son is asleep?  How demanding are the docs?  How approachable?  I'm scared but excited to try it once I'm armed with a little more info...thanks!
will be on here prob another hour or so...i am logged into the chat room if anyone wants to meet up

I can't get on chat, is it just me or is it not working right now?

Thank you!
The Chat section is closed/discontinued on MTStars.com due to constant abuse of the System (Deliberate Trolling, Abusive Language, Profanity etc.).

Administration has no plans to restore this feature in near future.

chat room
On the main board, menu on the left says "chat". I have clicked on it several times and it always says no one in the room.
Chat rooms. sm
Does anyone ever go into the chat room(s). I have checked there at least a dozen times on different days at different times of the day and have never found anyone in there.
In AOL chat room.

Anyone else having trouble getting into chat? (sm)
For some reason I can't get into chat anymore to see if anyone is there.  I've tried to resign up and it always tells me I have to use 6 letters in the password...when I've even used 9 and it still tells me I have to have more than 6 letters.  I'm about to give up.  I used to be able to get into it for for the last few weeks...not.

Just wondering why there is so few in chat room.  Whenever I go to chat, no one is there.

chat room


Wondering if anyone wants to get together in the chat room.  LOL, that sounds a little scary.  No seriously, I am always looking to see if anyone is in the chat room and never a person there.  Anyone interested in meeting in there for some chatting?

Chat room
I would be interested, may be we could get a group together at a specific time and share experiences?

Chat room
Everyone agrees they want to chat, but no one sets a time/place. Rather than private e-mails, lets set a time here for all to see. Tonight would have been good for me, but no one else committed. Possibly if a time were posted here, as the time approached more would check in. Let's try it. Tomorrow night 01/01/2007, 7:00 EST?
Did't Know There Was a Chat Room!!
Chat room
