How about a waterbed repair kit or a bike repair kit?
Gerald Ford (nm)
If you both worked for Ford & she had on her
Can that program be "repaired" over there where you go to start, etc. and see all your software. Sometimes some software has a "repair program" thing you click on and it makes the program work again. If not, then I heard that we have to re-install. All programs don't have that feature though.
Since you mentioned Ford, I have a 2005
and so far, I love it! I really can't think of too much that I don't like about it, other than wishing I had gotten a few options that I didn't think I would need until after the fact. We actually went to the dealership looking for an Escape, but it was just too small for us. My 12-yo could barely fit in the back seat, so I knew he'd grow out of it too quickly, and we do drive some long distances in our vehicles so comfort is of the utmost importance.

It runs well and seats 5 comfortably and also has another back seat that seats 3 more, though we haven't used that much except for adults, only for kids (one 12-yo) and they are comfy back there -- there are actually wells that go under the front seats to provide additional foot room and never had any complaints so far. It's my first 4x4 and I'm loving that in the snow. I also like that it maneuvers very well in parking lots. It has a real tight steering range and I can get out of just about any parking space even if it's crowded.

I have known a lot of people how had problem with Fords, but we decided to go for it because we got it when they were offering employee pricing plus a $4,000 rebate. Just couldn't beat the price! I think Ford fixed a few of the bugs from the earlier models with the 2005 and up, namely the addition of the stability control, which provides better stability and traction to prevent rollovers.

I've owned a lot of GM vehicles before this and I had trouble with every single one. I had a Dodge Caravan prior to my Explorer and I loved it. Never had a problem with it and had it for 5-1/2 years. If Dodge had been offering the pricing discounts, we probably would've opted for a Durango, but I have to say that I am extremely happy so far with my Explorer, though I have only had it for about 9 months now.
1972 Ford Pinto.

So if I work for Ford, I should not post that on
We met where I worked, he came in to repair the TEM in the lab - sm
I found him attractive (and was pretty sure he had been attracted to me) but was seeing someone at the time (Plus he lived in MD 2 hours away)--6 weeks later I was "free again". I happened to ask our usual service guy about him about a month later.....called him that night, engaged 4 months later, married 10 months after that....9 years so far!
thanks for the repair site
Wow! I'm so happy to know of a repair business for my Lexmark SelectEase split keyboard. (They even specifically list this as one they will fix for $45!) I had forgotten the model name, but that's it. I believe IBM bought out Lexmark at one point and continued making the same keyboard.
Lanier repair?
I have a Lanier LX-219-1 with the extended screen, and all of the backlighting is out. Does anyone know of ANYONE who repairs these? I live in the Sacramento, CA area but might be willing to ship out to someone reliable.
Not only do they repair, they can suggest, and
We gave DH a new Ford ZX2 for her 16th birthday,
and then the next year got her a new Mustang for high school graduation. She used the Mustang throughout college and just sold it several months ago.

I felt better with her driving a new car in mint condition than an old clunker, especially since she was at school hundreds of miles away with no one to help her if she had car trouble.
Definitely NOT my first car, a used 1974 pea green Ford Pinto.
Love my 2005 Ford Mustang!...
2005 Ford Mustang - Vroom! nm
Kevin Costner. I forgot about him. Harrison Ford.
During their heyday I loved them both.  Harrison Ford in interviews was so charming and so cute.  He is aging pretty well.  Haven't heard much from Kevin Costner.  Both are cute and charming but not necessarily handsome in the traditional way.
Need C-phone repair in Los Angeles area.
Do you know anyone who repairs C-phones in the 323 area code in Los Angeles.  Thanks in advance.
Need expansions for both mitral valve repair
If there are any computer repair shops in your area sm

Go to one that is reliable (ask around) and ask them to build you a computer to your specifications. It costs about the same as buying a new computer, and you can get EXACTLY what you want. If you already have a copy of Windows XP, they can put that on the computer they are building (I would advise keeping XP for at least one more year, until Vista works all the bugs out and more companies are Vista-compatible).

As for peripherals like a monitor, printer, etc., you can either keep the ones you have now, see what price the computer place will give you, or catch them on sale at Wal-Mart or one of the computer superstores.

Better still, if you have a friend who is handy with computers, he/she can do the same thing for you. It is just a matter of buying the components and putting them together. My husband has rebuilt and upgraded my computer several times. The one time I did buy a brand new computer, I took it back within a week. It drove me CRAZY!!!

Took first part of computer repair class. sm
Taking second part in April. Already been offered internship when I complete the class.
1965 Ford Mustang and a 1977 Chevy corvette
along with the 1997 Intrepid. The Stang is mine and the vette is hubby's. He got them real cheap (under $4000.00 for both) and fixed them up.
I have never had a hernia repair either, but I have done transcription for general surgeons for 14 y
They usually tell people to plan on 4-6 weeks depending on the lifting requirements of their job. Have you asked your surgeon yet? They should be able to give you a good estimate.
Find computer repair store in your town

I haven't read through all the replies, so forgive me if this is a duplicate answer.  Find a computer repair store in your town.  Many times they will take off Vista and reload XP - for a cost, certainly, but it can be done.

Vista isn't bad, it's just that there is so much out there that is not compatible with it yet.  It's a pain, to be sure.

My next computer is going to be a Mac.

Used to own a Suburban, loved that truck. Have ridden in Ford trucks and SUVs

Awesome! Here, a local computer repair shop has a similar commercial. Its really funny. nm
Might be able to rent one from an office supply or office machine repair shop
This is what I use daily


This site lets you type in three or more letters of the drug, and it pulls up everything with those letters.  It's great for when you only hear part of the drug.


Daily work is exactly what the word DAILY means --> work that comes in on a daily basis.  No days pass by without an empty queue.

I must be with the wrong companies then.

By chance is this MT Daily?
Not everyone comes to this board daily!
Are we not allowed to ask questions if they've been asked before? I understand this is the main board but people complain on the company board too if you ask about a company already posted about. Maybe those people can just skip over the posts and keep going, onto another message board preferably! Sheesh.
How many authors do you have daily?

I'm with a small MTSO and for quite a while have been on an account with about 10 doctors, mostly ESL.  I was very comfortable with them.  I have been trained on three accounts, one with maybe 6 and then another very large account, but they kept me primarily on this account.

Recently I was switched to one of the other accounts - no ESL, but this last pay period I had 38 different authors!!  Am having a hard time getting comfortable, and there's other problems , but for this post I just was hoping to find out, on average how many authors are others doing?

Maybe I was really lucky before with just 10 docs - ?

Usually 2 hours daily.
Today I clocked 2 hours 33 minutes and I can honesly say I'm beat!  Almost solid H&Ps and D/C summaries too...so finger-saving normals.  Blech!
I would still flag it - he said twice daily not

Daily digest
What's the daily digest?  I had not heard of that.  How do we sign up for it?
I add things daily. sm
I have been an MT and had an Expander for nine years, and i still add things on a daily basis. Not only cos I still run into new stuff daily, but also because your mind thinks of more and more complex things to put in there as you go.

Back when I started, all I thought about was long words and two-word phrases, maybe some longer phrases. I was happy with that. But then as i went typing happily along, I discovered I could do much more -- put entire sentences in, put formatting in, create entire pick lists, call up macros, call up websites, call up templates, the list goes on and on.

How do I remember them? Well, first I realize it's missing by actually typing in the short I think would make sense if it was in there. If it's not there, I put it in. Then maybe the next time I run into that phrase, I think, "hmm, have I entered this before?" and i try out the short that would make the most sense to me (at that time of course, which could be completely different than the first time!) And if it's there, yeah! I just saved myself some keystrokes!

I also just switched to IT and about once a month I run an enrichment on my doctors to get the most out of what they say.
what is daily work?
If it's never running out, being able to work the hours you want to work and still making a decent paycheck, then yes I have daily work.
The Daily Typo: - (sm)

What was dictated:   "He had normal fundi bilaterally."

What I typed:  "He had normal FUNGI bilaterally."

Mental image that conjured up:   Dude with large mushrooms sprouting out of his ears!     

Do you currently post on MT Daily or read it?

I was thinking about paying the $48 but then I thought there are only limited amount of people who will pay so probably not as good as MTStars.  It was fun though before they started charging and if they only charged half as much they would draw more people.  $48 is way high when other boards are free.

Just some daily walking would probably shake it for you, too. nm
? lidopine bis-a-late 10 mg daily
Anyone heard of this.  I posted on word board but got no help.  Need STAT.
I change mine daily
I use td for today's date and yd for yesterday's date and I just change them every day.
MSN used to send me daily e-mails SM
telling me every single website they had been to.  But this would only work if they sign in under their own name and not "borrow" mom or dad's name! 
pt does get her mammagram daily. LOL ouch sm


G2, P2.  Her pregnancies were uncomplicated.  She has not seen a gynecologist in over two years, but she does get her mammogram daily.    Uhhh.... I don't think so Mr. MD!!!   You couldn't get me to do that daily if ya paid me!

well, 4 times daily as needed...yep. i think so!
it doesn't have to be taken 4 times a day just as needed.

If you don't speak on a daily basis . . .
We speak several times daily.
Even right now while he's overseas on a business trip, we make time for a couple daily phone calls.
I'm with you ... I get enough reality just with my daily living. sm

Kinda nice to get lost and just veg with my Law & Order and CSI addictions :)

Obviously, I'm in the minority since they seem to come up with more and more reality shows .... I admit to watching the Biggest Loser a couple of times, but I can't imagine being "hooked" and watching it all of the time, sitting on the edge of my seat. 

I work with SR on a daily basis, and I can tell you...sm
...it will NOT be replacing human intelligence, now or 10 years from now or 50 years from now. The files we work on come from a VERY expensive speech recognition system and the quality is very poor. SR cannot handle punctuation well at all, doesn't know when to stop and start sentences, has problems with capitalization, and ironically enough, when the doctor actually spells something out, that totally confuses SR!

But even if technology advances to the place where speech recognition can accurately reproduce every word and sound that comes out of a doctor's mouth, so what? That STILL will not replace human MTs, because doctors do not always say what they mean, or even when they DO say what they mean, what they mean is not right! We're the only ones who can clean up that mess.

It gave him daily headaches. nm
What reference do you use the most on a daily basis? SM

I lost all my reference books in a fire and I can't afford to replace them all at once.  I am buying a couple of books each pay check and I've been trying to decide what I need the most.  So far I have gotten a Dorland's Medical Dictionary, Surgical Word Book, and Radiology Word Book because I do radiology a couple of times a week. 

So to all you acute care MTs out there, what books do you find yourself using on a daily basis?

I use my old faithful PRD with it daily, no problems. sm
Chartscript looks scary at first, but it's the easiest thing to use once familiar with it.
