headers and footers
I just read in the MPCount info that it does not count headers and footers. Is that a bad sign?
Not OP, but I get paid for headers and footers.
And most often headers, footers, & copies are not
most companies don't pay for headers, footers, cc. (nm)
Want to get paid for headers, footers and spaces?

Just in a silly mood.... 

11 cpl, 65 line w/spaces. No headers/footers except
Usually it's the software not counting headers/footers, or any of the
headers, footers, word count
I am an newbie IC and just started a new Dr. when I realized that MS word does not count headers and footers with word count.  Any way you can include headers/footers in the word count or do you have to count it all separately and then add them together?
I would say that if you are typing headers and footers for free, i.e. not getting paid for them,
11-1/2 cpl, 65 ccl, all spaces, headers, footers, etc. NE part of country. nm
Not included. Demos and ccs are headers/footers. Not counted. nm
Oh absolutely! I would get 9 or 10 lines of headers and footers per report on Cottage. sm
So, if you do the math, if I typed 25 reports that day, that makes a total of 250 LINES I no longer get paid for! I truly believe DQS is just a sneaky, smart way that MQ has come up with in order to squeeze line counts and money from under us. Think about it. It is!!! No doubt in my mind, ladies!!

I want to quit to freakin bad this DQS crap! I am making so much more LESS money on DQS it isn't even funny. We should really smarten up about this program.

Also, how about the way you have to look up cc's and addressess and then put it into that stupid ADT field and then you DON'T GET PAID FOR IT!! MAKES ME SICK!

Okay. Done ranting and raving for the day! Let me go look for another job right now.
could be short reports and getting paid for headers/footers in a 10-hour day.
I stand corrected. Sorry, did not mean to say gross. Rather, 65 cpl with spaces, headers, footers.
I tried Slycount and it didnt count the text in headers and footers
I tried Slycount and it didn't count the text in headers and footers after the 1st page. Apparently its a problem with upgraded versions of MS word 2003 and there isn't a fix yet for this problem. If you don't use headers and footers than its a good program. I currently use Spellex AccuCount and its great :). I believe they have a free trial on there website. I Hope this helps :)
Maybe if it is gross lines, lots of headers and footers and normals......sm
Other than that, I really can't imagine it.
Is it customary to count headers/footers in this business when doing line counts? Thanks. nm
9 cpl, 65 characters per line, spaces, headers, footers included. employee status. nm
Offered a position paying 9 cents per 65 line without spaces with headers and footers.

Is this a good deal?

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!
Is this w/the built-in hand rest? Touch was nice, but the rest made my palms achey. Didn't

He can't carry a gun - He's a


Can't carry a tune
I can NOT sing either, but after a couple of drinks I will. I refuse to go alone or duet with a guy. I have found that going up in a group helps. You can still sing, but let other people help. I used to go often, but it has been awhile. I suggest trying it just once. In a group is the safest. It really is fun.
Dog doesn't carry a gun, none of his team does. sm
His story is actually very interesting. I know he is abrasive at first adn the wife is a real piece of work, but they really do try to help the people they round up. Dog is a born-again Christian, and he tries to help the people straighten their lives out, isn't in it just for the case. In fact, his own son is in jail for 20 years because of drugs, and so he has a personal motivation for getting drug dealers off the streets. I never miss the show, I find him inspiring because he found his nitch in the world to try to work for good. Unconventional, but he really sincerely tries.
Do any of you ICs out there carry your own liability insurance if
you are working for an MTSO?  I do not carry this insurance and was looking for what you all can advise me.  Thanks.
We carry the Philips 9850

i've done it recently as carry-on
and had no problems, not even any q's.
so glad it worked! Carry on! nm
That is just because it is the first posting, and the first company ad. Carry on down the list.
Do Office Max or Staples carry the ones you mentioned?
Those are the only two office stores we have within an hour drive of me. Which models in particular would you recommend??? I do need to keep the price down, whether I buy them or the doctor's office does.

I do appreciate your feedback. :)
Carry mace or pepper spray for this. (nt)

The reason I don't tip is because I NEVER have a dime on me. I don't carry cash, ever! I don&#
debit card and it's been like that for 4 years. I use a check or credit card for EVERYTHING!!!!!!!!!!!
You shouldn't have to carry dead weight.
Give her a clear outline of your expectations and say do this or I will have no choice but to find someone who will.
I guess Healthfood stores would carry these items.
I do not carry E&O insurance, but I do have my equipment covered under my HO policy.
My office is in my home and, God forbid, there should be a fire, I'd be out of business. I have coverage for my computer, printer, fax, phones and loss of use on a separate rider. Also, should anyone injury themselves coming or going from my office while doing business with me, their injuries are covered. Perhaps this is the information you're looking for.
I carry my laptop in a case with a shoulder strap and...sm
put my keyboard and foot pedal in my rolling luggage. it has worked fine so far. I will say that the next upgrade for me will be a much lighter weight smaller laptop.
to carry on a long drawn out thread on supervisor's woes below

Why in the world if it is so awful, so stressful, so thankless and pay is not that much more (someone posted $3 dollars an hour below), why do you continue to supervise?  


Also the general tone of the supervisors is kind of like they don't really like or respect the MTs.  Is that healthy?

Some of the craft stores like Michael's carry them in funky colors, too. nm
I carry my mail in, sort it immediately, and put the junk in the trash.
Google search shows TigerDirect and belkin.com both carry this. nm
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
Help with fax headers please

Hi....does anyone know how to turn off the fax headers in MS Word?  I found out how to do it years ago and then I got a new computer and now I have tried and tried and cannot figure out how to do it!

Just to clarify, I'm talking about when you use the fax wizard function in MS Word to send a fax, and that header comes out at the top of each faxed page with the time and phone number of who sent the fax etc.  How do I get that off my outgoing faxes???? PLEASE HELP! 

I have only been doing this for 11 months, so I do not know what it used to be like. I would have a suggestion regarding the headers. Use templates. If your company does not supply them, then you could make them up yourself, and you could also use an Expander for the headings. The other day I saw a job opening that stated you could do all reports in one document, but so far that has been the only one I have seen. I agree with lousy audio quality. I do not understand how come the MTSOs put up with the lousy quality and submit their MTs to it. I believe there needs to be much more done about the quality of the dictations, whether it is a fast dictator with loud background noise or just poor audio quality. So much more could be achieved by the American MT workforce if the quality of the dictations was better.

Most larger drug stores carry a selection of OTC braces and will order others, too. nm
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)
