Our latest cat did that...

Not drink out of the toilet, but about a year ago, she disappeared.  She's inside 100% of the time, so she wasn't hard to find, but she was pulling back the blankets on the bed and hiding under all the covers.  Sure enough, she was sick and had to be put on antibiotics.  I'm sure she would have died if we hadn't taken her to the vet. I also had another cat quite awhile ago that hid whenever he got sick.


I hope your kitty comes home!  My husband said that when he was young, they had a cat that would roam and be gone for long stretches of time, but he always came home.


Actually, we have to keep up with the latest
technology, medical terms, etcetera, as well. We do not just go to school and learn everything at once. Things in medicine change often. Plus there are a million things you will learn throughout your career in this field as you go. It is a constant learning experience for both new and seasoned MTs.

Personally, if money were not an object like you said, I would spend my free time relaxing and enjoying being a new mom. If money is not an object, why find something to give yourself even more work? They are only babies once and will be grown in the blink of an eye...enjoy the time you have.
The latest with Keystrokes

New to this site.  Read something a while ago about Keystrokes not hiring.  Does anyone know anything about them now?  How are they to work for and how do they pay?  Thanks for any information, good, bad or ugly.


Did you see the latest picture of her (sm)

possibly pregnant, reading the junk magazines while going through the grocery store line?


So very, very few good or talented actors these days.  Give me Jerry Lewis or Bill Murray any day.  And actresses?  I can't even list any I like anymore besides Marily Monroe. 


the latest story

another MT friend of mine sent me this email


 My friend's daughter works in a dermatology office.  They are opening a new additional office.  They determined that with the opening of a new office, it was far better to now buy a system for transcribing their own documents and it also allows doctor to input the codes for billing.  So, they no longer need their Transcriptionist or their coder.  Their coder is going to do other duties at the office and their home transciptionist is SOL. 


So-if they had not opened a new office, they would not of put out for the money, but with the new additional office, this system will be taking care of the 2 jobs above for both offices.  Doctor was most definitely considering sending all of this kind of work to India, as he is from India, but when the American office manager found this out, she put a stop to it immediately.  So-that is my horror story for the week that makes me have even more knots in my stomach. 

I'm on their latest upgrade right now..sm..
so it's still buggy. I origiinally bought it in December of 2005. That version was worse than the upgrade I installed Saturday. I won't bother uninstalling and reinstalling after reading your email. Thanks for writing.
I've tried ByteScribe and ExpressScribe and the sound isn't as clear on them, especially when you slow down or fast forward so I'll either stick with StartStop and not use the hot keys or I'll try an external sound card for my laptop with the ByteScribe WavPlayer. I've tried the Turtle Beach Audio and that helped make things louder but it didn't help with the slow down and speed up sound clarity.
Is there anyway you can go back to the original version? If you have the original installtion CD, I would think you could. I don't since I bought it originally in Dec. 2005. Thanks again for writing.
Stedman's does the same thing. With the latest

electronic word books, you can only download 2 times.  I have 2 computers and I download to both, in case something happens I have a backup.  I also tend to have computer issues for some reason and when I try to do a reinstall of the OS it doesn't keep my Stedman's.  Since I can only download twice that makes me not able to use it.   I tried to company all Stedmans to a BUS drive in case I had to restall again, but it won't work and you can't copy from one computer to another, you have to have the original disk.    


I'm not thrilled with it, but I don't think they are doing anything illegal. 


The latest InScribe from Emdat sm
Will work with my USB Infinity pedal as I have just set it up. It will also run with InstanText. QUITE the upgrade from the Emdat I tried to use about 6 or 7 yrs ago I can tell you that. It is MUCH better, user friendly and I think I'll be more productive on it.


doggone, looks like it's the latest version now
I had the same problem, thanks for posting the link. But I downloaded it and it was v.4.15 again! I downloaded Switch and that won't work either.

It's beginning to look a lot like they don't WANT it to work with .dss anymore!
The Latest Word...found it!
It's published by Elsevier. To find the link, just Google The Latest Word. It's only a couple of hits down the search results list. I wasn't able to copy the web site address, since it came in as an RSS feed (ignorant about that). But it's at www.elsevier.something.

In some cases, I think religion is just their latest addiction.
Didn't Stephen Baldwin used to have substance abuse issues? Seems like some of these people just trade in the substance for religion and pursue it with the same enthusiasm.
Oh, like your latest joke wasn't gross
on the Comedy board!

LOL.
Lately, every week I'm having a techie problem. My latest

is the sound on my computer cuts out for no reason. I just started doing VR this week and the sound disappears. It's not just the program. It's the whole computer. If I reboot, it's back.


I also noticed that, although the work load is heavy, I'm out of work around the same time every day for about an hour or two.  Then I'm okay for the rest of the day.


Please don't tell me it's my computer. I can't afford another one at this time of the year.


Please don't tell me it's my sound card...the computer is only 1-1/2 years old.


I have 512 MB RAM. Do you think this is too little for VR? It never happened when I was doing regular transcribing.


Any ideas?


Thanks,S


The latest version sent to me in a link by company is 4.91.309 (must have just come out) sm
I haven't been told anything specific as far as the pedal. All I know is that the new version of InScribe does not support an outside player such as Express Scribe, Gearplayer, etc., and plays directly from the program itself.

From what I can tell, it either will use a regular USB pedal, or it may require a specific pedal just for InScribe that works identical to the "F" keys. I'm just not sure if there is really a difference in the two and was hoping someone would be able to help. The regular USB pedal is cheaper than the specific one I found for InScribe.

Apparently the tech folks at EMDAT are off today, as no one has answered my e-mail regarding this.

Thanks.
The latest version of ES does work with Vista.

On this tight budget, I do not have cable. What is the latest on Katrina?
The message boards have disintegrated into name calling and absurdity.  My local stations are not running any news.  What is going on down in New Orleans?  It is 5:41 PST here and I have just read on a message board they are predicting 10,000 deaths?  Surely this is not so
AAMT site is under contruction. Maybe the latest issue will
Haha
Follow link to latest AAMT funny

and see what they are up to now.  I think Brenda H. is trying to get the doctors to talk more plainly so the off-shore accounts can understand them better.  HA - HA.


Be sure to look at very bottom of the article.  For more information please check out AAMT.........  What a bunch of garbage.  While the context of the article is true, it is the source of the article that is a fake ...... Good Grief.

Latest Instant Text revision 541 and MS Word

Has anyone noticed Word save and opening of new documents slow down since upgrading to IT Revision 541 or is it just me?  I tried other things, such as clean disc, defrag, ran System File Check for Windows XP, and Registry Cleaner.  These things helped speed up everything on my computer except Word, which would still be very slow to save and open a new document.


 


I uninstalled IT and reinstalled the older version and now Word is back to normal speed.  Has anyone else experienced a slow down with the revision or is it just me?  I also didnít like how the new version linked with spelling and grammar check window in Word.


 


It's probably just me.  I'm always having weird problems.  I'm using Word 2002 (XP) by the way.

According to the latest Plexus journal entitled "Planning Your exit" ....
even editing may soon be a thing of the past. I don't have the journal, but I have heard about at least one article making the point that, even though the unedited reports produced by physicians using VR are atrocious, the quality (or lack thereof) is beginning to be acceptable anyway with seemingly no concern about the how the poor quality of these reports might impact patient safety or quality of health care. The article makes the observation that this trend may be the harbinger of the death of our profession, hence the title, "Planning Your Exit." Anyone have the journal and, if so, can you share more of what it has to say?
GearPlayer 4 plays .sri files. That the latest version, and it is great! nm

I have had a check bounce over a boo-boo in the check book...NOT A DEADBEAT!!

DID you check with Social Security& does your son receive a check???

Go to SSA.gov and research the payee options.  You may have to use the search engine, but your answer to this particular issue should be there.


I am disabled and while my kids were minors, I had to fill out a form each year on how I, as the payee spent each and every penny of the money they received.  I don't see how his mother can justify how she spent his money for things that you normally would pay.


That said, he is getting Social Security right?  Is your son receiving a dependent check?  Under law, if a parent is disabled and has minor children, each and every one of those children also receive a check until they turn 18 or graduate from high school, which ever comes first.


The check is a percentage of your husbands, so for 800.00, your son should receive at least 350.00.  If you have not been getting this, they would pro-rate it back to when your husbands disability started and that in itself, could solve a lot of your financial problems.  You can also find this out on their website,  HTH


Hayseed - What's the latest on the Mira and Aeron chairs? Did you get to try out the Aeron chair

The butterfly type back support?  Can't remember the exact name for it.  Do you think the chairs are worth the money?   Thanks.



 


no - don't check out wildblue. check out hughesnet. sm
i was on wildblue. i absolutely HATED it. i paid $400 for install and equipment and bill was $51.51 a month for smallest plan. no bills, had to be direct debit from credit card or bank. wasn't a lot faster than dial up and i frequently went over my download limit so i had to upgrade to the $80/mo plan. speed was no faster on their "fastest plan". they had a 1-yr contract and only 1-yr warranty. well 20 days (kid you not) out of warranty my tria (the eye on the dish) went out and it cost me a total of $275 for replacement and tech call (had to wait a week and a half before tech could come and then he no showed and rescheduled for the next day stating he didn't have the equipment he needed to fix me and the repair order had been in for over a week by that time. no call to say he wasn't coming either, just no showed). they TRIED to sell me the entire package all over again to get me locked into another 1-yr contract and i declined. it was best in their book so your warranty and equipment would be "new". i had to tell them for 5 months to change which credit card to debit from, never could get it right. had to tell them for 3 months when my phone number changed. i could not wait until the day my 1-yr contract was over. have heard really good things about hughesnet. i think it is a tad more a month, but supposedly a lot faster than wildblue and not near as many problems from what i have heard from others. wildblue was down for an entire week at one point throughout the year i was on it. always got lost signals and page cannot be found multiple, multiple times throughout the day. i used wildblue with VPN (with transtech) and could not keep a connection enough to get a decent line count as i was dropping signals too much and it did slow it way down. i finally got clinic work rather than acute care where time and speed wasn't a factor. research message boards for complaints about wildblue and hughesnet before deciding. also hughesnet i think told me a 2-yr warranty rather than only the 1-yr with wildblue.

your dictionary or autocorrect and see if it is set to capitalize the first letter in a sentence.


i think it is just that, though, an annoyance. 


Thank you! Will check them out now.

My check was for over $400, but certainly does not
come close to the money I have lost since going on docqscribe.  I think corporate should provide us with the statistics they used to arrive and this amount.  The @#$#@ crooks!
Thanks, I will check that out. You would
think that would be illegal (to pay for one line count and bill for another) so they would be a little more discreet......
Check for DQS
Wonder if the discrepancy in pay on DQS is MQ wide or just certain regional offices cause I havent gotten anything yet and I dread having to contact my TC.  Does anyone know?
Why did you get a check$?
and nobody told us?

MQ DEP check ?

Anyone heard from their MQ office what this check amount was based on and why it wasn't direct deposit like others if you are on direct deposit??


MQ DEP check
reason it wasn't DD, my opinion, is that if we cash it, we are "settling" any past underpayments. It has to do with the lawsuit. I my check yesterday, and I will deposit it probably. By my cashing it, I did not sign or agree to anything and the letter doesn't state anything about dismissing them from any further legal action. I think they sent the checks to make them look good, like they are trying to be honest and forthright about the discrepancies. A little late...
What check?
I have been with MQ for 14 years and I never got this check, is it for everyone?
check
emailed payroll and asked for a detailed printout of how this figure was derived and she said that corporate told her that it would take probably 2-3 weeks (you and I both know it's probably more like 2-3 months). we have a right to know how it was gotten and if I were you I'd do the same so that they know that we're just not a bunch of dummies who just take what they give us without an explanation that will satisfy us.
MQ check
I only glanced at the letter that came with the check but it said something about the DQS counting making mistakes and they were "sorry for any inconvenience this caused."   Not a word about there never being enough WORK to matter whether the counting was right or not.  Prior to DQS in 7 years I NEVER ran out of work.  Didn't hang around long enough to see if their promises were true that we would soon be making so much money that we couldn't spend it all. LOL
check
"legally" any company has the right to withhold payment for 30 days. I found that out by accident, as well. ... through a company also in California. I would suggest, after attempting a telephone conversation first, that you speak with a lawyer and begin litigation. You are owed what you did work for. Good luck to you.
