I'd ask the local authorities to tell the MTSO to stop sending THEM on a wild goose chase! NM

Yes, call your local vet, any vet, and ask for the wild rabbit rescuer in your area.
There is always someone nearly everywhere. If you can't find one, please write me and I'll search for someone for you if you're short on time.  They are so worth saving.  Mom might still be around. Let's hope so! 
I just emailed Glenn Beck. Also sent to local radio station and CBS news. Now sending to my senato
If you are that slow, why don't you stop in some local doctor's offices, pt, chiropractic, etc
do their backlog?  That has always kept me extremely busy.
Local MTSO's here
only pay 6-8 cpl.  Some will not go higher than 7 cpl to start.  I was told by the owner of the company I work for now that she has had to cut some of her charges in order to get new accounts. 
For me, a very small local MTSO
doing tapes/office notes.
I'm helping a local MTSO out who is in a bind.

He uses Word and my company uses WP5.1.   He sent me some templates and I can pull those up, but there is some header information with patient name, etc. that is shaded gray and I can't get to that to enter the information and I don't know enough about Word to know what to do at this point.  The MTSO knows even less about Word than I do and the MT that did the account is out for surgery. 

I hope I'm making sense and someone can tell me what to do or what to go to look for the information.   I've done straight typing in Word using templates previously and I have not had to do any formatting, so this is all new to me.




I only have dial-up, I work for a small local MTSO -sm
that uses a FTP site to send us our work, so dial-up is just fine for that (work is about a 20 hour TAT, so it does not matter how long it takes for me to download my work, and uploads are quick. So obviously a job that has no set hours, etc. is ideal for someone with dial-up. Also get your own accounts, then it doesn't matter does it as you are the boss. I have 1 account of my own and we transfer the files via the internet through an intermediary website (in place of a FTP). Just keep hunting there are dial-up jobs out there.
Time to call the authorities and put this person out of business. no mess.
Goose Creek Symphony..nm
A $14 goose-neck lamp from Target, 40 watt bulb. SM
I have used this little lamp for years in the colder months. It has a nice opaque cover so doesn't give any glare. I tilt it way down so it is pointed right over the keyboard. Keeps my fingers toasty.

For my feet, I use one of those electric lap throws, right over my feet, the foot pedal and the big wooden shelf for the foot pedal that my sweetie built for me.

I don't like to heat the whole house and run up the bill so I try not to turn the furnace above 60 deg. My two little warming devices keep me really comfortable.

Chase also
Oh you should report that to Chase and to
Reeks of fraud.
Chase - Reported It - sm
Guess where the call was answered? India. Chase, just like all the other wonderful companies in the U.S., has telephone operators in India fielding the calls. She did nothing - told me it was a fraud, etc., and to ignore the emails. I get 3-4 of these every day. Now I'm deleting them. However, I informed the Indian representative answering Chase's calls that this is one bank I will NEVER bank with, due to offshoring! Off my soapbox now... I think!

Chase using India too?
No, just want to cut to the chase and avoid tne empty posts. nm
Got one too and knew it was a hoax because I have no Chase card.
When you don't have a card, you know it's a hoax.
We got the same email a couple of days ago -- DH called Chase and reported it and they said that it
was a huge problem for them right now as these people obviously have no affiliation with Chase. 
I wear wrist bands made by Chase Ergonomics, Inc. (sm)

They were given to me from a friend. He got them from work.  I also wear a Smart Glove at night. It has a brace on the top of the glove and beaded cushioning on the palm.

I also have a kinesis keyboard but haven't used it much yet. Too busy working to practice with it.

You can probably find all the above on ebay. That's where I found both the gloves and the keyboard.


Buy local. The local stores pay taxes to support your city and state. (SM)
Using online and catalogues does nothing to promote the local economy.  We complain about outsourcing and about the big companies gobbling up all the work so the jobs at local hospitals are gone, yet we do the same thing when we buy on ebay, catalog, and these web sites that may be located any place in the world as their primary business location. 
I went local. Great local tech support, they know what I do and were able to set it up just for me
wild life
Lets just leave the wild life alone, ya know?  *Man* has screwed enough up on this beautiful earth..Leave the wild life alone.
This is a wild guess
Do you think he means the children's cartoon character "Pokemon"? Maybe the patient thinks they're real, or maybe it's how he describes his family.
Wild stab
Assuming this is another MD who is reading a radiology report, I would expect he would say something along the lines of:

"Reviewing the CT scan, the current report demonstrates no free air or fluid, but the comment is really unchanged from previous CT scan."

That is just one possibility. Maybe if you are able to listen again, something will jump out at you.
remember when they used to have a wild card?
If you could bring somebody back with a wild card, who would it be?  I'd bring back Chris. 
I second that, Wild Blue works well (sm)
for me. Tried Hughes a few years back and it was awful but maybe they are improved now. Have had Wildblue for 2 years and it works pretty good.
Possibly Wild Blue?....sm
I don't live in Oregon, but am in rural western Washington. I know a few MTs who use Wild Blue and are happy with it, so that would be my only suggestion.

I did want to say that I have been using satellite for about three years now (a small local company), have been on no less than 4 different MT platforms, and never had any problems. Yes, satellite can be susceptible to extreme weather...but if you're in a rural area you're about as likely to have your power go out anyway in extreme weather!
Best of luck.
Wild guess, but might get you closer

1.  of any murmurs.

2.  funduscopic exam

3.  Eyegrounds??

Pretty wild, I have not had really anything happen since my mom died 09/26/04 except how Jen became
diagnosed with her Wilms tumor.  The day prior to it she'd had her normal checkup and the doctor totally missed the tumor (hard to since it was huge, 15 x 11 x 5 cm...was not protruding though unless she was flat on her back and naked and then only a tiny bit), but felt if you palpated the abdomen. (Dr. cut my daughter's ear while trying to clean wax but failed to mention it to her what he was trying to do, messed up the rest of the exam since she was crying and freaked out from it)  The very next day after her check up though, she fell off the kiddie see-saw (18" fall).....my husband likes to think my mom pushed her off, which subsquently caused a blood vessel on the tumor to burst, which made her pee blood, which got me to get her to the doctor's, who proto found her tumor.  Had she not been diagnosed then, in the next week or so the tumor would have probably burst or spread or somehow not have been encapsulated anymore and things would have been a lot worse. So my mom helped her get treatment a lot earlier than she otherwise would have probably.  I thinks it's nice to think about it this way.
Wild Blue satellite internet

Anybody currently using Wild Blue satellite internet?  Any responses good or bad would be greatly appreciated.

Well, that's all folks. All gifts have been given. It's been a wild ride
Here is a great site and you can wild search
too if you can understand a portion of the name.


I also use WIld Blue and have no problems. Both my jobs are FTP, though.
My computer has gremlins! My mouse has gone wild. sm
Last night when I put my mouse over the "Start" button to shut down, it suddenly went crazy.  It began moving all over the desktop, things started popping up, it was like a wild animal!  I thought it was just a dirty mouse and cleaned it.  When I booted up this morning, the same thing happened.  Then it settled down, and it's working fine.  Now I'm not sure if it's the mouse or the computer.  I'm the same person who had the "wavy" screen yesterday.  Has anyone ever had this happen?  I'm getting paranoid, thinking maybe I have picked up some strange bug on the net.  Any advice appreciated.  Thanks so much for all the help.
not sure about you, but we have several wild animal care and education centers...
The best way to start is to volunteer.

We have like Messinger Woods and Hawk Creek around here, like animal sanctuaries, where they have owls, eagles, deer, all sort of animals they need to take care of. You can always visit one and ask questions. I would love that, too, only I can not get my boyfriend interested. I would love to even volunteer.

Sounds funny, but what about a zoo...same thing, you can volunteer at first, see if you like it, and I believe those positions offer decent pay...?
Only during the summer. Wild colored toe socks in winter.
Isn't that wild?!! At least a few people will be needed as MTs/editors in the years to come. nm
stop and full stop
that reminds me of a doctor who had his own very unique word for period...he called it a "perikat".  All through the report...Perikat... perikat.... LOL
Dilemma! Tomorrow is picture day and my 5 yo just went wild w/a jug of blue food coloring --


both hands and the entire lower half of his face are now bright, royal blue.. Will this wash off by morning???

I would let DD go with Habitat for Humanity or a church mission, but not that wild party stuff.
Saute the innards with other veggies, wild rice, sun dried toms. then
Wild guess-borrow a wireless?? Go to an open wirless and work from the car if you have to?
Where there's a will there's a way - keep asking and keep talking, someone will help you. Ask the company you work for to help you out here, perhaps they have a plan for you if they value your association.
Ours is in the regular food store with the brown, wild, and short grain rices, etc. nm
Sending ES?

I have .DSS files being sent to me via email.  If I want to send them to another person's computer so that when I go there I can pull it up and transcribe from their house - is this a possibility?  I can't seem to get ES to forward the actual .DSS file.  I am so confused.

What has that got to do with sending
the work there.  What about 911?  That was a much, much, much larger scale event.  Besides it seems like the target were American and British tourists. 
They are all sending more to India
But don't you get grief for sending
too much to QA? I know I am only allowed a certain percentage, so I am still going back over the audio 2 or 3 times to try to stay within my allowed percentage (and why I have crap for production). However, I think it stinks that one could easily get a whole batch of dictations by the same nasty dictator and your sending-stuff-to-QA stats go down the dumper. And of course, the worse the dictator, the more he/she dictates and the longer they are, according to the MT Murphy's law!
Looking for suggestions on sending out
letters to local doctor offices looking for work. I have tried using flyers with no response and want to try a more professional letter letting them know that I'm available. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
What is she sending you in the packages?
I know after I turned Focus down it took several months for them to leave me alone, but they never snail mailed me anything.

I agree with putting return to sender on whatever she is sending you and just add her emails to your spam mail.
I think I will be sending it back.

I noticed that the CD seems to "skip" over some questions or items that it used to ask. Since I do a lot of searching on the 'net, I guess I will call this one a "not needed" item anymore.  I just thought it would be a bit easier instead of going to the 'net to do a search...you know "information at your finger tips" type of deal.

Thanks for the input. I'm a little dissapointed in this version to say the least. I have no idea why they took a great product and ruined it.


re-sending reports
The company I work for has this problem.  They came up with the following policy:  We send you the work.  You lose it, we resend it.  We also bill you again for it.  It has cut down on a lot of calls.
I think other way, for receiving not sending
