I believe they got rid of the too numerous boards - sm

In Reply to: coding board - joan

because it was getting totally ridiculous. There were boards for everything under the sun it seemed. Posts were being moved and locked because they should be on a different board. Many, including myself, thought it was getting to be a bit too much. So luckily they listened and trimmed it back down to something a bit more manageable.

I am sorry. I meant boards not broads. Now those darn boards have disappeared again.
There are numerous ones.
Start with your ISP, may offer free storage space. Google for FTP storage or online storage and you'll get lots of hits. It's hard to decide for you.
I have seen numerous discussions regarding
AAMT on this site. ????
numerous discussions here
I have been following numerous threads here and I have a question.  If many of the MTs here are dissatisfied with what is going on with the industry, then why do all of the MTs not stick together and demand what is deserved?  I understand that we all must have an income because we all have bills due and mouths to feed; but, it would not take but a few days for all qualified MTs and Editors/QA to demand benefits and a bottom line cpl/hourly rate or whatever you want to call it.  Kind of like a union.  No company could exist, even with newbies or off-shore doing the work without the qualified MT backing all of this up.  I am not looking to start a war here.  I have just read on this board for quite some time about this same issue, but nobody seems to want to take action.  I know for a fact that if ALL MTs would stick together here, the end result would be very favorable.  It seems over the last number of years these companies are demanding the MT to do more work and have much more knowledge for much less money than they deserve.  So, with that being said, why why why would you not demand your just pay?  Again... I know for a fact that if ALL qualified MTs would stick together, they would have no choice but to pay a standarized fair scale in order to keep their doors open.
Are you in an area where there are numerous hospitals??

If so, maybe some of them have their own departments and you can get hired inhouse.  That's what I finally had to do in order to get the pay and respect and steady work that I needed.  I'm working less than full-time and making 30,000+.  You may have to work in house and follow a set schedule, but at least you'll have a decent job. 

There are numerous studies presently

taking place concerning this relatively new medication.  Below is a single example of Fosamax prescribing from the "norm."  If I were typing that report, I would type it verbatim and not flag/question the physician's dictation.

                                            FOSAMAX DOSING

The prevention dose is 5 mg daily, the treatment dose is 10 mg daily. Alendronate should be continued indefinitely. Although discontinuation of the alendronate does not result in the rapid bone loss seen with HRT discontinuation, a gradual decline does occur, so some maintenance therapy should be utilized. The dosing may be modified once optimal bone mass is restored.  One could then consider the 10 mg dose to the 5 mg prevention dose daily, or perhaps to 10 mg every other day.  A once weekly dose of 70 mg or a twice-weekly dose of 35 mg is presently being evaluated as an alternative-dosing regimen but has not yet been approved. (Study results pending).

I heard it was awful, by numerous people who saw it.
oops "WERE" numerous complaints...lol
The slow versus fast talked about numerous times regarding VR
I donít have any idea where this ridiculous statement started from. Think probably from the haters who are probably going to be put on VR and digging their heels in to not have to do. Rather than rates, which I think probably are about the same, 4 cents per line, you should ask who has the best platform and go for a company that perhaps does not have a zillion employees. Being slow, being newbie, etc. would just work against a good person for VR.
but boards will be dano's boards and that's the issue. no one dare disagree with dano.
yes the boards will be boring with just one-sided opinions but we need to please dano. isn't that the purpose of MT Stars?
I have asked numerous times if people like the Amherst office but seems no one ever offers their
opinion about that office. Just transferred there and I am sure many other MTs on here work out of that office.

I am new to the boards...
and I am not too sure if I want to stay on these boards. I am afraid to say (write) something wrong and get crapped on! I think that *some* people need to grow up. You are ruining it for everyone one else that enjoys to post and read the boards!
Welcome to the boards!
Other boards (SM)
I should included all other boards as well, i.e., Recipe, Equipment, Politics, etc.

200 is for the other boards, not the
the boards..................NM
If you look at the ads on various job boards they

list equipment.  Some still use C-phone, some use Lanier, some use wav pedals, some require you to rerecord and there are still a few small local ones that still use tapes.  Even though some companies use the internet, some you download and work off-line, others you have to be connected the whole time you are working so high-speed is a must, either cable or DSL.   I you are going to buy a foot pedal I'd get a generic that would work with ExpressScribe or Start/Stop, one that is capable of working with multiple types of voice files.  The ExpressScribe software is free so you just need the pedal.   I haven't read your other posts so don't know if you are trying to go on your own of what, but if you are working for a company I wouldn't buy a foot pedal until you have a job where you need one.  Some companies use a proprietary software and you need a specially configured foot pedal.  You can always download the free ExpressSribe and use the keys to do any testing.


we don't have to be 100% on these boards...

I see improper usage of their, there, they're all the time on the boards but doesn't mean that's what the poster uses in medical reports - sometimes people just forget and type the wrong word on public boards -

Except for the word board, the admin here at this site says we are never to correct the poster's typo.....so let it go, let God, and not to worry. 

One should never assume anything in this business - one of the first rules of thumb. 

MT boards
You'll have to do a Google search or maybe someone will email you. There are others, but it is against the rules of this website to direct people to them, at least on these boards.
and all the other job boards - there are may outside of two.
There are already boards where you can
do this and they can also post on the various word boards.  I help on the word boards when I can, one even has at least 1 physician who frequently helps, and with a word board you get a whole lot more experience than you would working one-on-one with someone. 
Have seen it on other non-MT boards too
Don't know if it is the general mindset of people in tought times; participation at another site I frequent is down significantly because of the negative and attacking posts.

Do you believe everything you read here on these boards? No one knows any better
than I do whether they outsource. They do not.
All boards are up and running.
Just got done working, looking at boards...
first I heard, and yes, will miss him... How sad!
Hey I'm in Tennessee where are these boards? NM
You go to other internet boards and think everyone
I would like to post on these boards. Can anyone help?

I am totally confused as to what section of the religion board to post on.  There is nothing for general Christianity or perhaps Quaker pursuasion, etc.

I also have no idea what I am, liberal or conservative or what.  I liked it better when you could have a real discussion.  We exchanged ideas.  I know sometimes they got out of hand, but I don't like any of these boards now.  They are just plain too confusing now. 

With all due respect - I go to several web boards, SMT, and SM

the AOL boards. This is the only one where I read so much about dissatisfied MTs. Oh, once in a week or so you'll hear something about VR or EMR, but mostly, the people in other places are still excited about being MTs, proud of what they do, certainly not talking about working fast food.

There's lively discussion about home stuff, hobbies, and kids, but I don't hear many people at all saying they can't make a living at this.

I wonder why that is? Serious question.

Anything that does not belong under the other boards. (NM)
boards and then GO FOR IT, whichever way...nm
lighten up - I have gotten a lot of help on these boards (sm)
We're just having a fun day.  Are we allowed?  I've also noticed that many of the questions that have no answers posted are the ones that have already been asked and answered ad nauseum.  Check archives.  People get tired of repeating the same things over and over.
MTs always negative on these boards? hmm? NM................
No clue really but perhaps on the boards...sm
Equipment or Technical boards here at mtstars might help you better than I cannot.  I only know that one of my monitors has a very small screen and I cannot see a lot of what I'm supposed to see on that screen.
other MT message boards
I was just wondering how many of you go to other MT message boards and if this is your favorite.  I have lots of them posted on my favorites but this is the only one I check every day.  Once in a while I might check the others but I'm usually bored after a few minutes.  How about the rest of you? 
How to search boards
Can someone please tell me how to search for comments on companies?  tia.
Posting on boards
I agree that some topics should be posted on their respective boards but it seems as if every other message the thread is locked. Pretty soon, you won't have to worry--no one will be using the boards at all! It's a little confusing to decide, gee, should I put this on this board or that board or maybe they won't let me post it
OR they will get the point and use the appropriate boards. sm
The monitors should have started this a long time ago, they maybe the users of the board would have learned which boards to use from the start. I think this is a great idea even though it must take a lot of their time to do it.
they have to keep boards organized....N/M

State boards
Here in Oregon there is a posting on the state board that shows complaints, etc. against doctors.  So you might try that.
I see it now, thanks! On the state boards it's
This made my day (how sad is that???). I guess we don't need to go to the Comedy Stop unless there's a new joke anyway . . . (LOL)
State Boards
Why don't we all try the State Boards on this site?  We could really network.  This site has been a big help to me and my endeavors.  Thanks to the administrator and all who support it!
Check out the new MT boards
little or no experience.  It might help you decide.  I don't like to discourage anyone, but it does take a lot more than just "fast typing".  You have to have thick skin as well.  You have to be very, very independent, which probably leads to the cut-throat attitudes some (not all) have in this profession.  Some of us have been stabbed in the back so many times, we need the MEDS to dull the pain.  Please do not take this profession lightly as we do not look at it as simply babysitting/no daycare, extra money.  There are a lot of hardworking MT's here with a lot of knowledge.  We are willing to help one another.  One day if you get into this field, way, way, way down the road, you'll know where people are coming from.  Good luck in your endeavors! 
Please see our state boards. NM
There are only a few boards left

so I think I'll post on all of them and then make up my own!!   When you've worked for nearly 4 years in an office and you're the only man, you learn how to take instruction pretty quickly! (Well for me, it took way to long, I'm a slow student)  (drumroll please?)

Seriously, though, sm I've garnered enough advice from the "three boards" to get a good picture of what I want to do. I'll just take the plunge and see what happens. I'm still keeping my day job so no worries about stability.  


Must not be that mad if you posted on two boards
State boards
I haven't been able to get on that page for weeks.
State Boards

Anybody else having trouble getting on the state boards?  When I try is says it cannot display the page.  Just wondering if it is just me.
