In Reply to: care package for military in iraq ideas?? sm - anon

A few people in the troop know people in Iraq and the soldiers they know said they don't care if any melt.....of course we are not sending all mints, or all chocolate ones but a mixture. Needless to say I am sure they will all be gone in 10 minutes!

Brownie recipe.... Shhhh, it's a secret.....
I got a GREAT to die for brownie recipe of his. This one is much more specific as he wrote the stuff down. Double chocolate batter, chocolate (and sometimes caramel) sauce, white chocolate and pecans on the top... He calls them Suicide Brownies.... would be happy to share if you're interested.
not out to stir the pot or gain brownie points
Okay, I'll tell. I work for an MTSO that is known for its standard of hiring only the best of the best MTs. The only feedback I get is for the exceptionally good work I do and the raises it earns.

I just think the OP is conflicted...trying to "set" us all straight while s/he studies to move out of this profession and still projects that the rest of us should care about it - as if anyone who has been in this business has not kept up with the changes; where it used to be, where it is now and where it is heading.

I do my part through the work I produce. My work ethic would hold true whether I produce reports or greet people at Wal-Mart. I have nothing to prove or need the attention as it seems the OP does.

Again, this is a waste of bandwidth.
i'd call that brownie points for heaven LMAO...and a waste of time!
Southwestern chicken and rice, corn nuggets, sweet tea and brownie ala mode for dessert! nm
Sounds like a strawberry or raspberry cheesecake brownie. Google the phrases + recipes and lots of
Mom-CMT..when you get those cookies done
how bout sharing them around here LOL...heck at this point, I'll take the ones that don't have any shape.  Sounds good!
Thanks for the info. Will try the chilling, as I am not at a high altitude. Sure would like to make some pretty sugar cookies and gingerbread men!
You take cookies?????

Gee, does your doctor bake you cookies when you make an appointment with him?  What about your attorney, your accountant, your plumber, and your carpenter?

Baking cookies, to me, is so totally unprofessional.  I would NEVER do that.  It's almost comical, as a matter of fact.

My cookies do not keep my accounts for me

Gee thanks a lot, guess it is my cookies that do my 35,000  to 40,000 lines per month for my accounts.  All I do is that if they respond to my brochure, express interest or talk with me I swing by with a plate of cookies to say "thank you" or if it is an account I really would like I swing by with a plate of cookies with a brochure and more times than not at least the brochure will make it to the manager's desk.  It is the same as giving out pens with your business name on it.  Again I stress, if I did not do a decent job I could not have stayed in this business as a MTSO for 18 years, support myself, own a home and have a half way personal retirement fund set up.   Guess I will put on my tombstone, "I owe my success to my cookies".  And really my flyer is a brochure. 



I received cookies
I received cookies from an MT company I know longer work for and of course nothing from the ones I do work for!!
Not sure what you are looking for. Deleting cookies
should take about 30 seconds. 
Did you clear your cookies? nm

cleared the cookies
call me when the cookies are ready
and pour me some warm milk!
She wasn't asking how to delete cookies, she was going
to be instructing people on how to do it. 
Cookies! Uhm, well, now I do have some cookie dough in the fridge!
Perhaps I should dollop a few out and bake'em and eat'em while they are hot with some cold milk before bed?!?! Then, I can fall asleep as my blood sugar plummets to new lows! ROFL

No, don't read those posts. It's irritating! Who wants to be irritated?! NOT ME!! LOL
Be sure to keep the temp files and cookies cleaned
defrag often.
Just got back from a booth sale for GS Cookies - sm
been doing that for the last 3 Saturdays....working some now....will do the rest tomorrown. Have an easy weekend as I only took on about 40 minutes of dictation and my own acct. did not upload any work Friday though I will pay for that on Monday. Plan to clean out my older daughter's closet tomorrow and organize their close (i.e. remove all the stuff too small from one kid and give to the other while removing some of hers as well)...very time consuming and desperately needs doing.
Homemade cookies? A nice potted plant?
What do they like? Do they have a hobby, or collect anything?
deleting cookies-go to TOOLS, internet options

Once you get to internet options from TOOLS at the top of your browser, you have a radio button to delete cookies, one to delete history, one to delete online files and then offline files - that is how you delete the cookies AND the cache/memory/history.

Is that what you need to know?  Hope that helped!! 

Now I cant see the different broads again. Everytime I clean out my cookies and offline files I cant
get in the different boards. Any suggestions. They are gone again.
BBQ chicken, baked beans and garlic toast with M&M cookies for dessert! nm
Does anyone send Christmas cookies or presents TO your office, if you are a remote employee? sm
Just wondering if that's a weird thing to do or not.
My sister makes Clipper Ship Chocolate Chip Cookies!
Milk chocolate chips, sometimes toasted pecans, and varies between Grand Marnier or sometimes Amaretto in them!

Oooooooooo!!!! Large cookies, and fresh baked with a glass of super cold milk!

Now my mouth is watering! LOL
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
Looks like that's only for sending, not receiving?
RE: sending files
Why are we getting punished for sending things to QA?
We are paid by the line, it seems logical that if we cannot understand something, we shouldn't have to take the time as QA personnel because it affects OUR paycheck, not theirs! Otherwise, pay us by the hour, minutes tick tock away and so do our dollars and cents!
promptness of sending a check
you should know by now the only reason they're doing it is because of the MTs who are filing the lawsuit --- if no one was questioning it they would continue along their merry way miscalculating away!!
sending back work
I have made it a point to learn the *hard* doctors, cause they are sent to me quite a bit, cause MQ knows I can do the *hard* doctors..Its crummy having to learn them and knowing you are losing money in the process but once you learn the *hard* doctors, you know the ones who are ESL or English as third or fourth language (smile), you can do them and then it is no big deal.  Yesterday, I got a half transcribed report with at least seven blanks for Q/A..I was able to do the report with no blanks cause I have learned this doctor, who has what I think is a Middle Eastern French accent..He is quite hard but I can do him as I have learned him over the years (since 2000).  Practice makes perfect and the way transcription is going with voice recognition, I think the only transcriptionists who will be left in the end are the ones who can do the ESL, mumblers, speed talkers or speech impediment doctors, the ones who voice recognition cannot do.
MQ doesn't know what THEY are sending out. They even call you to

It's all very dumb.  I'd like to have the money for my paycheck they have wasted on this production. 

It just is another dig to show MTs they have the power and we sit out here like hogs at the trough waiting for more scraps.  I'm tired of it.  I'm a professional or at least I used to be.  My profession used to be respected.  They do tricks like this and jerk us around and think it's cute.  Well, here's a news flash - It Isn't Cute.  And it certainly is not professional.

Absolutely, sending prayers their way.
What do you think about sending out Christmas cards with
a business card inside to solicit for local accounts?  Tacky?  Different?  Original?  I've got a list of small locals I'd like to solicit but was waiting until after the new year.  Then I found a couple of boxes of Christmas cards that I bought on clearance last year.  Why not kill two birds with one stone?  Unclutter the Christmas box and send holiday greetings to potential clients?
Anyone being penalized for sending reports to QA?
I guess I have it all wrong when it comes to QA.  I thought it stood for quality assurance.  I send reports to QA when I have a blank.  I put a blank when I am not 100% sure of what I heard, including the spelling of the patient's name.  I want to make sure the patient gets their report typed up accurately.  I want to turn in the best work I can do.  Why is it that wanting a second set of ears to confirm what you thought you heard a bad thing ending up in being penalized or terminated if it goes beyond a certain %?  I am very confused.  I refuse to "guess" just to fill in blanks even if it means I will be fired. 
No, at this co. QA is good about sending back

that's the usual process so that we can listen to our errors. How do you ever learn if you don't see your errors?

sending/receiving dictation
I am looking at taking on another account.  My account I currently have I did not have to set up the send/receive aspect because it was already done for me.  My first client uses a software called Send-It.  They upload the handheld recorder tapes onto the computer on thier end and it transfers to my FTP site.  Now they do not make this software because it is not compatible with XP.  Is there any software out there like this that is compatible with XP so I can let my new client know where to get it?  He wants to do a call in situation, but I know nothing about this and would like to keep both clients the same.  Thanks for any information!!
I don't agree w/ sending our jobs over there BUT
to me your logic makes no sense; we had the world trade center bombings here but that didn't mean that we weren't secure enough to handle transcription.....???
I am sending cheers your way - I am jealous -
always wanted to write - but thrilled for you.  Best of luck.
Understood. Sending a smile your way for a better day. nm
Sending their MT's home could substantially - sm
lower the hospital's overhead, without having to lower the MTs' pay. It would also keep higher-quality work with seasoned employees, rather than have people who are out of the area (or out of the country) struggling with details. They'd also have less sick-time, to deal with, as it's easier to work at home than inhouse if you have a cold or some other fairly minor ailment.
are they sending you work to check
all of their work? I don't THINK the gal I work for checks all of my work. I send her a list daily of every job I've typed and which ones I had questions on or blanks and she checks those. I can't imagine not ever having a question whether it be from a bad connection, mumbling, whatever. I would think that is normal. If you never have questions or blanks, I would question what kind of work is being passed along to the client. Of course if I was having to check every report because of mistakes, I would definitely question why I still am paying the transcriptionist.
I read my reports before sending
I read my reports word-for-word before sending (not my posts though! LOL). I started off a little slow at first, but like anything, once I got used to the account my speed increased. Nothing was ever said to me about my counts (which were slightly below the requirement). When I mentioned it to my supervisors just to cover my behind, they told me that they much preferred my 99-100% accuracy on QA checks. I would never put my name on a report without making sure that it was as accurate as possible. These are patient's lives here. If I could not produce accurate reports fairly quickly, I would get out of this business. For me, accuracy comes first and speed second.
AAMT/AHDI is what is sending all US MT's to
