My perfect space

Posted By: Lynn on 2009-01-20
In Reply to: Cool ... - here's my set up. sm

I thought I had to continue with my big bulky wood, L-shaped desk but then we put porcelain tile throughout our house and even into my workroom. I then was "talked" into getting a smaller, all glass desk with a really light hue of blue to it. I got a 4 tiered matching shelf that holds my fax/telephone, printer and pictures of my furkids and other essentials. This room has my television (I also have on QVC and HSN during the day which I can watch without really listening. My room is painted a colonial blue with white shutters, faces my mailbox and driveway and I have my cat condo in front of the desk where my furkids can look out the window and see the birds. I enjoy watching them and the birds occasionally. Oh, forgot, my hubby even though offered his own room for his computer wanted to be in the same room (to be close to me, he said) so he has a very small desk right behind mine. He is never a bother and I really do enjoy having him here on his days when he is off from work.

you know as couples go, angelina and billy bob were perfect skanks for each other. perfect!
i suspect they may get back together because they are both so skanky no one else can keep up.  that is unless she decides she wants her brother more which is skankier.
I meant "One space or two", not "l space or two" nm
But perhaps you should! Eye are not perfect! (as above)
A second look never hurts!
well i'm glad you've never made a mistake or wrong decision in your life. you have no idea what went through his head while he was there, and you have no idea what his situation was, or how he was feeling or anything. i wish my husband could be as perfect as you. ha, but then he would also be heartless.
Of course, nobody is perfect
but when your rate of pay depends on your QA score and you have endless pages of style guides to memorize, then one would expect the QA people to already know all of that information. I have done QA in the past as well and what I didn't remember, I would look up and many times learned things from the MT!!
Perfect!! Thanks so much.

Thank you!  Exactly what I was looking for. 

Have a great day


Perfect!!!! nm
perfect job for me.... sm
Why? Because I love this job and doing it from home just makes it so much better. I get to work in my jammies without makeup, deciding what to wear, traffic, long lines at the donut shop, fighting for the optimal parking spot, office politics, the boss's "favorite", backstabbing, nit picking, monitored bathroom breaks and phone calls, etc. I do acute care for a large hospital and every report is different. It keeps my brain motivated and my fingers moving. It ain't perfect, but I love it.

I like how a transcription company can't spell transcribing....lol.
Perfect example of why we need QA ... it is
Truly laughing out loud here!

Lee Perfect
Hi was wondering if anyone could tell me anything about this company. Thanks.
lee perfect
do a search on Company Board, not under Google, but under MTStars. They use Emdat platform, which a lot of people do not like. I feel there is a turnover there, as the same jobs are advertised always. They are IC.
I don't get it, either. If we were all perfect,
Perfect VR/ASR
Remember that the better it gets, the less you will be needed.
Thank you so much!!!  You have no idea (or maybe you do) how excited I am about this!!!  I just started using Word about 6 months ago and I have been cursing the fact that I have had to get used to using my arrow keys to get around the templates.  BLESS YOU!!!!!!!!!
This is a perfect example of why
we are losing our jobs.  After 7 years you still don't understand the terminology?  Oh Vey!
Wow! That is perfect!
That is exactly what I need.  May I copy it and use it?  You are so helpful! 
No one is perfect

I had a doctor tell me that he got a report back with fecal sac.  He laughed when he told the story.  It can happen to the best of us.  Try not to let it get you down.

Perfect Transcription, LLC
Anyone have any info on this company?
Ms. perfect? Confused? SM
Watch out, now you have really insulted her!! 

I interviewed for a company a while back whose method for discouraging cherry picking was to dock their paycheck by $5.00 for every report they cherry picked !    ha.. love it !!




in other words, the perfect job!
sorry to burst your bubble! I have, however, been on the same acct for over four years, but it runs scant these days, so I am on another acct, but I'm finally getting used to it.  Can't use many macros though, cause very rarely have the same doc.  How 'bout when you find "that" job, let us all know where it's at!!! Have a good day!  Hey, what happened to winky!!!
Its working perfect for me
AAAMT.COM is a perfect solution for me
Three reasons
Accurate, Accessible, Affordable.
I need to save something. I found this aaamt inc is the MT company for my practice after I fired 15 Mt companies over 6 years. I am using them for 2 years, no other charges, HIPPA comliant and charge only 5.9 cents.

yes, yes, yes, love it, perfect job
Hey everyone, I need the perfect cure....
My son has been up since 3 a.m. vomiting and diarrhea, could be a good old battle with the flu.  What can I give him to help soothe his stomach?  Pepto Bismol didn't help at all, so I need any good ideas on what could stop the churning stomach.  Thanks.
perfect cure
Emetrol - OTC antiemetic for nausea - It works MAGICALLY!
what a perfect comparison
If I had pictured you as anybody that would have been the perfect choice, quirky, funny and cute in the boy next door way.
Perfect!...I'm printing this and
memorizing it! Thank you, thank you! This makes so much sense (and with the symphathetic face/tone). It's hard to think straight and think of this when I'm the one in the situation. I'll let you all know how she takes it. Thanks again.
Word Perfect
Does anybody on here use word perfect? I am a new grad, and a company says they will hire a new grad if I have word perfect and and a wave player. Any input would be good.
word perfect sm
Did anyone notice that since Dell has been having price reductions they are now offering Word Perfect instead of Word for Windows? How can you test/take a position with a new computer which has  Word Perfect if the hiring company is using Microsoft Word? Just another fly in the ointment. How does one deal with this?
Word Perfect

Yes I have used word perfect since the 80's. Last year when we rebuilt my computer  the newest version gives a choice of using word perfect or MS word . I prefer word perfect in many ways. Try it you will love it. I use it for other clients to create logos. It  has a photo storage to create posters and brochures  for example pictures of work my husband has done on worksites that actually show the quality of his work, his creativity and custom work. Steadmans also has a medical speller that can be added.

Word Perfect 12

Format - Line- Spacing

Then set your spacing and hit enter.

I don't use word perfect, but try this...
I thought VR would never be that perfect but
I am totally shocked that it does much, more more than I ever thought it could. On the worst, English and ESL dictators sometimes it comes out almost letter perfect. What I like is some of the medicines I do not know, VR has them down pat. What is really strange is I think it sometimes does better with some of the worst ones and then falters on easier ones but having said that, you still have to have human ears to listen thru all that because a cough, sneeze, crunch, something dropping in the background, just outside noise, will cause it to provide its own words and OMG, they are a hoot then. I really love it and I was not a believer at first.
Nobody said perfect, just not a slob
be for real... editors know there are some corrections and blanks but some MTs take advantage and as QA are paid by the line, this is unfair.
In a perfect world..

  I really feel for you.  I am extremely jaded when it comes to this type of situation.  Maybe the new service is a great company, maybe they mean to do the right thing.  Without an inkling of further information, there is no question that the new service wants to have their cake and eat it too --  They do not deserve a loyal employee of all those years unless they are willing to pay for the benefit of having seasoned and quality people. Having quality continuity helps them point out to the client how smooth the transition will be, blah, blah, blah (unless of course this change is being made because of quality issues in the first place).   I'm sure someone reading this is thinking about how "grateful" you should be.  Sorry, this is business and this is all about making money which is what the new service will do without interruption by sucking as many good MTs in that are already experienced on this account. MTs overall have already lost tremendous ground because we do not allow ourselves and demand the credit and value we deserve.

   Yes, Cobra is hard on the wallet, but you can stop Cobra at any point which puts you in control especially during this transition.   I'd have to take every single factor, pro and con, and go over it with one thought in mind - What will this new company do for me - money, benefits, scheduling/time, work environment, and changes to my working lifestyle?



Yes it would be a perfect world
if only *your* viewpoint was enough.
Nana, U are a perfect example...
of all that was wrong with this site B4 - negative, repetitive bashing for no reason other than boredom, I guess. It's interesting how this site has become a whole lot more informative and fun to come to now that all of us horrible "banned" people have come back - in fact, I wear my banning by what's her name as a badge of honor! So please do enjoy her new site - and we'll enjoy ours, mmmkay?
perfect text my eye
I should be paid more for all the typing and correcting I do on some of those.
In a perfect world....
We should all be so lucky, so perfect, so productive and never have to look anything up or double check any spelling, address, etc.

Can't imaging what your QA looks like when you type 100 miles per hour nonstop and never stop to breathe.

The perfect supervisor
One that allows you to have an "off day" once a while and does not get too personal.  One that gives bonuses to those who go above and beyond to help when it's needed.
One Space
MQ employee here and we were told one space!
It's their space. They can do as the please. Go get your own
and make your own rules.
Go get your own space
She wouldn't have this space if it weren't for the MT's who keep it alive.  What a silly answer to some genuine concerns. 
space changes
Did anyone else get the memo about the change in spacing for MQ?  On DQS, there will be only one space after periods.  They will let each account know when the switch is made.  Its a *new national standard*, the memo says.  OMG, so here I have typed since high school with two spaces, now I have to retrain myself to use only one space after periods.  Just another thing to cut down on my production.
Yes, its 1 space in the BOS and most new

English/grammar/business references. Since the age of computers, the powers-that-be, whoever they are, decided that the double space after a period was not a good thing anymore. So, most business courses, college courses, etc., have changed to 1 space now. You just set up a macro to change 2 spaces after a period to 1 space when you are done with the report. And yes it does depend on client preferences, though most that I work for like 1 space. Guess they feel they're getting more bang for their buck!

x2, no space
My space
I love myspace and have met lots of friends! Not Mr Right though! Its just really a fun thing to do, building your own web page and all, if you like doing that kind of thing!
They already took one space away when most...sm
of us went from two spaces after periods and colons to one. This is just the natural progression of them cutting our pay back little by little.
The BOS says x3 with no space
but regardless, I would type what the supervisor wants. It doesn't matter how you have always done it.

I have found out many times that things that I have done for years are technically incorrect. Just part of the game, unfortunately.
