just checked i-mail. no news. how did you get your news?

News flash..Don't know where you get your news, but the economy is doing very well.
My theory is no news is good news. (sm)
If there is really a problem with your transcription, then I would not worry about it. They will get to you if you screw up.

As far as policies and procedures, look in your manual. I am sure they gave you info for all of that stuff. JMO.
I have good news and bad news 4U...
The good news is on Saturday, July 1 many of your least favorite residents will be "graduating." The bad news is that on the same day you'll be getting a virtual box of candy with brand new residents who have no clue how to dictate! RU excited?? ARGHHHH!!!!
I think it's still $5.15 in FL until 2006...sm

it's going up to $6.15 in Florida this year I read......still not nearly enough in my opinion.....*tsk tsk*

But happy that the states may be taking it over....*S*

No kidding. I was going to buy a 2006. nm

I don't expect anybody to read anybody else's mind for me?  Unless maybe you know how to read minds??
2006 Saturn Ion
Will say it this way, seventies. Not 2006.
Class of 2006
Who said 0.00 because its just a high school graduation?  My middle son just graduated this year and we did give him a huge graduation party with a buffet, cake, ice cream, balloons, napkins imprinted with his name and "Class of 2006" on them, etc.  We did the party here in our home on a Sunday afternoon and invited family, close friends and a few teachers he had kept in touch with through the years.  Yes, it was his job to earn the diploma and such was expected of him; however, the party was our reward to him for a job well done.  He did receive lots of gifts -- some were money, some were things for college, etc.  The monetary gifts ranged from $5 to $200.  My son was just as grateful for the $5 gifts as he was for the $200 (grandparents).  He also received only cards from a few people who attended, and he was still grateful for their sharing his special day.  One of the gifts he was most excited about was a gift card to a bookstore.  He spent a couple of hours wandering around trying to decide what books he wanted to purchase.  Another gift he cherishes to this day is "A Book of Prayers for the Graduate."  Don't give more than you can afford.  If a card is the best one can do, then its enough because they're acknowledging an accomplishment and milestone in a young adult's life.
The 5th edition was put out in 2006. Definitely
Not able to see 2006 posts
How do I get to see posts from 2006?  The archives seem to show me 2004 and 2005.  Sorry if this is an obvious answer, but I am not seeing it. 
Sorry meant to say 2006.....- nm
$35K in 2006, PT. Last year sm
Argh! Probably about $28 to $30K. Took a job that kept running out of work. I have a full time job now and a PT IC. I think I will break $40K for 2008. I HOPE I do anyway.
Right, retired in 2006...sm
Due to medical problems, and I am certainly not up on the latest technology or who is getting what type of work. When I retired, V/R was just becoming widespread and I never was involved in it. I just loved the ESLs, but maybe they have gotten worse/more careless/truly don't GAS. My sister had one that I could hardly understand either.
CMT 1992-2006. sm
Don't worry about the test. Like Iowan said, just register and take it. I had to drop mine when I retired, but I enjoyed having it when I was working. :)
Happy New Year 2006 to you! ...nm
Anyone else really disappointed with the 2006 QLDB?

This latest version seems like a beta version.  Could it be more time consuming with all the clicking, scrolling, and tabs required to click on?  Even the new search feature stinks as it does not bring what you typed in to the top, it just leaves it on the bottom and you must scroll to bring it up.  This one is definitely NOT built for production.  Has anyone figured out how to import things from previous versions of their drug book into this one?  I cannot figure it out with this version and my e-mails to them for help have gone unanswered thus far.

Is it faster than paging through a book?  Yes.  Is it up to the standards of their previous QLDBs?  Not in my opinion and I have been very happy with the electronic version since 1999. 

2006 Honda Civic
P.S. Those dates should be 2006, not 2005 nm
I'm seeing posts on different boards from 2006. Need
Take a screen shot of this: $150 in 2006

Health Insurance policy for 2006
is now charging a supplement payment for smokers and those that live with smokers. Does anyone else have this policy or getting for the next year? This not through MT companies.
Interesting article about best careers in 2006. sm
I know the Club Med there will not be open until June 2006, if that is of any help. sm

No doubt a travel agent could give you an idea of how things are.  If it was me, I think I'd wait a bit.  They were hit pretty hard, and there is a lot of cleanup, I'm sure.

Wherever you go, have some sun in the fun for me! 

EXText and Stedmans 2006 spellchecker?
Anybody know if they are compatible or if there are any glitches I should be aware of before I plunk down the dough? Thanks!
2005-$12K, 2006 expect to make about $21K - sm
2005 --I would have made more but when my daughter got sick in 3/05 I could not work much with her going to chemo and just dealing with everything, so that hurt my income big time. Have 2 PT jobs, 1 is a small MTSO and the other is my own account. My goal for 2007 is $24K...would like to eventually get up to $30K.
2006 Chevy Cobalt - love it!
2006 Monte Carlo SS (black)
Save your money on the 2006 version - why -
I have used the CD version ever since it has been available and loved it, UNTIL the 2006 version. It is very different from the prior versions. It is far more cumbersome to use, is not designed for speed, and was such a waste of time I went back to using the 2005 version and just adding in the new drugs. My comments and questions to Stedman's about their latest version went unanswered. Like I said, I was very pleased with the prior versions and updated every year, but I will never buy this product again unless it is MT friendly, which the 2006 version is NOT.
Get the April 2006 Consumer Reports magazine...sm
It gives you a rundown on all vehicles as well as which ones have held up well and which ones haven't over the years. It's in the stores now or your local library should have a copy you can look at for free. :o)
Anyone able to find Quick Look drug reference 2006

If so, where did you purchase it?  Out of stock at the places I have checked.


Just bought a 2006 convertible BMW - Silver. Love it. nm
2006 Jeep Commander w/Hemi-hate the gas,
since I have a tendency to hold vehicles for a long time (100, 000 miles or more) I went ahead and got it fully loaded - DVD for grandkids, saddle brown leather seats, the whole nine yards.  The nearest store to me is 15 miles away so we stock up at shopping time, plus I work from home, so I don't drive every day.  My last vehicle was a 1998 Jeep Classic with over 100, 000 miles and I gave it to my son.  I like the boxy look.  Some people think it's a Hummer, though. 
direcway has not been a "company" since at leat 09/2006. They are now hughes. sm
Service is great. Tech support stinks cause it is done in a different country. Been with direcway (now Hughes) for 5 years. wound not change.
3 since November 2006 when I started at-home transcription nm
that should be, public, free TV will be gone...wheels in motion starting 2006...(nm)
Thank you for this info!! Texas has passed law to be effective sept. 1, 2006!!!! nm
IRS and medical records are other people's business. It's the way of the world, 2006
There is nothing you can hide. Insurance companies have your info and share it with other insurance companies. Medical records are passed from doctor's office to doctor's office, secretary to secretary, MT to MT.
I have the 2006 edition. But the 2007 of this and the Quick Look Drug Book come out
Saw on job board, Webmedx AAMT Employer of year, 2006 trying to pull

MTs generally don't give a RIP about AAMT? I doubt seriously that this will entice MTs anymore than if they just left that ridiculous blurb out.  I, frankly, think AAMT is an embarassment to the MT industry.  Sharon (Ace) Ventura

I thought they can only audit you or send you a tax bill 2 years prior. It is now 2006 - the 2 year
I may be wrong here - maybe it is 3 years, but I thought the law changed and it was 2 years. Check into it.
WOW, that is news. Thanks. nm
old news
This same type of e-mail has been passed around for years. It will not work. Check it out on snopes.com.
Very sad news

As hard as it is, you did the kindest thing you could.  Why is it that cats want to curl up on your foot that is running the foot pedal?  Or on top of your mouse?  Or in front of your monitor?

You have my sympathy.  Cats are people too!  Sometimes my cat seems to be the only one who understands me....at least the only one who listens.


Just saw that on the news!
where on fox news?
can't find it. can you post the link? I heard "rumors" that he has already received several offers..everything from being a popular band's new lead singer to solo recording deals. I hope to hear more from him soon. I really enjoyed his perfomances.
This is old news. sm
I can't even remember the name right now (not memorable anyway), but as I recall "Medical Transcripton" no longer appear in the name.  Someone please correct me if I am wrong. 
Could be bad news
If you have been out of work for 9-10 months for the past couple of year you might not be eligible for unemployment as you have to work so much in the past 5 quartes - 2005 to 2006 to be eligible.  And if you did not make much, then your benefit will be very little and yout IC could set off that.  You can look a lot of this up on your state's page.   They usually list what qualifies for it and what does not.  But good luck.  We all need help at one time or another and that is what it is there for.  I am more for you getting unemployment than an illegal coming into the states and having a surgery that I could not afford and we as tax payers pay for it.  Know that opens up another bucker of worms but that is my feeling. 
bad news ....

I was quite excited about your suggestion.  I talked with my daughter - that is out of my son's area of expertise. She works with software. She said it would have to be piggy backed onto the transcription software. I don't think companies would allow that.  I also thought about having a little gold coin dropping into a bucket on the screen after every line but she said same thing, piggy back. Oh well, back to my footpedal idea.


FOX has *nothing* to do with NEWS nm
no message (much like FOX, except for their messages of hate and intolerance).
