Look on the company board, they are discussed
almost daily. 
This is also discussed on the company board

And we've discussed this before on this board. Life is not that
simple for me. If I leave the state, I leave my elderly parents that I care for and I leave my minor children because they legally cannot cross state lines without their father's permission. He's not going to OK that. Besides, I'm happy doing MT. Who ever said I was not happy doing MT? It works great with all the family I have to care for. I just wish I hadn't wasted time and money going to college, especially when the job market in my state got oversaturated with other college grads.
This also involves AHDI, so I think it should be discussed here on the Main Board, not just MQ's
OMG! HAHA! Do they have a Humor Board? You could lead it! nm
cord biting kitty
I have a cat who has chewed through my foot pedal cord, and I had to go to the store and buy a cored protector to put over the original cord.  I have black electrical tape on most of all my other computer-related cords.  Finally, I purchased some stuff at the pet store called Indoor Bitter End.  I cut the power to everything and carefully sprayed it on all my cords, obviously avoiding exposed wires, plugs, and outlets.  I can say that she hasn't chewed on any of them since I sprayed them!  I type in the basement and know that sometimes it's impossible to confine a cat or kitten and since they have a short attention span are not easily trainable.  Maybe this will help.
Talk about biting the hand that feeds you.
That's what happens when you hand someone a job they have no business having. Bubbye, loser, and good riddance.

She should have never been on that show (or any other show) in the first place.

After a few weeks of finger-pointing and blubbering (literally) on the talk show circuit she'll disappear into the ozone and resurface in about 20 years on VH1's "Remember the 2000's" show commenting on $3.00 gas and I-Pods.
Good Lord! Is all this back-biting really necessary?
admin. where are you now? Sheesh!
More detail?
Can you be more specific about what the * signifies?  Are you using a template where you would be going to a particular field all the time or to a particular heading or something.  If you are going to the same word, I can help you write a macro for that but I would need to know what you mean exactly.
Did you have to go into such great detail?
Apparently you spent quite a bit of time cruising the spaces on myspace...sickening...
can you explain in detail how you can do that?
Because unless you have a ton of normals I can't see how anyone even the fastest typist can do that - been doing this for 25 years and still type over 100 lpm
It wasn't far off at all. I can't go into detail though obviously.
Yep, it IS just one little detail, the fact that you are slave to them, but when they
Anyone try heated socks?

I have alot of trouble with arthritis and stiffness in my ankles probably from years of pressing a foot pedal and was thinking of trying battery operated heated socks, like they sell for hunters, fishermen, etc.  Just wondered if anyone else has ever tried them and how they work.  My poor feet hurt so bad tonight, I wish I had a pair here now.

Is this like a credit card thing or what? Where do you get it/cost? I will be doing a lot of camping this year and will need to download files and work while still connected to the internet.
Review in great detail with the company first....
Are there ergo heated keyboards? nt
Ergo Heated Keyboards
I'm afraid I haven't seen any ergonomic heated keyboards. In fact, I think there is only one heated style that's really out so far. I think there will be more soon though. Between cold offices, Raynaud's and more people using keyboards, something better should be along soon. In the meantime, the heated wrist rest http://www.raynauds.org/offers/ThermalRest.cfm looks like a possible alternative.
GEEZZZZ!!!! What a heated debate about homeschooling!...
Man, this is surely a hot topic! Everyone certainly has their own opinion. In the end, you just have to do for your child what you feel is right. Each child is so different, and you are the only one who REALLY knows YOUR child. Some children flourish in the public school system. Some do not for whatever reason. My first two childen went to public school.

My third (ADHD) WANTED to go to public school, but just couldn't handle it, no matter how much medication and how much counseling, and ended up being homeschooled through the internet for 6,7,8, and begged to try the 2,000 kid high school, so she did. Total disaster. Constant phone calls from the school (same as in grade school) and a 1.6 GPA. She then went back to homeschool through the local alternative school, got a 4.0 GPA. Begged to try the high school again for Junior year. Even worst disaster. 0.6 GPA. She flunked everything she couldn't bring HOME to do. Flunked floral design, basketball, swimming, ceramics, band. Passed all the academics, English, history, science. She is now back to homeschooling through the alternative school, but is allowed to go to the high school dances and walk down the isle for graduation, so she is not too unhappy with that. Good luck to you, whatever you choose.
Leftover delivery pizza from last night, heated in sm
microwave.  Sausage, mushroom, fresh tomatoes.  Such a good place I found locally.  Can't resist them.
I second that.. That's what makes America so great... vibrant, spirited, even heated debate.

This has already been discussed.....
on various threads.  Do a quick search or e-mail admin.
this was just discussed on the
company board. Go to it and scroll down to about 6/19 with comment from Oh, yes, it a full moon for sure. I thought there was another one, too, but I did not see it. Good luck to you.
this is discussed below.
I didn't know it had been discussed either - sm
I don't visit here often.

I have two kids at home (12 and 13) and I roll in the morning and then start to slide at the half way point myself.

I start at 7:30 and take a break about 11:30 or so for lunch, then work some more.

If I am really dragging... I start day dreaming a bit. Okay, a lot. Means i have to go back and read everything more thoroughly but the typing part gets done a heckova lot faster.
Try a search as this has been discussed here before..
This has been discussed extensively. There is
if you discussed (in ANY way) business, yes.
have a receipt with date.
This is the big problem here and what we discussed
Never had famine, still donít.I had 2 children and worked out of the home. How can you let yourself go downhill and just say I sit here trying to make it. That is why this profession has gone down because of no one wanting to leave the house to have a job, just want to sit at home because they have a child. What happens when no money at all, do you still just sit there trying to make it. I had more get up and go, I guess, than what I am reading on here now days. I always wanted to have things like a roof over my head, food for the family, nice vacations and I worked for it. No wonder the companies are offering less and less money to do this job because they have found people willing to wait on things. Before long the workers are going to have to pay the employers to have a job.
TOOOO MUCH!! Which is why it was discussed BEFORE we had kids! LOL
He is adament that the kids will have balance, structure and guides (apparnetly as long as his mother does not object)...fine by me as I was raised that way...however, trying to get a kid to face facts when they were told it was not their fault and they they should be in trouble.....well gee...that is not a recurring line I want used in the house and have yet to get him to admit he was wrong since she told him he was not!  Hence, huge morality issue he needs to learn for his life.   Talking to him all you get is "they say"  instead of I did, I was wrong, etc....she has it in his head he is right, they are wrong!!!!  Our actions are our doing whether good, bad or indifferent.   
It sounds like you and BF have discussed a split up.

At least that's what I think I read below in one of the posts.

The economy of our country is in the toilet right now.  Very few things are secure.  Times are tough and fixing to get tougher.  If there is any way you can slow down, get your bearings, get into a halfway secure position --- your mental health will be better.

You need your mental health in order to be there for your kids.

Have you considered moving the "molehill" instead of the "mountain"?

If the BF has already been approached about the split, what is his position on HIM MOVING out and not you and the kids?  That would be lots less destructive for them.

Also, I wouldn't count on any PT transcription job anywhere right now.  Trust me on this.  This job type is so fluid right now - it's a circus.

I wouldn't move from square one until I got the FT at the hospital.  DON'T MOVE UNTIL YOU FIGURE OUT IF YOU CAN GET THAT JOB.  Then get into it, see what you have to work with.

Secondly, I would not leave myself dependent on the BF for anything but money, and then the courts can get it for you if he decides he doesn't like this, gets a new honey, or gets a "wild hair" and decides to leave the country.

Don't depend on him for babysitting, don't "be nice" and try to share the babysitting.  DON'T DO IT.  Get yourself positioned so you are calling all your shots. 

I know MT looks good on paper when they are selling you an idea of working from home and STAYING WITH YOUR KIDS, but it doesn't work.  The mom ends up the zombie and life becomes like the twilight zone.  I know.  I tried it.  You need to get at the hospital, get daycare, get your childsupport coming in, .........and then think about moving or even buying.  In fact, if you wait, the housing prices are expected to fall even more.  There was an article in our paper about it again yesterday.  Hold off.  If you rent, if the plumbing goes, if the A/C or heater goes......the landlord is responsible.

I don't know if this will give you some things to consider but I hope so.  I raised my kids by myself (of course it was different times but the men were the same, ugh!) and at some times I didn't seem them for having to work so many hours.  I wish now I had just gotten me a State worker job, 8-5, insurance, retirement, gotten a little house even if I had gotten on a program where it was federally assisted, and gone that route.  We could have been together as a family, I wouldn't be doing this horrible life I have now with trying to still work at 60 years old with no place to live.

Think about the future - it's right around the corner.  The kids will be gone and trust me, they won't look back even if they love you lots.  They will be BUSY and you will be an afterthought.  All things in moderation.

First thing - DON'T MOVE, let him move. 

Second thing - WAIT FOR THE FT JOB.

Third thing - Be getting that child support coming in.

I wish you the best. 

p.s. Even if you decide you just have to move and rent even a 2-BEDROOM...it can certainly be done.  My ggg grandparents raised 13 kids in a 2 bedroom old farm house.  Kids slept all over the place!    You and the older kid could share if it's a girl/or if a boy, let him share a bedroom with one of the little ones, and you put the other little one in your room and make a game of it - they will all pitch in and later you all will have "war stories" to talk about when everbody is grown up. 

language was being discussed - not just plead

look down 2 lines and you will see this subject discussed. nm
Discussed this with my boss yesterday
She said she had employees who are missionaries and as long as they maintain a legal residence in the US for tax purposes, she has no problem with it.
I know this has been discussed before but how long does it take to relisten to reports that you have
typed. I know some people do that and some dont. So far I have done okay on QA but if I dont I was just wondering how much extra time per day you figure you need to relisten to reports. I usually do about 30 to 35 medium length reports acute care or 1800 to 2000 lines. What errors do you find mostly when you relisten or is it not worth the extra time it takes. Just curious.
Unlimited long distance...I know this has been discussed before...but..sm
just received letter from AT&T informing me that I cannot use their unlimited plan for what I am using it for, and if I continue to do so, they will charge me a per minute rate and/or remove the service.  I need to know where to go for an unlimited long distance package for transcription.  Please post and let me know what you all use.  Without unlimited, what the heck are we supposed to do? What does everyone else do?  Any help and info would be appreciated.  Thank you

The stress of the job keeps me biting my nails. No nails here! nm

This is strange. I just discussed a flexible on-call person
for radiology with the owner of Keystrokes, where I have worked for 4 years. We were discussing the feasibility of having someone trained on a few accounts, ready to do "x" number of reports a day without a fixed schedule, floating on a few different accounts.

If anyone is interested, please email the office. You can do so through the ads on the job seekers board.
This is a joke, right?  You endangered your 16--year-old by moving her in with a man, a crazy man at that?  Are you serious?  You obviously need some mental help for child endangerment. 

Sorry, missed the last part of your post. Just cut her off and stop sending work. When she asks, tell her you didn't think she was interested anymore.
Right?! haha...
Maybe she should just go test if she thinks it is so easy. I bet she would get a rude awakening then.
