Please see my question on company board -posted on wrong board
Need help again with this silly MS word. Thanks. Over on Technical board.

Are you the one who posted on the Ask the Dr board?

I go to "The Stop Smoking Center" for online support.  I quit for eight years, but this past 13 months have been so crazy that I relapsed exactly one year ago.  I've been peeved at DH and stressed over a lot of stuff, so I lit up one night while out with a friend.  I quit again for three months using Zyban, but relapsed yet again after stopping that.  I do OK during the day with not smoking, but DH smokes outside at home so it's tough to stay quit being around him.  I just keep making excuses to not quit.  That means I'm just not ready yet.  People handle their emotions and stress fine without smoking.  I handled everything fine for eight years without smoking, and those eight years were pretty hairy, too..  For me, it's a question of replacing my bad emotional crutch with a good one.  (Exercise!)

Good for you for making the decision!  You can do it!  Google the support board I told you about, and I'll probably be around here if you want to buddy up or anything.

This is posted on the job board:

...7 cpl for a 65-char. line with room for increase. Please send resume and place "ESL MT" in the subject line. These are very difficult accents...

Is this serious??  THAT is why there is nothing left to this profession.  Applying for and accepting jobs like this is what has been the kiss of death for MTs.  I hate to think what they would pay for non ELSs - 5 cpl?

I have posted this before on another board
My DH cousin jokeingly said to be a Transcriptionist all you have to do is know how to type and spell. I said "okay, spell pterygoid muscle." After a long blank stare he said, "There is no such thing". Like I said he truely was joking but so many people think there is nothing to this job.
Look on the job board, someone just posted a weekend only job - nm
It should be posted on the Company board, please.
On another board here, I posted a news
article which actually identified this New Zealand company as being owned by a HUGE American national....everyone laughed at me and said this was old news - offshoring. But it was sure news to me that it was my company and now in New Zealand. Personally, I'd love to transfer there. Lots of nice sheep and trees.
sorry...posted on wrong board
Someone posted abbreviations before this board went
bonkers and I had copied it down. When site went down, so did my copy. Does anyone have a good site for abbreviations? Thanks.
I also posted on the political board, but -
I did not refer to Obama or McCain and the political side of it, I am interested more in how it is effecting us in the United States. Everyone else is posting here about their jobs and that is what I am talking about. I don't care about policies right now, I am wondering how every day life is going to change.

And, no, I am not being rude, just explaining myself.
Just posted on the Political Board
a long rant on this - please refer to that. But also see this website.

It's time to take a stand MTs!

If you are the OP, you also posted this on the Company board
As being a position with Keystrokes. I didn't think KS hired ICs?

Color me confused but...?
At the top of the Company Board is posted ....s/m
' Don't make your decisions based on someone else's recommendation - Administration '
One guy posted on message board, saying he was on his laptop in the car.
He said they are doomed if they do not open up the highway going the opposite direction, as you said. And, fuel is an issue, needless to say.

Mandatory evacuation should have been ordered soon, they are saying, as opposed to voluntary.
Okay, Top Ten Reasons Why... posted on comedy board

This one is good.

I believe they are posted on "Job Seeker's Board"
Posted on Coder's board, but cannot get a reply
This is an awesome link... Thanks so much, I posted this on another board (sm)
Was referred to this Tips & Techniques... No clue what it meant... This explains a lot. Thanks so much.
Bloopers can be posted on the Comedy board.
Hi Donna. I posted to you on the autoimmune board

Other people have posted about the ad on the company board--
--but the posts were deleted. I'm not sure what's up with that.
Administrator I posted my name for looking for an MT job on your job resume board and I dont see it
We have not moved this topic to the Company board. Perhaps you posted it
there initially thinking it was the Main board.
Re above message - just posted on technical board. Need help badly.
As always, political posts should be posted on the Politics board.
Posted another quick and good one on recipe board for you.
Posted on the Gab Board about name suggestions for my cookie business if anyone would like to help
I'm not sure how busy the Gab Board is compared to this board, so I thought I'd post here as an fyi. Thanks for any help :)
Sorry to disappoint you but I've never posted on the newbie board!
I agree. And as someone posted on another board here, it's hard to care about it when the dictat
Being these are pretty darn important documents, it's equally as important for us to get it right as it is for them to slow down so we can truly actually hear what they're trying to say. It's a joint effort that often falls short on their end for whatever reason.
On job board. Some goof posted 11:50 hour for 2 years experience

To the service who posted a job ad on the Main board, the reason your post
was removed is because all job ads are to be posted on the Job Seeker's board. Any "well-deserving MT" knows to look at that forum for that "chance to work for an excellent company and make an excellent line rate". Feel free to post your ad there.

Thank you.
MT Week prizes are posted on the Main board. Watch for them and then
follow the directions to enter. If you see a post that has a winner announced beneath it, that prize is no longer available.
This was posted earlier today on the Gab Board and now I am reading this statement from this Pakista

The mtstars.com domain name has been hijacked, so this website will probably go down and then come back up with old information (not current posts). We are setting up at mtstars.net and taking legal action to regain the mtstars.com domain. Please do not post at this site further as the domain has been taken over by an offshore entity.

Thank you for your loyalty over the years, but know that we are not gone. We plan to have mtstars.net up and running very soon ...

WMD, does not seem silly to me when that was our justification to send our troops to Iraq..why is it silly??  It was a lie and you Chimp Boy lovers have to try to hang onto anything you can to back up the jerk for his invasion into a soverign country that meant no harm to us, in fact, we were their friends just a few years back, even sold WMD to Saddam, which we then destroyed in the Gulf War and during our sanctions in the 1990s..
Silly you
It may look silly, but, (sm)

you could try using a pair of toddler training pants (or something similar) while you are supervising him.  I have a female dog that was injured in a fight with one of my other dogs and she would not stop licking the wound.  Since it was on her shoulder, I got one of my grandsons old shirts and put it on her, didn't look all that good, but it did the trick long enough to get it to heal. I would suggest you make sure it is something fabric, as the disposable types may be too easy to chew up and swallow, causing a whole new set of problems to deal with.  By the way, let me just say thank you for being a good pet owner and having your pet neutered.

Not silly
Why is this silly?  If you do type those without getting paid for it, basically you are working for free.  Do you think management works for free?  How about the CEO?  As an IC getting paid on production, any typing without being pain, is me giving them my precious time for free.
I'm not being silly

I should have removed "you" and inserted "I." 

I have nothing but the greatest admiration for anyone who has the time and patience to learn these programs, the memories to retain the information (tpwbttop ...), and the brain power to read quickly and make the decision over what you what lickity split.

I'm glad to finally know why I hated school so much. 

to Silly Me
You've got that right
Not silly. Go for it!
I have around 50 pair of underwear for the same reason and enough clothes to wear a different outfit every weekend for a year I am sure! I hate to do laundry and at times would just rather buy new. LOL!
Silly Me

I should have known this. Thanks for the info.  

Maybe he got into the medicine storage room? LOL I used to type for a doc that would enunciate words so funny that he sounded like he was acting. I think those ER docs get so busy they have to get silly for awhile to make sure they don't go bonkers!!!
Doc dictates, " He presents looking like a kidney stone".   

The admin. wants to put this entire thing on me.  She is stating things in comments that are so wrong.

You girls take it easy.  Thanks for all your responses.  I know my business, contracts with ICs, pays, etc and I do not need this stress and the admin is wanting me to somehow show her things that Doris Latta has created in Word or something? Not sure...........  but I was able to clear this up with the Labor Board and everyone else that had to have a response.

So 10-4 and I am out!  XO 


ha ha...don't you look silly now
to look bad...when it was you that were wrong....ha ha

Open mouth...insert foot.
probably silly but.....
what does the little fire thing beside some of the posts mean?
thats silly. what are they afraid of if
I mean come on, we won't become millionaires.  There should NOT be a limit on how much you make.  A raise per year for cost of living, a raise or higher rate for experienced and good MTs, and also a raise for putting up with the BS.
silly boycott
If you observe the boycott, a- you bought gas yesterday, b- you don't need to buy gas.

Personally, I know the boycott (even if everyone follows it) won't work. Someone, somewhere WILL need gas, then everyone will head back to the pumps. My job is over 50 miles away, and I drive a truck (no I'm not changing, i LOVE my truck), so I have to gas up every week without fail, and I gas up when my truck says to, not when some unknown person says to (not referring to the OP, referring to whoever started this movement). Plus, I work in oil and gas, have to support my OWN measly paycheck (and yes, I get paid peanuts).

Sorry, just sounding off ... feel free to ignore me. Blast me if 'you' (the unknown you) must, but I won't pay attention, that's just me :)
