Where there's a will there's a way - keep asking and keep talking, someone will help you. Ask the company you work for to help you out here, perhaps they have a plan for you if they value your association.

This is a wild guess
Do you think he means the children's cartoon character "Pokemon"? Maybe the patient thinks they're real, or maybe it's how he describes his family.
Wild guess, but might get you closer

1.  of any murmurs.

2.  funduscopic exam

3.  Eyegrounds??

Does anyone work on wireless?
Is this a good option?? I am not able to get cable, DSL, and satellite is too slow. Is wireless a good option for transcription when there don't seem to be any jobs for dial-up anymore? Thanks.
"Do you think the option to Open With would work?
Right mouse click on a WP5.1 file and choose Open with from the pop-up menu. If Word is available, this may help to make it easier to open them using Word, although I still doubt it will search each document's content. Sorry.
WiFlyer - Wireless dial up - does it work?

I found something called WiFlyer for "wireless dialup".  I think you plug it into your phone jack and then a little antennae to your notebook and you can move around the house freelying without a phone cord.  I wonder if it makes dial up any faster?  Has anyone used this?  What did you think? 


I have MJ also and if I have too many programs open on my computer, my phone will not work. nm
I work on a Dell XPS and am completely wireless except for headphones...

Wireless keyboard and mouse; wireless pedal in the form of a Playstation wireless controller, although I am sure that only works with Express Scribe.  You can buy wireless headphones, but I have not invested in them as of yet.  Being wireless, I have found it very comfortable to work in my recliner chair. I can even put my feet up while using the joystick on the Playstation controler to play the sound.  My ergo keyboard fits in my lap, which some may find a litte weird, but I am total comfortable without any aches, pains, numbness, fatigue. Mouse goes on the arm of the chair (works only with opitcal mouse, no wheel).  Works for me.  Good luck!!!!

Doesn't work with "wireless" - my laptop is wireless sm
And my tower is wireless, does this mean I can't use it at all? Sorry to be so uninformed was looking forward to the 2 computers,1 screen and keyboard. ???
My friend let me borrow hers and...
I tried it for a few weeks.  Felt nice while using it, but once I start typing the pain returns.  : (
ppl who borrow your 'puter

I own my own computer for and work as an IC from home. 


I have a question regarding computer etiquette, I guess you'd call it.  Do you consider it rude or out of line for another family member who is visiting your home to use your computer and to do so without asking?  I am uncomfortable about this but since I didn't speak up the first time it happened, I feel like I didn't set a boundary and to do so now would be tough.


Personally, I would never dream of using someone else's computer.  But that's just me.


What do you think of this? 

Anone MTers use wireless connection for MT work such as Alltel sm
Does it work well - all in can get in my area is dial-up at 26.4 SLOW! 
My friend got to borrow one from people that did not like it,
Send yours over for 3 meals a day, and to borrow all
Beg, borrow, or steal not to have that payment be late!!!
It does not matter how little you have left on it.  Late is late in my opinion.
Definitely real. Anyone who believes it isn't can borrow my ADHD kid for a while.
You can't just open the attachment. You need to save it to a file and then open SM
your wave player and load it. 
Also, hoping there is more work.... but guess what!
Just got up to start my shift 1 a.m.- and there is no work in the system?
Pay depends on where you work, I guess.

I know if I have a midnight deadline, it's 4:00 a.m. my time because I'm on the east coast and my national is out of California.

Good luck with the 3rd shift.  I was thinking of that myself, but my husband has been doing 3rd shift for 7 years and I do first shift and we tell everyone that's why we get along so good.

P.S.  He usually tries to keep his all night routine on the weekends, (his shift is 10:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m.M- Th) but sometimes he'll stay up on Friday morning and go to bed at 11:00, but it messes him up sometimes because his week starts Sundays with a 12 hour third shift from 7:00 p.m. to 7:00 a.m.  You'll get used to it.  He loves it.  No alarm clocks. No morning rush.

I guess SOMEONE is satisfied with where they work (sm)

I guess you would need to ask the MTs at the company you work for.
And when the US MTs refuse to work for that guess
where the work will go? 
I guess maybe it depends on who you work for...
All I know is my boss is well aware of every single report that I proof every single day. I have specific accounts that are my sole responsibility, so if an error like this drug mistake got through on one of my docs' reports, it would be easy to know who saw it last.
I guess she mistook the work for a Nathans Hot Dog.
I guess I should say who work for a company that has you travel
to different on-site facilities and work for a few weeks providing all travel expenses and then on to a different facility?
I guess I am unfamilar about the rules of an IC. I work
through a company that has the clinic as a client. Do those same rules apply. When I was hired by the company I was hired as a part time IC.

I guess that depends on how many hours you work. sm
Do you save yourself 2 hours because of your Expander and then quit for the day? Or do you work more hours because your expansions allow you to = more on the paycheck?
Guess what? When he's at work all day at HIS job, he's not spending time with the family
I guess it depends on what company or client you work for. nm
Okay, I guess I'm asking how can a company require you to work 8 hours a day, SM

require you to produce a certain amount of lines, but then only pay you for the lines?  My personal opinion is that we need to redefine this whole production pay thing because the MTs are getting screwed in the deal.  If we are paid on production, then we should be able to produce the minimum and then our work day is done unless we choose to work the entire 8 hours.  If they want us on the system for 8 hours a day, then they should pay us hourly plus incentive line rates.

I personally think that companies should pay all MTs a base hourly pay, like say $12 per hour and then 5 cpl on top of that or something to that effect.  Or say $12 an hour and you have to produce at least 1000 in an 8 hour period and anything above 1000 in that 8 hour period you get an extra cpl rate as incentive.  I would be working my tail feathers off if I was offered that.

I guess because I work for a local group of doctors
I have an overabundance of work and would love a break. Too back I can't subcontract work (I'm an employee). I have had as many as 250 patients in one week. Today is a low day with just 26 patients coming in, but a lot of days it's upwards of 50 patients so I have 50 reports to type in a given day.
Well supposed to be working and GUESS WHAT NO WORK AGAIN AT AMHERST MQ. No doubt in my mind that
they could care less about the MT, if you make money or starve. These people are absolutely crazy. There is no doubt in my mind.
Guess what? If companies fired the shoddy MTs, they'd lose more than half their work force in eve
company! Pretty sad state of things, but that's the quality out there right now, and AMERICAN MTs.
wild life
Lets just leave the wild life alone, ya know?  *Man* has screwed enough up on this beautiful earth..Leave the wild life alone.
Wild stab
Assuming this is another MD who is reading a radiology report, I would expect he would say something along the lines of:

"Reviewing the CT scan, the current report demonstrates no free air or fluid, but the comment is really unchanged from previous CT scan."

That is just one possibility. Maybe if you are able to listen again, something will jump out at you.
remember when they used to have a wild card?
If you could bring somebody back with a wild card, who would it be?  I'd bring back Chris. 
I second that, Wild Blue works well (sm)
for me. Tried Hughes a few years back and it was awful but maybe they are improved now. Have had Wildblue for 2 years and it works pretty good.
Possibly Wild Blue?....sm
I don't live in Oregon, but am in rural western Washington. I know a few MTs who use Wild Blue and are happy with it, so that would be my only suggestion.

I did want to say that I have been using satellite for about three years now (a small local company), have been on no less than 4 different MT platforms, and never had any problems. Yes, satellite can be susceptible to extreme weather...but if you're in a rural area you're about as likely to have your power go out anyway in extreme weather!
Best of luck.
Pretty wild, I have not had really anything happen since my mom died 09/26/04 except how Jen became
diagnosed with her Wilms tumor.  The day prior to it she'd had her normal checkup and the doctor totally missed the tumor (hard to since it was huge, 15 x 11 x 5 cm...was not protruding though unless she was flat on her back and naked and then only a tiny bit), but felt if you palpated the abdomen. (Dr. cut my daughter's ear while trying to clean wax but failed to mention it to her what he was trying to do, messed up the rest of the exam since she was crying and freaked out from it)  The very next day after her check up though, she fell off the kiddie see-saw (18" fall).....my husband likes to think my mom pushed her off, which subsquently caused a blood vessel on the tumor to burst, which made her pee blood, which got me to get her to the doctor's, who proto found her tumor.  Had she not been diagnosed then, in the next week or so the tumor would have probably burst or spread or somehow not have been encapsulated anymore and things would have been a lot worse. So my mom helped her get treatment a lot earlier than she otherwise would have probably.  I thinks it's nice to think about it this way.
Wild Blue satellite internet

Anybody currently using Wild Blue satellite internet?  Any responses good or bad would be greatly appreciated.

Well, that's all folks. All gifts have been given. It's been a wild ride
Here is a great site and you can wild search
too if you can understand a portion of the name.


I also use WIld Blue and have no problems. Both my jobs are FTP, though.
My computer has gremlins! My mouse has gone wild. sm
Last night when I put my mouse over the "Start" button to shut down, it suddenly went crazy.  It began moving all over the desktop, things started popping up, it was like a wild animal!  I thought it was just a dirty mouse and cleaned it.  When I booted up this morning, the same thing happened.  Then it settled down, and it's working fine.  Now I'm not sure if it's the mouse or the computer.  I'm the same person who had the "wavy" screen yesterday.  Has anyone ever had this happen?  I'm getting paranoid, thinking maybe I have picked up some strange bug on the net.  Any advice appreciated.  Thanks so much for all the help.
How do I get it ST to open when escription is open?

not sure about you, but we have several wild animal care and education centers...
The best way to start is to volunteer.

We have like Messinger Woods and Hawk Creek around here, like animal sanctuaries, where they have owls, eagles, deer, all sort of animals they need to take care of. You can always visit one and ask questions. I would love that, too, only I can not get my boyfriend interested. I would love to even volunteer.

Sounds funny, but what about a zoo...same thing, you can volunteer at first, see if you like it, and I believe those positions offer decent pay...?
Only during the summer. Wild colored toe socks in winter.
Isn't that wild?!! At least a few people will be needed as MTs/editors in the years to come. nm
Yes, call your local vet, any vet, and ask for the wild rabbit rescuer in your area.
There is always someone nearly everywhere. If you can't find one, please write me and I'll search for someone for you if you're short on time.  They are so worth saving.  Mom might still be around. Let's hope so! 
Dilemma! Tomorrow is picture day and my 5 yo just went wild w/a jug of blue food coloring --


both hands and the entire lower half of his face are now bright, royal blue.. Will this wash off by morning???

I would let DD go with Habitat for Humanity or a church mission, but not that wild party stuff.
Saute the innards with other veggies, wild rice, sun dried toms. then
