Not to flame but every day there's posting after posting about how awful MQ is

Why does anyone still work there?

I don't get it.

What MQ is really doing and how they are crookedly counting lines, but someone keeps deleting my post.
Done! Thanx for posting this!! (nm)
I am not the only one posting here.
Others see it too because they are responding as well. I don't think that you are Zipper in the least. If you would notice the posts from Zipper, Frankie Boy and No whining the wording is almost exactly the same in their posts and Barney is defending them. If you ever saw the posts from Frankie Boy and Zipper, they were extremely offensive. No one in their right mind would think they are funny or want them back on the board.
thanks to all for posting
your post touched me most because i about your same age (52) and now have a 3 yr old to ride. I tried to send to your e/m but it wouldn't send (said invalid e/mail)... My husband told me (ex-racerider) to ride in the corral til we got used to each other -- i thought, 2 hours in a corral? -- i've always just rode out in the open...but now i find that i've spent these last 3 wk exclusively in the corral except for 2 outings when a friend could go with me. I feel like all my molecules have started to respond to the movement under me again (pretty rusty), but was totally upset by those feelings of *&#%# ?? Hate to call it fear, because i have felt true fear before and this was different. But it was totally new to me and i didn't like it. Yesterday was better. I always had so much confidence before and its making me doubt myself to have had these fleeting feelings that day. This is probably about the best colt to have if i'm starting with a young horse (which i also didn't plan on doing, another story); he's been well-started and basically laid back and level headed...again, thanks for your post (and to all). jml
Thanks for posting this...

Some of my stuff has been acting weird, too.  Just curious...have you tried uninstalling the Update w/ Service Pack?  Long story short, my DBF is in IT, said to uninstall the update, but when I tried it said "this update cannot be uninstalled."  Oh great!!!  Guess I should have known to have him install a Service Pack manually.  They can screw things up big-time sometimes if they're not done right. 

Anyway, ditto on the heads up folks.

Thanks for posting that ...
I'm a real sucker for cute animal stuff ... now I want a squirrel LOL
blah blah
How sad. Thanks for posting this
I am sorry about posting this here, but
I need help asap.  I asked on the tech board about a couple of things:  1.  Since I installed VWPlayer on my PC, it has been running a lot slower and my screen has been freezing causing me to lose jobs.  Also, everywhere I look for directions on backing up autocorrect, it says something about look in C:ProgramFilesMicrosoftOffice and then it says office10, but my only option is to look in Office and when I do, it does not say macros.  I have MS Word 2000 if that helps.  Also, I just recently added some memory (going from 128 to 384 after addng 256)  Are there any techies around?  Thanks for all your help!!
Thanks for posting...
hat is what I make now as an MT, of course, which is par.

do they have a different name/classification/description now for that job duty?

the AAMT is always boasting how they are going to help transition MTs into the technology, but have yet to offer ANYthing more, as to how, when, for whom, etc.

I am keeping my fingers crossed that this does not mean a cut in pay...

appreciate the input...

Post anytime. We all make mistakes and we all have been there. I posted something upset and I've been in the business for years. I got some smart mouthed answers and I received help that discounted that, so it evened out. Posting is good for you, you are as sick as your secrets and I am not going to judge anyone who posts upset. That's a good thing, get it off your chest. Don't run away. Stay and we'll support you IMHO. Good luck to you, sounds like you're having a tough time. Been there, done that, I showed up 2 hours late for a TAT in my black dress and got a nasty remark. I buried my Dad at 9:00 and went at 11:00 am to return my work. I said, "I just buried my Dad this morning." Didn't make a darned bit of difference. You get no sympathy from TAT excuses, believe me, one doc told me he didn't care who died, he just wanted his work. Stay, please.
She was posting under a different name

so, honestly, I'm new, what is THIS board for?
I think some of those are posting, above.

Thanks for posting
I imagine those shows do over dramatize everything. But I do hope it really did give your husband an overall appreciation for what you do. I work part-time, I couldn't even imagine working full-time and doing all of my mom/wife/housekeeper duties.

Yes, thanks for posting...SM
You can't always believe what you see on TV. All of that is edited to make for better ratings. It seemed like you both gained a little something from the experience though, so that is a plus.

If you don't mind me asking, what made you both decide you wanted to go on the show?
you are the one who is posting under different--sm
names, you little troll you. why don't you just stay off this board, Kikki, if you just hate everything, everybody, and your own life so much. you are pathetic. You had better find yourself some help. We all know who you are. The only one you are fooling is yourself. You are truly the devils spawn...and maybe you had better look that up to know what it means. go away!
where did my posting go?
I just posted something less than an hour ago about input on companies. Now it is not here?
Why don't you try posting it
on the job seeker's board that you need overflow/vacation help?  You may find some candidates that are willing to help.  If it needs to be local then state that the candidate would need to live in that area.  Just a suggestion.  Good luck.  Some transcriptionists like to help out and to try something different.  It is also a great way to network and meet new people.   
thank you for posting this

I saw a similar ad, maybe the same one as you, and I too wondered how much could be done in an hour.  It sounded like it could be fascinating but I too was apprehensive about how complicated it would be and what the hourly pay would amount to. 

I used to do this kind of thing back in the 80s and charged at a minimum $25 an hour based on the time it took me to transcribe.  I got plenty of work, but it was often a headache trying to follow along and keep track of who was saying what, etc.  If it was really difficult, I'd contact them after an hour or so into it and tell them it was going to be pretty expensive and give them the option of taking it elsewhere.  They usually told me to keep going and they'd pay whatever it cost and then tell their friends so I'd keep getting more and more of it.  Sometimes it seemed like no amount of money was worth the hassle of it!! 

thank you for posting that....
a lot of us who work for -you know who- are really vulnerable right now because we are looking for an out. If it sounds to good to be true it usually is.
Try posting this on
the company board. I have also read a lot of negative things about them, actually just after I turned down an offer by them for another job. Sounds like I might have made the right decision but again, post on the company board and I'm sure you'll get feedback there.
Wow, with so many posting here
I think making over 40 thousand a year is a good living, for this job. I don't know why so many say they can't pay their bills or this profession pays less than minimum wage. Last I heard, minimum wage is way less than 50 thousand a year, and also being able to stay home. That, to me, is a good living wage. I don't make 50 thousand, but I would like to and am going to try.
LOL! Thanks for posting this.


Just re-posting about speakers, as I did not get any responses: Note: I have the couple speaker brands that were originally mentioned written down.

I would like to get away from headphones too.

Where do I find those speakers mentioned (or other good ones I can use)?

Right now I am plugging my headphones into $30 speakers I got at Best Buy. They sound crappy without my headphones.

Thanks for any help you can provide.

I do not know how to post a subject line without posting a message as well. Sometimes just a word or two would do, but it will not get accepted if I don't include a message??? Thanks in advance.
OMG, sorry for posting like this, but . . .
if you haven't in a while, you need to defrag computer, preferably after you run these programs.  Actually, there is so much information out there which can be confusing and, like I said, daunting, but please choose what's best for you.  I'm sure others here have great ideas too - shoot, I could always use help too. 
LOL! Thanks for posting this. nm
Hopefully, you will soon only be posting with
Then why are you here...just to keep posting that you
Nobody's stopping you. If anyone else wants to join, then they will. OTherwise, we don't need it posted every 2 seconds to go over there.
I completely understand why you don't like it. I don't feel the same way, but I do understand. BUT, just leave then. No reason to stick around if it's just to post that you're not posting here.

And, yes I do care about those things. BUT, the owner isn't the one who did it...the previous owner did...all while sitting back and telling us she hated offshoring.
Thank you for posting this...
I was just mentioning the same thing to my husband last night. My exact words were, "I'm not as fast as I used to be for some reason."

I also used to type 300 lph with no problem. Now, I feel fortunate to break 200.

Job posting

I posted on the job seeker's board a couple weeks ago asking for assistance with a project I was doing and I wanted to say thank you so much to all who emailed me.  I am sorry I was not able to get back to many of you.  I was overwhelmed with work at that time (not complaining!) and received so many responses that I couldn't keep up with acknowledging them all.  So, thank you.

One interesting thing I learned is that there are many, many Indian companies who replied as well.  They are here and lurking for sure.  If you ever post on that board, if you are not interested in oursourcing work to India I would suggest that you put that in your add.  I was surprised at how many responded and how they tried to undercut my fair wage offered to get the job and how they persistently emailed and repeatedly interrupted my work with IMs even though I told them I was not interested.  It was a learning experience for sure. 

Just wanted to thank those who offered their assistance and share my experience.

re-posting this

I am re-posting this because it got deleted with an earlier thread that was deleted. I had wrote it in response to a rather angry post.   I am not re-posting this to be argumentative with anyone, just because I feel I need to get it off my chest so to speak. So here goes...

Maybe I am the only one, but do we really have to bash each other on spelling errors or typos when we post on this board? I get so tired of worrying about what I type in a message on here because inevitably someone will point out what is spelled wrong or some grammar issue or whatever. After typing for 8 hours a day and having to be perfect, this board should be a SAFE place to get support, encouragement, or help not some kind of place for some people to get their kicks on feeling superior to someone else. Yes spelling and grammar should be second nature to us and it is VERY important, but I don't get paid to proof my posts nor do I really care to. Just my 2 cents here.

Thanks for posting! I also would like to
thank a couple more of you who sent e-mail responses, especially one who was willing to share a personal experience. You guys are the BEST!!!

I also wanted to share with you that I did pull up my criminal record on-line yesterday. I had been thinking that I would go to one of the local PDs and retrieve this information, which they are not allowed to charge more than $20.00 for in my state, but then found, on the state bureau of investigations site, a link to another site that would provide instant results for $15.00. I was a little uncomfortable providing my SSN since I was having to provide my name, credit card number, and address information, but they did not require the SSN to produce results and I think the only drawback may have been that I could get results of more than one person with the same name. I did, however, provide my maiden name as middle name, and I was not married yet at the time the incident took place. The results came back showing no record found, so that has given me a little more confidence, but the replies that I have received here are more of a boost to my self esteem than anything else, and for that I am very THANKFUL to you all!

Where do I go from here? Well, for now I will not be applying, mostly because of discussions with my husband. Our vehicles are both nearing their last legs and I do have part-time work for a local lady, though I really need to be earning more as, although all of our bills are current as of today, it is getting to the point that I do not think that will hold true for too much longer. I received a Christmas gift yesterday from a company that I have not worked for in almost a year and a half, and am wondering if it is a sign that I could go back to working for them part-time to help out. When I left them it was not supposed to be a permanent thing, but we were having some extreme circumstances with one of our children and the school situation, which is still not as healthy as we would like and has left us driving to and from the school each day, which I would not mind so much if it weren't for the above-mentioned car situation. This is also part of the decision not to apply at the hospital for now, as I need to be able to go in and meet their needs, not expect them to bend to meet my needs, but it is something that I now feel more confident about doing and know that I will do this at some point in the future!

Sorry this is so long, but wanted you all to know how much I appreciate you taking the time to share your knowledge, both here and via e-mail.

Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!!

Well, thanks I think for the posting about possible
management because you think I might have stated my point well. Nope, not that, never have wanted to be in management and the other Curry or fingers, you are barking up the wrong tree.
thank you for posting this

I have been copying segments of a lot of posts (I am not a creative writer) and finally came up with a pretty good letter.  I do plan to mail it out everywhere I can.  I have also been thinking.... why can't we write our local hospitals and put them on the spot?  Just a thought. 

I have so much time off now due to lack of work... fills the time to do this, constructive anyway. 

Thanks again!


Those posting
the jobs are only recruiters for the company, I would imagine.
Because of the Top Posting
Rather than let a discussion wither away and die a natural death since neither 'side' will concede, people repeatedly keep top-posting the same subject, thereby drawing out the drama.
how come that you are still posting? ..nm
I like my QA person, but I also know she's not posting
here.  She's very professional at her job and doesn't need to laugh at people or post their mistakes in a public forum.  I'll admit, there are some funny MT mistakes out there.  However, I found the tone of most of the responses offensive because the mistakes weren't humorous whatsoever.  The original post asked for FUNNY mistakes, not making FUN of people's mistakes.  THAT is what offends me about this thread.
Same companies posting...

Have been a member of MT Stars for quite a while-Has anyone else noticed in the Job Seeker's Board it is always the same "Big companies" looking for new MTs.  Makes ya wonder why these companies are always looking for MTs.  Transcend and Spheris come to mind real quick, but I'm sure there are others who chronically cannot keep MTs as well.  Just talking out loud...What are your thoughts about this???

To CuriousMT regarding job posting with
I just saw your question about where I saw the job posting. It was right here on MTStars job board, was first posted on 7/18, in case you want to check it out. They offered a $5000 relocation fee too--was quite impressed with that.
and yet they are posting on MT board!
and all that hard work paid off so they could spend time with the riff-raft on MT board. sweet. i bet her parents are real proud of all that money they spent on her education. hee.
Okay, here's my posting. Your turn!

Maybe your multitude of friends you go out socializing with aren't available today and that's why you're trolling MT boards on Saturday afternoon?

Saturday's my day off and I come to these boards to check in. I no longer do MT because I saw what happens to people who have no life away from their computer. I have a career outside the home and have people to talk to that aren't behind a monitor wolfing down a bag of Cheetos. You're a perfect example.

Now, before your imaginary entourage of social butterflies stops by to take you to the country club, hurry up and post your angry response. This is actually amusing, and makes me so glad that I don't have to deal with the mentally ill on message boards to take up time before my next shift.

I have better things to do than argue with the socially retarded, but do enjoy the board today and have fun! Clearly that's all you have. 

That's understandable...since everyone posting here is always...
so full of love , it's easy to get on the defensive, right?  Heck, I feel I'd better duck every time I post. 
Well, I'm posting as me. I certainly hope
people can tell my posts from hers!!
