I got a new monitor, flat screen, but

What is good to clean an LCD computer screen that wont harm the black plastic monitor itself.
I have a flat screen already, but sm
it is small.  I would like to go larger.  Thanks for posting.  This answers my questions as well.  Didn't know if bigger is always better, but sounds like it works well for others. 
Yes! Yes! Yes! Flat screen!
I have a 19 inch flat screen and love it! Once you get a flat screen you will never go back! Also the weight difference betwen them is huge! To can pick up that flat screen and move it around anywhere you like. Would highly recommend. PS. I have a Westinghouse 19 inch,  and I would recommend a 19 to 21 incher!

I have a 19" flat screen monitor and I love it to pieces !
I just got a 22" flat panel LCD Monitor for $119. sm
at BestBuy. I absolutely love it. It will automatically adjust. It has an "auto adjust" feature. It is a "plug & play" when you hook it up to your computer.

You will like it.

All of my computers are Dell and the new LCD monitor is Westinghouse. Works fine!!

The bigger the better. Flat screen.
I bought a 17" Samsung flat screen for under 200 bucks. I like
what do you use to clean computer screen?
can i use lens cleaner like for my eyeglasses? alcohol?   thanks.
Is there a reason does anyone know that you are to unplug your LCD computer monitor to clean it. Why
would they tell you to do that.
Have you tried adjusting your monitor screen sm
up or down a hair or two? I bought a new monitor for Christmas and had headaches for a week before I realized it needed to go up about 1/4-1/2 inch. I moved it and the headaches went away. Just a thought.

It's a stain on the front of monitor screen. Sorry, DH
Anyone successful with full screen monitor sm
hooked connected to a laptop and how did you get it to work.  I have been trying to get my monitor and laptop to interact with one another, but no such look.  Can anyone help me with this?  I do not think I can look at this laptop screen all day.  Thanks!!
Is there a way to show caps locked on the monitor screen?

Or does it depend on the keyboard?  If it depends on keyboard, how can I program it to show up on my monitor in the bold green letters I have seen that some can do?  Anyone know?



I bought a glare reducing screen to put on monitor from ebay. nm
For tired eyes, get an anti-glare screen to put on monitor. Amazing difference. I had


Buying a new computer and cant decide on LCD monitor or regular monitor. Any opinions out there. The

EXText Word Client - blank screen everytime I give "ok" in the DIS screen
I am using EXText Word Client software with Transnet. I am getting a blank screen everytime I give "ok" in the DIS screen (patient details info screen). I have uninstalled and reinstalled the software an upgraded but still errors out the same way. Are there any EXtexters who could help?

EXText word client blank screen everytime I give ok in DIS screen
Thanks your suggestion was very valuable. At a specified time (which the technical side say, when the net speed is very good), it is working without a problem at all (whereas this was half working and half not working before even at this time), but other times, still the same problem exists.

Actually the blank screen comes every time I give "ok" in the DIS screen (patient details info screen).
Screen Resolution/Font/Screen Percentage
My eyes are tired all the time. I usually have my monitor set at 800 x 600 pixels and use Bookman at 10 font in Word at 111% in the normal layout. What might be a better viewing screen setting to use?
It's not a flat 30%
My mother-in-law managed an income-based place.  What they do is figure 30% of your income BUT they deduct so much for each dependent.   It should fall between 300 and 400 after deductions, which is still good rent consider housing prices these days.   Depending on where she lives, she may find a mobile home less expensive or in some towns, private homes are cheaper.  Tell her good luck and it will work out!
Flat screens rock!

When I worked at a hospital that had regular computer monitors, by the end of the day my eyes would be really tired and I usually had a headache, no matter how I tried to adjust the brightness/colors/fonts on the computer.

At home I have a flat screen and even after working all day, I could come home and chat literally for several hours using my flat screen and my eyes would not be tired at all.

I highly recommend them! I have a ViewSonic 17", which is plenty big enough for what I need, which includes transcribing, internet, some Photoshopping/graphics, and playing computer games like Freecell and Scrabble for relaxation.

I charge a flat fee of $30.00 to compose
Once I receive the check/money order, you receive the letter/resume.  LOL  (I do not work for free.) 
I used to charge a flat rate

If they don't like it, then they'll get it right the first time.  I think 2.00 is fair since you have to pull it up, etc., and it is taking time out of your day. 

You are basically charging for your time, but why shouldn't you?  It's not like it was your error. 

I have been in this business a long time and I am in a funky mood, and let me tell you, I am about ready to charge out the ying-yang for everything from now on because so does every other business operating in the USA.

Say what you will, but I did "walk into" this after being a nurse and I have not fallen flat o
face. In fact, I have been an MT for about seven years now (not a long time, but long enough to realize that I haven't fallen flat on my face). I enjoy my job and I do it very well. Not everybody can do this, but I can and my nursing helped me tremendously.

really? i thought flat screens were harder
on the eyes -- boy, that is good to know otherwise...
Flat rate long distance sm

I have been using a Lanier for dictation since November and got one of those not so nice letters from AT&T giving me 5 days to stop or they would switch me to 10 cents per minute. (Not in this lifetime will I pay that.)  Anyway, I checked around (only took about 2 hours to look) and didn't care for anything I found and really did not want to switch companies as it is a PITA. So, I checked on the AT&T website to see what else they offered. They have a business plan for 49.95 a month plus tax-total cost around 70.00 a month. I called and talked to them and asked them at least five times if I can use dictation on this plan and they said yes, I could. I wouldn't  get anymore nasty letters from them. Instead of putting in another line, I just switched my residential over to business and it's only going to cost me $20.00 more a month than what I am already paying right now. Not a bad deal at all for unlimited use. You have to sign up for one year, but heck, if I can work and not be hassled by them, it will be worth it.

On-call like she says with a flat minimum rate - sm
would be the way to go. My DH used to have to do on-call for some equipment his company had in a local plant here. He was on-call one week out of every month as it was rotated with 3 other techs so they would have a break as this was 24/7 for 1 week. We got the odd call at 3 a.m. which stunk and he had to go in right away to deal with the problem, but he got $400 extra a week for doing this, and it was over 5 years, and he probably got called in maybe 5 times, so it can be worthwhile. He hated it just because he felt tied down that week and could not have more than 2 beers those nights, but he lived, and it helped out our finances a lot. I missed it when it was gone, but by then I was working so it really did not matter. He also got extra if he had to go in in the middle of the night. During regular business hours he did not, but any other time he got mucho extra $$$$ on top of the $400, very sweet deal. I think it would have to be worth my while to be on-call, especially if they happened to call you in a lot. If you do it, I'd leave a clause that the fees were to be reviews and renegotiated/increased as necessary at the end of 3 months or something like that.
Sorry! Wrists at 180 degrees in same flat plane as
? switching monitors to flat panel sm
I have ordered a flat screen monitor from Dell and will be switching from a 14 inch dinosaur to a 17 inch flat screen on an Acer tower. I just wonder if I am going to have problems or does it "adjust itself" without problems. Need more desk space. TIA
Our company pays a flat rate
based on the length of the meeting, and they schedule multiple meetings so you can choose which one to attend (during your shift or outside of your shift). Of course, they also pay downtime, so it sounds like our companies have somewhat different philosophies.
My husband read about that in the book The World Is Flat.
Makes me mad! What has happened to our country!?
Have you tried placing your keyboard in neutral (flat) position? (nm)

I got my computer locally so as not to deal with Dell and Fed Ex etc. I have a flat panel and I
think it is okay but not as clear as the regular monitors. I think if you pay a fortune for an LCD you get great clearness but with the 3 or 400 dollar ones it is adequate. I live in PA also. I got it because it is better for your eyes.
Reco'd reading on outsourcing: The World is Flat, by Thomas Friedman

I just started this book about globalization of the workforce. Friedman is a NY Times reporter and his book has been on the bestseller list for months. Anyone concerned about outsourcing should check this out. I've got a long way to go but even after just a couple of chapters, I'm finding it very insightful and true to my experiences.

I read an interview with the author that appeared in Wired Magazine a few months back. My favorite quote of his goes something like this:
"When I was a kid my mother told me to eat all my vegetables because people in India are starving. I tell my kids to do all their homework because people in India are hungry--FOR THEIR JOBS!"

PS: My company does not outsource any transcription!

This really sucks as the article said it would impact heavy users only.  My cable bill is already high but to be charged for actual using will skyrocket my bill.  I think I could spit nails right now.  I can post the article if anyone is interested.  They said it will be a trial period.  Anyone else use Time Warner?

I already thought of that, but I hear they aren't worth crap.
sometimes have to clean
you know you can take the ball out and clean it? If not, turn mouse over and twist plate direction of arrows.
have you tried the can of air to clean it?
this is a post I just read:

My Microsoft Digital Media Pro keyboard is quite nice. The keys are all attached to the front of the keyboard. Just unscrew the back and the front lifts up with all the keys. On the bottom part of the keyboard remains the rubber/silicon and circuit board, which can be sprayed off. I then submerge the top keyboard in scalding hot soapy water to clean it.
Nothing to do with MT but does anyone have any ideas on how to clean - sm
a linoleum bathroom floor? All my bathroom throw rugs (4-large bathroom) have left yellow stains under where each lies.  I presume the rubber somehow reacted with the floor.  This has happened in both my bathrooms but much worse it the one which has a window.  Short of replacing the floor does anyone have any ideas? TIA.
Let's clean up our board........sm
While it is certainly everyone's right to "agree to disagree", the mud slinging that unfortunately takes place here is usually not started by anyone who truly wants to get a point across.  I myself have gotten into some very heated discussions over issues related to our profession. But I've never stooped so low as to attack anyone personally.. and the minute the discussion starts getting ugly, I'm outta there!  There are people on these boards with no other purpose than to see where they can start trouble.  They're just looking for attention and the only way to get rid of them is to totally ignore them.
Help! How do I clean out my cache?

I have been unable to access, since last night, a website (Weightwatchers.com) and/or its forums that I go to regularly. I have friends that are able to access it so I am wondering what I might need to do to "clean things out" on my computer in order to get back to the web site.


Any way to clean up a BAD dss file??

Doctor dictated despite the fact that he had a tremendously BAD phone connection.  I can only hear a word every few sentences, the rest is loud humming and static.  I have a KOSS equalizer that didn't help at all.  Anyone know of a miracle program or something that might salvage this recording, as he doesn't want to re-dictate it?  THanks! 

Does anyone pay someone to clean their house? sm
If so how often do they clean for you and how much do you pay them?   What size home do you have? i.e. 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, living room, dining room and kitchen?
Always a dishcloth and use a clean

one every time.  Right now we are without a dishwasher.  I use a dishcloth for dishes and a dishcloth to clean countertops/table  - or will sometimes use a paper towel.  I also use bleach or an antibacterial cleaner about once a week.

Never, ever use a sponge.  If you use a scrub brush need to at least dip in bleach every day that you use it. 

I can't remember where it was, but in the last couple of months I saw a show like 60 minutes and it was talking about how dirty a kitchen is, especially in comparison to your bathroom, and it was enough to make you sick, in more ways than one. 


I need help to keep my house clean. What should I pay?
Am thinking 10.00/hr cash of course. Is that too low? My house just needs maintenance (floors, dusting, countertops).
I third the Mr. Clean Eraser. nm
