It's a flame.... as in hot post -
If a post gets so many hits on it, it gets the flame.
Not sure what the magic number is though. 
I wanted to thank the person that helped me. sm
That Turtle Beach Audio Advantage is really the ticket. I can't believe I was living with such bad sound quality for so long. THANKS SO MUCH! This is really helping immensely.
Oh my..I'm afraid my original post started a flame I did not anticipate...sm
I think it just proves there are companies out there that are not worth our time and some that are. I left my email address (in my original post above)and would very much like to hear about companies that are fair, honest, have steady work, treat their employees professionally and yes...do pay a minimum of 10 cents a line. I know they exist and would appreciate input from those of you who know who they are. You can email me privately so as not to start another flaming war! Thanks for your help.
Not OP but wanted to post about rad. sm
I work for Keystrokes on two different accounts. One is the best account ever, and I literally type 22-26 reports per hour. I have been on the same account for 4 years, use Shorthand religiously, sit and type straight through 6 hours 6 days a week (my choice). About a year ago, I got a bug in my bonnet and asked to change accounts. It was right as the new residents came in, and it seemed to be the worst group ever. I moved to another account, and my counts cut in half.

So, I would recommend Keystrokes for radiology accounts but by the report and make sure that it is an account that either pays links or pays higher because it does not pay links.

I wanted to know if this was a legitimate post..sm
because she recently worked for me and I would like to know which funeral home so that I may send flowers. Such a awful thing to happen. 
Ok, I didnt post this, another JWA did. just wanted clarification.

My post was NOT NOT INSULTING. I just wanted to get some answers
YES HE OR SHE IS ON A POWER TRIP if they keep deleting my questions. Why are THEY AFRAID to answer who owns this company. I will stick around until I get a satisfactory answer. I never said I HATED THIS SITE. Where did you get that from? I am not telling YOU how to post either. So again, ONLY WANT TO KNOW WHO OWNS THIS COMPANY. SIMPLE, SIMPLE QUESTION. NOT an insult.
The problem is that much of your information you post is either
false, exaggerated, or simply sounds like a disgruntled rant.

There are far more HAPPY MLSs at Transcend than disgruntled former employees.

You were unhappy, you left, end of story.

Great post with VERY useful information. nm
Read my post more carefully, did not say not information
until the 2000s; I was not sent home until then. Am glad was able to work when I did in the hospital setting because the money was like a gold mine then, very different from now when MTers seem to be struggling to make a living. Approximately 2002 the hospital decided we could work from home and then decided we were disposable, so out of sight, out of mind also. I remember asking about going home to work first, you know that ask and ye shall receive part you posted, I did and frankly the hospital saw they could use our space and before long they instituted VR and then out we went. The salary, ask and ye shall receive, fell from highs in the 40s to not 25 a year now. Oh, but the comfort of home, donít forget that.

It seems the postal service is selling employee information including information to access the employee's health records?  The article stated that they did it because they "needed revenue."  I can't believe I saw this.

You don't give enough information for ANYONE to answer this post intelligently.
Try including more information like what makes a line, TAT, georgraphic location. Otherwise, if you're truly an IC, only you should determine what your time is worth.
Wasn't there a post on here about letting companies having you banking information
Thanks for your post. This person is....
wicked.  To suggest that I shouldn't have had kids because they go to rec camp during the summer.  They LOVE IT!  It's a huge program and very popular.  Jeez, kids of 10,11,and 12 yrs old have expanded their world just a bit from sitting next to mommy and coloring and playing by her feet.  They want to be busy and with other kids.  Oh well, I guess it takes all kinds.
Don't they post that information when they post the
job listing? 
what a lovely post....thank you, QA person!
I think this a transparent post by the person
looking to find a few new suckers.

I don't even have to go to the site to know it's a fake.

You've "earned" $60? Or, you've RECEIVED $60 in hard cash...


RIPOFFS - How many others got taken by this person. PLEASE POST HERE. no mess.
So far HappyMomMT, you are the only negative person in regards to this post. SM
I was just telling her my opinion and my experience. My kids were 11 months apart, two girls. They fought all the time over toys and attention. For anyone to say it is not hard to work an 8-hour shift with two kids at home, that is insane. And what's even more insane is to say that we dont care or love our kids and that we have no motherly instincts. Jesus. I love my kids more than life itself. EVeryone is fine and happy now that they are in day care and get to socialize and not be on their own all the time. Of course I was here to help them with their needs but the fact of the matter is, they had to be left alone for every line I transcribed. And when are transcribing 1200 lines a day, that is a lot of time. I am not a kid-hating MT. And I hardly EVER post on this board.

If I didnt have to work and had my kids home with me I would be a great stay-at-home mom as I do have mothering skills. However, to stay at home and not be able to use those mothering skills because I am tied to a computer, that is not good for the kid.

I am sure there are a lot of MTs who can work around their kids schedules. I am not one of them. Like I said I was just stating my experience to the poster. I do believe that it is best to place the kids in a place where they can be tended to while you work. I will believe that till I die. That is my opinion. Your opinion is obviously differnet but please, and I dont mean to sound mean or nasty, please dont go and accuse people of not caring or loving their children and call them kid-hating MTs. You sound very immature.
Obviously not, the person says they are new to MT - read the inital post - sm
before blowing a gasket.
WHY is this person allowed to post on the equipment board?
My 1st post was to post about person who has
The post about the resume bank has been removed. It was discovered that the person
who made the post was lying and got caught.  Administrator
"take one line from a post and use it against the person" - read your own quote
New. Wanted to put in a better card to support a game my 17yo DD wanted to play.
Great post and i agree 100%. As a former depressed person myself, ,I learned that the most depressed
people are self-centered whether they want to admit or not. I stayed in my cave and only talked about me and my problems and I was severely depressed (runs in family)
After I found God and started attending church regularly, I have completely changed and am off medications. I also give lovingly now to my husband, children, family, and friends and have recently taken over teaching a large woman's Bible study class locally and have never experienced such joy, peace, and happiness in my life.
It wasn't until I began taking my eyes off of me and started looking around at others in more desparate situations that I began to learn the true meaning of life.
Great post. I, too, think fasting is a life-changing exp. When I fasted from food for the first time (I am very overweight :) it was one of the most powerful experiences of my life. There's just something about withholding something that you truly desire or want - it's like putting out flames to a destructive fire within you and it feels GREAT!!!!
I work for the person. I know. Very excellent person, personally and business-sense.
It is an INSULT to have QA hovering over seasoned MTs who know what they are doing. She trusts her MTs and again if there are questions there is one person, a trainer, who can answer them via phone, e-mail or instant message or you can send the whole report to them if you choose.
Point was is the person willing to make up for the slack of the person who types 1 job when there is

if that is all they WANT to type.   Is the person who wants to be a supervisor willing to make up for those people?

You have crap supervisors, editors and mts in the business like you have good ones.   Sadly, the really good ones of all of them are few and far between. 

wanted to try it but wanted to make sure
No flame from me.....
I agree.  Kids need to learn to seek out the proper people on  their own, with guidance  of course.  If the parents only allows controlled hand picked social contacts, how do you learn that skill?  People who homeschool for religious  reasons are the worst for this.  They only let their kids associated with like-minded people.  Unfortunately the world isn't like that.  I believe that the way to raise well-rounded children is to give them plenty of attention and supervision  at  home, train them about morals and make your expectations clear.  Then as they grow, they venture forth a little more as they get older, slowly separating from being under the  parental wing.  I think teenagers need a parent in the home almost more than little ones,and that is why I work at home.  A good education can be had  in almost any school.   It's there for the taking.  The real world doesn't cater to you, your  needs, your desires, or  your preferences.  A full-time job isn't finished in 3 hours (like the abbreviated day many homeschoolers boast about).   It's about being there on time, sticking to it even though you  may not feel like it, and  getting along with people  you may not care for, and avoiding those who are not good  for you.   Just my 2 cents.
Please do not take this as a flame, but
talking about 65-character count lines, and I believe hospital transcription. If I am not mistaken, you have said before that you count gross lines and clinic transcription, which is a whole different ball game. I too transcribe clinic dictation and count gross lines, and would much rather do this as it is much easier to produce and make money in this environment.
No flame taken
I have often tipped my hat to these guys, was just trying to put a little humor into things today.   I took one road and they took the other.  Have done the hosptital, teaching hospital and realize the complexity of it.  But I have worked hard to get my accounts and keep them also. 
What does the really (looks like a yellow flame) mean by the postings?
A flame happens
after a post has been looked at a certain number of times. I has nothing to do with the types of responses you get to your post. It's all about the number.
No flame here...
You should file a complaint with Animal Control in your county, even if you already filed with the police. Animal control can give summons (tickets), and also can get you a court date. I forgot what kind of court it is, but it deals with animals and trashy yards (environmental). If your hands and wrists are sore, you should tell the judge you couldn't type as fast and you work on production.
You should get some sort of compensation. The leash law is in place for a reason (your attack for example), and it doesn't matter if the owner is right there on their own property with their dog. If the owner could not restrain his dog, then the leash law was broken. I know this because I live in the country and my beagle was doing his business in my yard by my garage and Animal Control happened to drive by and stopped (what luck!). The officer said that I must have my dog on a leash, even though there wasn't another house in sight, and the beagle was too old and lazy to run anywhere!

I really feel for you; this should not be allowed to happen! You could also have been bitten. You need to report it to Animal Control so it doesn't happen to someone else! Animal Control is serious about enforcing the leash law. Good Luck!
What is the FLAME?
What does it mean when there is a flame next to your post?
What does it mean when messages have a yellow flame at the beginning of a message?  At first I thought it was because there were so many added posts after the first post, but I posted a message yesterday that I got no answers to, and this morning there is a flame in front of my post.  Does anyone know what this means?  Thanks.
the littel flame
okay, so I am new at all of this. what does the little "flame", blinking yellow signal mean.
Stone/flame me too
I believe the reason this was created is because all the newbies were whining that they cannot find jobs because you need experience and they couldn't get anyone to give them a break. This will be a false sense of an MTs ability if a company hires based on it. And just my opinion.
Off topic - please do not flame...
I will be moving to a smaller house (simplifying and paying off my mortgage in the process..yay!) and will need an Aerobed for guests. For those of you who own them, are they comfortable enough for an elderly person? I have seen some really high ones and see that you can now purchase a separate frame. Any thoughts? TIA.
hardy har-har... flame on!

The flame comes from the message
being viewed over 200 times. She did not put it there. duh.
No flame wars

I don't know what is wrong with you or some of the other people on this board.  I had the mistaken impression that we were all adults here and didn't engage in flame wars. 

Moderator please note that this is what occurs every time someone doesn't like what someone says and in this case makes no sense.  They are simply trying to start a flame war.

As for you, I made no call.  I left it blank because the only thing my AS says is no patient names.  I asked my team leader a long time ago about family members names and he got the answer from the hospital.  I've never come across this before in the medical field but let me tell you something, in education you do not discuss your student with another teacher who is not part of their education or this breaks confidentiality policy.  Since HIPAA is not just policy but a law, I used the same logic that the knowledge that this other patient is in the psych ward is only the business of HIS physicians and not this woman's and that to include HIS name in HER medical record would be questionable at best.  So I did the responsible thing and left it blank with a question mark which is procedure for all of my accounts.


What on earth is a flame war?
Are you referring to the flame next to posts on here? That just means they've been viewed a certain number of times.
When you have a QA person that is picky and another QA person that is very lenient where does that
leave the MTs because some are getting a lenient reviewer and others are getting one that picks at everything. How do you reconcile that issue with the difference in QA mentality. Some people make out well and the other people could be just as good but dont. I wonder about that.
The person MTSO pays is the person who
It'll flame. I'm staying out of it.
