If you could bring somebody back with a wild card, who would it be?  I'd bring back Chris.

I remember carbons, mag card etc sm
We really had it hard back then. As for low quality MTs, I blame the MTSO who wants to hire someone cheap and let the Editor finish the work. What do they care as long as long as the client gets the perfect copy.
Remember mag card machines? Ewwww!!! nm
Oddly enough, if I don't use my bank card as a credit card in the billing cycle, I get charged fo
Debit card. They've got the credit card logo on them, so they
can be used anywhere a credit card can be used.
I used to send a card and gift card to my direct supervisor, but that's it. sm
She was the only one who knew me as more than an employee number, and the only one I had any respect for.
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.
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 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.
Has anyone disconnected the internal sound card and replace with another sound card?

I am having problems with my sound on one of my computers.  Several different ExText program have been on it so I don't think it is the program and the sound is just now as clear as on my other computer.  Has anyone switched (disconnected the internal sound care and replaced) to a new sound card?  Did it make a difference. 

Everyone on this board is so knowledgeable, I really appreciate you.  You have helped me many times. 

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.
Wild guess, but might get you closer

1.  of any murmurs.

2.  funduscopic exam

3.  Eyegrounds??

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.
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
Wild guess-borrow a wireless?? Go to an open wirless and work from the car if you have to?
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.
Ours is in the regular food store with the brown, wild, and short grain rices, etc. nm
I'd ask the local authorities to tell the MTSO to stop sending THEM on a wild goose chase! NM
No credit card is a good credit card.
Just kidding. I'd suggest not using credit cards to pay debts. It'll only dig you in deeper. Look into a signature loan or putting a lien against a vehicle or house. Lower interest rate, pay off sooner.
Riversongs and angelrays are the best...but they are free.
2,000 debit card
When your boss gives you your paycheck, do they ask what are you going to do with that money?  Didnt think so.  Same thing for the people of the gulf coast.  They lost their jobs, their homes.  The money they will be given will be in lieu of a paycheck till they can find another job and home.  Its a paycheck from the govt.
Ethernet card
If your connection to the internet is through a cable connection, then you have an Ethernet card. If it is dial up, you may not have one. Look at the back of your PC, and if you have a plug for a cable connection (it is slightly bigger than a phone plug), then you have an ethernet card. Hope this helps. You can also go into MY Computer and check there too.
find a new card....
or, as long as your payments have been on time, call them and let them know you will move your business, and most of the time, they will lower it. Check your FICO score...if it's good, you can call the shots if they want your business. All have that little clause now that says even if you are even 1 day late on ANY other bills, i.e, utilities, dept store, anything, they can charge up to 36% interest on your remaining paymnents. Read the very small print.
Nothing but a card in the mail...sm
Do ya think it would have broke the company to have slipped a little something into that card? McDonald's $5.00 gift certificate; anything to show a little appreciation.

I've been thinking about it because there's not a lot of suits to pay; 1 owner. Now that I think about it some more, I'm thinking the owner might be Jewish, and not celebrate Christmas. But then why even send the card? And why not call it "appreciation during the holidays" instead of a Christmas gift? I duuno. The supervisors actually are MTs; I would have thought they would have brought it up during their weekly huddle. "what are we going to do for the MTs for the holidays?"

I thought about it some more and maybe only being with the company for 2-1/2 months might have something to do with not getting even a token. Oh well.
YES. We had an IBM selectric with mag card
and we thought it was great! HAHAHAHA
wireless card
thanks for the info. When I call today, I will mention what you said. Maybe I will just go to one of the local Super stores and see if they can set me up with a inout deal, if not i really am going to move if it does not work-eeks
Credit card? I'm not sure either.
does anyone have a prescription card that
isn't through their insurance company? like rxdrugcard, pharamacistrxcard, etc.  i was considering getting one to cover the meds that insurance doesn't cover or pays very little on.  any info is greatly appreciated
Debit card use
I know the credit card companies charge the place of business a fee or percentage when you use your credit card but does anyone know if it costs them every time you use a debit card, does the business pay a fee?   Our apartment complex just offered the option of automatic checking account deduction because they said it costs them less than credit/debit.
debit card
Usually my purchases show up right away, unless its a holiday weekend and I use the debit card like a credit card instead; then its usually the next business day before those purchases show up. However, if I use it like a regular debit card, holiday or not the purchases show right away.
And if you got a $10 card you'd gripe, too. It's all you know
Anyone use a PC card for their work

I use a wireless card from Sprint and I am not that close to a tower.  I checked with Verizon and their coverage does not seem to be as broad as Spint.  I have no problems with downloading work, but do have  a bit of a time lag when uploading work.

I would definitely suggest checking though with your IT department if you work for a national. I occasionally work for another service, and I when I download reports for them, I have to rely on dial up.

Hope this helps



I use a Verizon card
when traveling. I have the Nationwide package, $60 a month unlimited. In heavily populated areas, it is almost as quick as my DSL at home, but even in low population areas it is still better than dial-up. I've traveled from coast to coast (mostly along I-80) and only lost signal in the usual remote places (certain stretches of Wyoming or in heavy tree coverage). You might want to buy a card from whoever has the best cell signals in your area.
Rx drug card
I have one that's only $4.95 a month, and it's fabulous!! When I first applied for it online, I had 3 prescriptions waiting for me that were close to $60, but I paid less than $20 for them because the card was active within an hour after I ordered it!!
If you have a sound card..(sm)

you should have excellent quality.  If the sound card is within your computer, you should hook the ear phones directly up to the computer.  If not, you can install an external sound card and plug your ear phones into that.  I have the external and have absolutely wonderful sound quality.  On my lap tap I have an internal sound card and, again, have wonderful sound quality.  I have speakers, but don't use them.  If I unplug my ear phones, the speakers work, but I honestly can't say the last time I did that.  I always use my ear phones.

My cat just stepped on my keyboard...Now I have two of them sitting right in front of me.  Lovely, I guess they want my attention.

My daughter made it to the state tournament for softball All-Stars and we are headed up to the high country in the cool 80s.  We will be out of this 115 degree weather for a week.  Yippeee!  That is something I love about Arizona.  You just have a couple-hour drive and you are up in the cool mountain air.

Hope everyone has a great Sunday! 

calling card
I used mine when I was out of town, and my minutes started as soon as I was connected to the dictation system. I diconnected in between reports when I proofread. It was cumbersome to do that, but saved some of my minutes.
Verizon air card
More info please.  My husband and I are planning to do a lot of traveling and have been questioning the same things.  I know we can leach off a signal if we are close enough to a wireless place such as a hotel, but what if we are up in the mountains or on a beach in the middle of nowhere?  
sound card
Thanks so much - great ideas!
Did anyone ever have a video card go bad and what does it cause when this happens. nm
wireless card
Well there are a LOT of factors - you may be a ways down the road from the nearest cell tower, which is one of the reasons that you only get one bar on your cell phone. I mentioned the "new wireless card" as a POSSIBLE alternative to those MTs who live in a rural area and cannot get a DSL or cable connection or satellite is not a viable option and are also utilizing a desktop computer. Until recently, the wireless cards were only feasible if you had a laptop computer, so I was just informing people that this might be another option. Sorry you have such bad cell phone service -- this is not an option for everyone but as I mentioned a POSSIBLE option with possible being the keyword
air card usage
Great that Sprint offers that.  I do know on my account with Verizon there is unlimited usage, unlimited area.  So I guess as well it goes to show that different companies offer different packages and most likely for different areas, depending on competition.  Hope you find one that suits you, but make sure that you get the name, ID# , etc. of every person you talk to.  Makes it a lot easier if you have to go back for whatever reason to them.  Also, Verizon offers an antenna that you can hook to a window with suction cups, etc., so be sure to ask whoever you talk to if they offer any accessories at the time of sign up and if they can throw those in for free.
