Tech stuff- Need FTP help. sm
I have a client that needs to log on via FTP. She is not able to do so, and so I think it's the firewall.

Is there any way to log on via FTP without changing firewall settings? Would resetting the firewalls help or her shutting the firewall down and then restarting after she logs in help?

Even when she uses Internet Explorer to log in via FTP, she gets a message and it doesn't allow her to log in.

I will probably need some sort of software to get in and fix stuff like that. If anyone has recommendations, it would be appreciated.
I am running on Windows 98. Tech does not support it. I am doing fine.

Ideally they say DQS should run on XP.  Ideally MQ should pay me enough so I could afford to replace my computer.  Maybe when Frank MQ gets around to raising statuatory employees line count after 5-6 years service to MQ, I can afford XP.

Got that right! 70s today, windows open, clean air. Great stuff in NY! nm
I say go with the online records searches - I had some "fishy" stuff I needed to check out.
Tried it on my own via the courts, court clerks, public records, etc., and it took me days and days of weeding, and found out a smidge of info.  Went online and paid $9.95 at one of the common search sites, and found out PAYDIRT! So much info, and all turned out true, that I was amazed! Best $10 I ever spent! This was on a "relative" who was trying to pull a con on an elderly relative.  The elderly relative still fell for the con, but my conscience is free, cause I warned her up front.  Everything we feared has come to pass, but at least we tried to give warnings up front. Found out aliases, financial info as in legal charges for bad checks, property titles, and a whole bunch more! For $10 and all on one form! Then called the court clerks back and verified all info, but I had to have the info first - backwards, as usual!
try an off-site, online scan
Go to www.bitdefender.com and use their online scanning. It is very good. If you've got anything, it will get rid of it. Highly recommended.
You have to understand though this site averages only around 100 online
users at any given time whereas most companies especially nationals have thousands of employees and/or ICs.

So statistically speaking, these comments (good and bad)represent a very small amount of the national MT population. To me, it seems like the same folks over and over.

I use this site as a guide NEVER as a Bible.

I wouldn't trade being an at-home full-time MT for anything. There are just too many positives that outweigh the negatives.
Any ICs pay their taxes quarterly online at the IRS site?

I am thinking of doing it and just wondered how well it worked.  Can you also pay your state and SE taxes there too?  It really wasn't very clear online, at least to me.

Weren't you set up with a VPN or some other site to access the work? The tech people need to set
I read in the newspaper that an online betting site had to shut down...
because there were many very large bets on Danielle winning. Supposedly people were tipped off that she won.

I agree that she shouldn't win. Go Terry!
Use onelook.com to look stuff up and then pick up Dorland's, etc. off of there. Great site! nm

Bare Minerals IS available at ULTA online,Sephora online...(sm)

...and you don't have to sign up for a makeup "club," or anything. I totally agree with you that this makeup is great for all the basic purposes (coverage, lasting), but their slogan is "Makeup so healthy you can sleep in it." There is a delay in time between when you can apply your powder after moisturizer, but it is really worth it.

To go with your powder I recommend the "pump brush" offered at some of the cosmetic online stores. You fill the handle with your powder mixture (I mix two different powders, changing it up or down according to how much sun I've been getting) and the pump brush will distribute some to the bristles, tap and have at it! This is great for carrying it with you to minimize the loss into the lining of your handbag!

I cannot recommend Bare Minerals enough. I used to be a MAC convert, and have tried everything from Chanel to Maybelline--this product does not disappoint.

Are you working in DOS or Windows? In Windows, it's Kilobytes.
I think I smell either VR on the easy stuff, or offshoring of the easy stuff.
Several companies still train on site. In fact, we are piloting an on-site training sm
program, where everyone would come in to the Keystrokes office to train for 1 or 2 weeks. We have a large training room and feel that this may be a way to cover all aspects of an account, be right there to answer questions as they come up and have one-on-one contact.

It will be optional at this point and may not be more effective as remote training, but some people have expressed that they miss the training that you get when you start at a hospital.

We are trying to bridge that gap between working in-house somewhere and working at home.

It may seem out-dated in many ways, but sometimes going back to basics is a good step to take!
I have noticed sometimes I will try to get into a web site and that site will freeze up and I dont

know if I have too many screens opened up and minimized or what. I tried to open a website sent by email and froze up the email screen. Not sure what I am doing.

I subscribe to another web site and within the boards on this site they have

Would anybody be interested if adminstrators would allow us to have this type of board or even put it on the main board.  Like on this other board they tell you to go to a certain web site for a coupon for 20% off Barnes and Noble or when Target has reduced prices on seasonal things.  Anybody got ideas or bargains they would like to share to save money?   We could call it the MT Stars penny-pinchers board.

Fax in Windows XP
There is a place in XP where you can send a fax, go to Start, All Programs, Accessories, Communications, Fax, there is a section there that says "Send a Fax" and it walks you through.

Hope this helps!!
WP 5.1 or WP for Windows
if you are using windows xp..sm
up on the toolbar, there is an icon that shows the *zoom*. if you want to change the document to 100 percent, click on the icon, choose 100 percent, and save the document that way. if you want to use a template that is not at 100 percent..open the template, change the zoom to 100 percent, click to close and it will ask if you want to save changes. say yes. next time you open the template, it will be at 100 percent. hope this helps.
Do you have Windows XP?

What happens when you click on "My Documents"? Does it say that it is not accessible?

You might try creating a new folder to save your documents in. Try creating it directly on the C drive, so you bypass Documents and Settings.

Otherwise...I don't know what to suggest.  Good luck! Let us know if you find out what went wrong.

If you have Windows XP, there is....(sm)
Remote Desktop already in your system, you just have to access it. See link below. I've never used this myself, but I would imagine your new MTSO would have to give you more info, for you to log onto your server, ISP, or other. I'm not a real technie person, so can't really help further. Hopefully someone else will have more hands on experience for you.

(Personally, don't understand why the MTSO would not give you all the information you need to be able to work for them, and provide technical support, but that's just me, I guess....)

Good luck!

No, I use Windows XP.
It's really weird. It was the same expresss scribe I had last year. It worked fine. Now it doesn't work. I did uninstall it then download the newer version. So, I have been online looking for an older version. No luck yet, however.

But thanks for trying to help. I really appreciate everyone for trying to help me out with this.:)
do you do windows?
the ones on houses? and not the computer!
Windows XP sm

Dell stopped selling computers with XP on 6/30 this year.  I called them and asked them if I could get a computer with XP, and they told me no. 

I think it's a shame they're trying to make people purchase something they don't want. I'll probably go with Tiger Direct.


Is this for DOS or Windows?
Sounds like DOS version if it's on a disk. Not sure if one for Windows came on disk. If it's for Windows do you have the right version of Word to use it with? If it's for DOS do you have wp51 installed? Are you using it from the RUN function? Other than that maybe your disk might be corrupted.
Thank you but I have Windows XP

Do you know of a "fix" for this ?

Can you use the DOS system with Windows XP?nm
Anyone here about the Windows XP virus out right now?? nm
Anyone using or have used MedriteXL for Windows not DOS?
Is it MT-friendly and productive.  Does it count  headers, footers, etc., or would that be company-controlled.   Can you use ShortHand abbreviation Expander with it?
Windows upgrade
If in doubt about upgrade, please try www.worldstart.com and post a message on the message board asking your tech question and one of the techs will get back to you. They have helped me many times and are great. They sent me in the right direction for my memory upgrade and problems on my computer. They will know if it can or cannot be done. I always ask them there before I add anything on my computer. Just upgraded my memory to 512. They know about software/hardware, etc. Good luck. Try this web site, these techies know what they are doing.
MS Word for Windows 95
Does anybody know of a medical spellchecker that works with MS Word for Windows 95????  Thanks
ShortCuts for Windows........

I like Shorthand for Windows.
You can use it in MS Word almost everywhere else. It is very reasonably priced, and has a free 30-day trial.
if you are on XP, Shortcuts For Windows

Anyone considering Windows Vista?
I'm just now beginning research, anyone have any opinions yet?
PCShorthand for Windows
I use the above. It works with pretty much all windows-based programs. You can download a free 30-day trial to check it out.
windows vista
I have seen a lot about Vista not working with several programs, etc. Has anyone found a fix for this, or is it better to just stay with XP and pray it does not crash. I think I may use the "contact us" on the windows site to let them know our problem, I mean we are a major user of their product. What are our alternatives? Any opinions?
Windows Vista
I need to get a new computer, having decided I need one dedicated solely to work, without my 13-year-old's sites and fun and games. But I'm wondering how the new thing, Windows Vista, is going to affect different programs and platforms. All the job ads I see where you use your own computer specify Windows XP. And I don't really want a buggy new system. Amybody facing this?
Has anybody tried the new Windows Vista...sm

If so does it work well with the voice file/foot pedals we use for transcription. 


Windows Vista
Are there any companies that have systems compatible with Windows Vista?

This key is on all windows keyboards.
Windows Vista
Does the new Basic Windows Vista come with any type of word processing program or do you have to buy that separately? Thanks.
Windows Vista

Has anyone used Windows vista with Extext? 

Windows Update.
Your operating system needs updates. Go to Microsoft site and check for the available updates.

The new Macs can use both Windows and OS X
The new macs allow you to install both Windows and OS X. So basically you get the best of both words. They call it a dual boot. I use it and it actually seems faster on my mac then it did on my pc. I hope this helps
