In Reply to: and you put up with it to let it go that far? - really?

appears to have multiple problems.....once a man hits you, it's never the only time #1.  I have never been hit or cheated on.  However, my self-esteem is my #1 priority in my life for the past 15+ years, and I intend keeping it that way.

evidently you have no clarity about all....nm

How dumb are you? Evidently you fell from somewhere.
Evidently you can't read. We have contacted

employee problems to be public fodder.  They don't respond to questions.  They

don't return phone calls.  When they do give answers they are nonsensical, non-answers.

Go back and read.  See how many of us here are saying we have been in touch

with the mighty Frank et al.  And it is not your place to tell anybody to "file it or shut it". 

Get out of "our" business if you are not affected.

I swear I could hug you right now. Evidently my expander
left past the letter D and I was trying to replace because I have been using it for forever!!  Thank you so, so much!!!!!!!   
Evidently Admin. has the pudding.
Evidently the site is brand new
Yeah, not a ton of information yet - I searched on this forum and found interesting info when what I guess are founding members were gathering information and getting started. It appears they just got the website up in Jan 09 and I also read a post that they said it was 2 years (the group/website) in the making. I think it's worth keeping an eye on, since many have voiced dissatisfaction with AAMT/AHDI and some have voiced hope for a new MT group to form. Now we just have to see who they are and what their next step is. In the meantime, there are still others of us who want to put our heads together. :-)
She didn't. She was mocking you. Evidently you missed that. nm
Evidently someone is satisfied. They have workers and are still in business. Don't YOU
evidently they moved ur post to the classified
Wow. Evidently this company ignores the JCHO's recommendations
At my job you would GET FIRED for not adhering to the dangerous abbrevation rules and changing q.d. to daily.  I guess it depends on whether a company adheres to the joint commission on hospital policies or not.  I know when I applied to a company I transcribed mL instead of cc and was told I made a major error in my test.  I was following the AAMT guidelines and it cost me a job.  It is a problem that is no standardization in the rules.  I wish they would get together and decide on one way of doing things.
It appears that your mind is (sm)

the one that is closed, which is why nothing will ever be done.

I have done my part.

What you eventually do about your own situation is completely on your shoulders, not anyone else's.

Not exactly sure, but target appears to be MTs.
Scientology appears to be nothing more....n/m

Whoaaa...the pic with the MTs at desks appears to have been taken in
I enlarged the photo. The MTs appear Indian in total to me.
In reading your threads, it appears like they sm
belong somewhere else as you don't have a grip on what the poster is saying. So, get a grip, eh?
It appears to have been deleted. I forget - sm
which board it was on, this one or gab? Anyways, I had said to possibly use call blocking to block your sister, or to unplug your phone for 15 minutes or so during the period she calls you back. I remember someone else suggested having her number blocked but have her calls forwarded to a cell phone if you have one. I'd look into another phone line as suggested below; they are not that expensive (get it with no LD, just the basics and use it for your virtual call center if you can). You can write off the cost of your phone lines on your taxes on Sch. C, so they do help offset your taxes some. Or you could just try to do an extra 300-500 lines a month to cover the cost of the phone line. Good luck.
The Amazon one appears to be a current

edition and the CD that comes with it is an outdated spellchecker and not the dictionary on CD-ROM.  The Stedman's one is just the CD and they are always more than the book.  The have more detailed info on the CD.  I have an older version of the book and I think I've used it 2 times in 10 years.   When I update my Stedman's now I buy the CD and I might use it more if I had it on CD versus the book, though with their CDs now you can only install it twice.  They also have the book, but it is about $50.  

Check the classified board here and check half.com.  You can most likely find it cheaper at either place. 

see Rose's message above; appears to be more to this.
It appears to be happening to all of us. How do you spell -

Illinois company and it appears
when I checked they still have the account and the account is up to date. Since direct deposit is an option, I figure there are some who do not realize they didn't get paid yet, since I was told everyone on that account did not get paid. Why would they keep the account if they did not get paid by the client? Tried calling the labor board and left a message for a call back. I will have to see what I can do. Thanks for your response.
It was a graduation trip with the high school class. There were chaperones but evidently sm
she went out on her own, but for you the blame the parents and victims dosen't make sense.  Go back to your rocking chair and rock on.
It appears that each time you changed jobs, you went (sm)
down another rung on the ladder. Nurse, insurance rater, now MT. The next step is probably burger-flipper at McDonald's.
Well it appears we all speak American English...

There are thousands of different dialects of American English....from North to South or East to West.  Come on folks, we listen for a living....Please calm your little buns down...."American" is not a dialect....Vernacular is different everywhere.  When asked to "cut out the lights" my kids looked at me for an answer to which I replied "turn off the light switch".      Cat


Theodore Roosevelt on Immigrants and being an AMERICAN


"In the first place we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the man's becoming in very fact an American, and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag, and this excludes the red flag, which symbolizes all wars against liberty and civilization, just as much as it excludes any foreign flag of a nation to which we are hostile...We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language...and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people."

appears to be an Indian based company. SM
doing a search for Spectramedi and India, you will find the following link. Make your decision, but I won't work for a company who has affiliation with any overseas company or employs overseas workers. Their website shows they are based out of New York, but this India link indicates they do business in India. This is only my opinion based on my internet search.

and so it appears( x 3) the prestigious Cleveland Clinic does too.
Thanks. I purchased a three way plug last night and it appears to be working and yes for the-sm
poster above it does have a filter on it but the way it plugs in I needed the extra plug so I could still be connected to the computer for my fax to work.  Thanks again for the help. 
It appears the magic number is 500. Lots of folks job hunting, for sure.
Good one. An anonymous poster blows another anonymous poster's head off. Great win for MQ?

I guess that is a small pleasure for those of you who have lowered your expectations for the company you work for. 


Bet you're married to a fat bald guy too. 

THANK YOU to the above poster - sm
God, I thought I was the only one that could understand the simple fact that we have access to SSN numbers, insurance numbers (which a lot of times are SSN) and we are given computers and equipment that we could turn around and resell.

Apparently only one Transcriptionist in the whole US has been in trouble for identity theft. The rest of us must be honest folks. And yes, I am being sarcastic.
Thanks. I was about to tell the poster the same!

Poster must be new to this board.  For us "old timers" we remember the Terry S posts from awhile ago and how that took up most of the board.

This board is NOT just for MT, but a place for MTs to visit and ask, talk, vent, discuss, buy, sell, ask for help, look for new jobs, send a funny joke, etc.

It's a great board.

If you don't like it, then go elsewhere.  There are plenty of MT chat boards out there, but this, by far is the best.

Only MY OPINION, so I don't need losers telling me I'm stupid.  Thank you very much!

I do believe that poster. They may not
but they were in my area as well. I don't live in Illinois, though.

That's not good money. :(
LOL!! to you and other poster (sm)
The young 'uns are 18, 21, and 25 hahaha!!!

Can I still send them over?

It's just I normally don't work until after 10 p.m. or so, so they are not used to "indoor behavior" until then.

The 25yo is building a computer so he was updating me on every little thing.

The 21yo is his girlfriend (the one talking in the hall).

And the 18yo in my college daughter who just got her first B in English (all A's until now) and she had to give me all the details...

You know they do grow up, but they're still young 'uns I guess.

I just needed to eek out a few more lines before I turned into a pumpkin, so I was slightly stressed. Getting piece of crap dictators didn't help.

But thank you both!! You made my night :)
what you think that poster said
and what that poster said is different.  The poster DID say the MTSO should pay the MT the extra cpl the MTSO was getting from the client.
above poster said it all (sm)

I think you will like it there.  It's about as close to an "old time" transcription company as you'll get.

poster, eh? NOT..................

I am not a big fan of DQS - however, what this poster says
is true. It is manipulated by the account manager, the client, or whoever.

I worked on DQS for another company and it did count spaces and my line counts were correct. It does not count anything you put into the header or searches such as patient account number, etc. That is time spent not paid for, in my opinion. Don't like the spell check or Expander either.

I transcribe 300-400 lines per hour in Word-based programs and WP5.1. With DQS, I too could not get above 200 lines per hour. Very frustrating to say the least. I thought it was me getting slow or old or something, but went back to my old platform, and poof - 300-400 lines per hour again.

I don't know what it is, but something is not right with that program.

I can honestly say, I hate that program! But to each their own. Good luck whatever you decide.

she? You are so sure the poster was a she?
I did like the other poster, but did have to take off one day too! SM

I just couldn't let my original job go until I was 100% sure I would like the new one.  Actually, I ended up keeping both part time instead of one full time.  I like this better because I don't have all my eggs in one basket so to speak.  If I ever need extra work, all I have to do is ask and I NEVER run out of work.

Good luck!

i do exactly what you do and what the poster

GMTA = great minds think alike!!!  *lol* - I do both things only I bang it not in the air, rather on a desk top or some hard surface.

Gotta be real careful with keyboards and salt and coca cola....those 2 items will ruin a keyboard.

Oh, I also have and love the old IBM bigger keyboards....the ones whose letters never rub off....

Like the other poster said, you could
always come back. An opportunity like this doesn't come around too often though.

I would jump at it. With anything in life there is some risk. Without risk though, you will never go anywhere. Sometimes you have to take chances.

Good luck and keep us posted! :O)
I'm not the above poster, but
to figure out that offshoring = decreased pay if the offshore MTs work for less money.    
The above poster is right
Although, I would argue against the 512 that the company says you need. I have 384 MB of RAM on this PC and it works fine. Sometimes they need to extend my time out value when I log into a new account that takes forever to download the first time. Vista will not work.
Know what you mean. But, poster said below to go
to help to find out how to do this. I tried that and was totally confused. I accidentally got one loaded that I desperately needed, but don't know how I did it.
poster is right, we have like 85 or more...sm

there have to be at least 85 dialects in Miami now and ON THE BEACH too....not as many in Fort Lauderdale Beach as in Miami-Dade County and beach areas in Dade....where I live, it is like the United Nations...I'm always saying that and I love it - I have to have diversity and a lot of it.....Today, I'd never get along in small-town America (unless it would be Santa Fe, NM - another place with multi-languaged people, mainly native American, then Spanish from Spain, then Spanish from Mexico, and a smaller amount of anglos and some other diverse groups)

just my 3 cents...no wars please....

You should get together with the poster below.
You both sound like you could use the mutual admiration.
It is not in name box as name of poster, just to
Like poster below, I would use top because
the arm only has 1 top. ????
I second the above poster nm
may be the poster was asking you if you are a U.S. MT because
when we read your original post you said the following.

"Veryu rude, just becasue you feel like it zsnd disagree with my post????

If you like it or not:"

Spelling errors, etc and sounds a bit confused. You are talking about grammer in your post and it is kind of lost there.

The poster did not say anything about
I am just trying to understand if she is working for another company, where she physically has to be at their company every day, or just what it is she is doing. I can do the work I do from my home anywhere, any state, and my tax information will stay the same, BUT if I go to my neighboring state and do work for another company as an employee, they will require all pertinent tax info be filled out....they have to. Then, I would have no choice as to what I would rather do about taxes. Employer will turn in my information to IRS regardless. If she is just taking her laptop and going to another state but still working for the same company via her laptop, who cares! The company just wants the work done.
Wow, I can't believe poster below...these are
the 2 top schools. If you read previous posts on this board, Career Step is actually NOT a good choice. I'm thinking she must be a Career Step teacher.
