Hi, Rebecca!  Do you have anything to add to the Dropbox post here?

No pressure!  I just know you are up on the latest everything!  Hope it's going great for you!

Hope you're having a wonderful birthday today with lots of treats! I've been off the forums for a while - so glad I popped on yesterday and found out about your birthday so I can wish you a great one!

I have not done a single RT job yet with my RED. I did practice with it on an all day depo a few months ago, and it worked perfectly. Of course it was transmitting to Bridge on my own Acer Aspire One, but it did refresh. This RT stuff is still on my list of things to do, but I sure got bogged down with my regular clients' depos.

I will be doing three more days in a big case on the 29th, 4th and 5th as I was requested - yay! - to come back and report some more by the attorney. Those were extremely difficult microbiologist depos that nearly put me over the edge. The next three should be much easier.

Sounds like you have some great jobs coming up soon. Those public hearings ... I just don't know if I can force myself to do another one. I've done two in the last 31 years!

Don't forget to take a nice trip to Marble Falls to get a massage - among other things - by my ex-sister-in-law, Trish Van Halla! I just spoke to her last night. She told me she's been getting up at six and walking four miles just about every morning. I haven't moved in six weeks at least! I am getting another massage tomorrow, and I sure need it. How is your yoga coming along??? I bet great. If your answer is different, let me know when you get a chance!

I do feel kind of bad about not clearing my schedule so I can focus on RT for extra money! But we've got really loyal clients - some over 25 years - and it's hard to send other reporters - or just let them go. April and John don't want to do the RT, so it's all on me. Yet who knows - I may have nothing to do at all in November!

I have been going crazy with depos to get out. Not just mine, but from other reporters who help us keep our clients happy. Our = me and my sister and brother. I need a break bad, but it's going to have to wait! Are you just as busy as ever???

Hey, thanks, about the babies comment. I think they're pretty cute myself! They look like their daddy!!

Thanks for the suggestion. I'm just trying to get an idea of how to even charge for it, i.e. by the page or hours spent editing the transcript. Thanks again! LBJ

IN hindsight, I probably would maybe make the questions macros by writing them the night before and then write realtime and insert the appropriate questions. I thought at the time I could ask the questions and write them at the same time but after about the third question, I just read them. So when I got home I just wrote the questions on my machine and inserted them. :/

I did a dep like that years ago. I had to read the questions to the witness so I could not write them on my machine.

five laptops with three or four different viewer products going at the same time. That will make for a good post, eh?

Yes, I can't wait to read that one!

Here's a pic of you after all that hard work you're doing:

outputting to LiveNote Stream, Bridge, and LiveNote - I am so impressed!!!

For some reason, my brain really wants to fritz when I hear any other way to connect except through Bridge and StenoCast. I do have cables, though, and really need to understand all my options so I will be prepared no matter who I encounter with whatever system.

I just put a small depo in its priority mail envelope. So that's one down! I have 65 more pages to proof in a divorce depo, but it ain't happening tonight!

Man, Rebecca, you're getting a workout today! Thanks for all the great RT info!

I'm still not accomplishing what I had intended regarding RT, but I'm getting there. I do need to hook up my old Dell with StenoCast RED this week. That's a main goal of mine.

Hope you're enjoying your weekend in between posts!

Good morning to youuuuuuuuu! I just wanted to tell you how proud I am of you, Rebecca. Do you even realize how much you've grown in the last year?! I hope the character-building times are over for a while and you can just kick back and reap the benefits of your hard work and strong spirit. I really admire all that you've come through with grace and skill, and I'll be your biggest cheerleader when the successes come rolling in one after another! WAY TO GO, SISTA!!!!!!!

Ahhhh, thanks so much Rebecca....It is so encouraging that you get over the frustration factor! ;0) Off to practicing!

Hi Rebecca...I saw your comment on speed building, and I wanted to ask your opinion about it. If you do super high speeds, do you find it discouraging? Is there a way around that? I just find when I do those speeds, my self esteem goes out the But I really want to be a RMR, so any extra advice would be great!

Oh, for heaven's sake, you're already on here! I just sent you a note to join because I just heard about it. I'm late to the party! Cute pic.

I got hired today - Fantastic! That CRR behind your name really helped, I know it!

looking for realtime writers to cover jobs in other states. - Sure, I'm interested! Did I give you my email?

This keyboard separates completely or can be tethered in the back and splayed out. It can tent or not. I have it tenting slightly. I'm loving it so far!!! It's by far the easiest thing to type on, but it isn't silent. It does have a wire with a usb. Plug & play.

I love those shows like Clean House and Clean Sweep and How Clean is Your House? I'm always organizing closets and going through everybody's stuff - if they'll let me. I kind of thought if this reporting thing doesn't work out I may get into something like that. "Haven't used it in 10 years? Out!!!"

I've NEVER done realtime for anyone yet! That's why I am getting my stuff together finally. I keep saying "finally." There's a reason why I use the word so much.

I think you'll be turning the work away soon, you'll be so swamped. Doesn't that sound nice?

Yes, start a body issues thread. My problem is now that I'm home, I'm swamped with stuff too and my head is frayed. I know part of the reason is I have to get out a few jobs - you know I have to do all my production! I've got a divorce depo tomorrow and that big video depo is coming up on Thursday. I need to figure out which job dix is the good one as it's the same case I did two weeks ago. Man, I'm typing this and loving this keyboard. It's the Kinesis Freestyle with the V3 tenting deal. Trina ordered hers today!

I did two miles yesterday, but nothing today. Maybe I can do one mile??? I'm not promising.

It's so great to hear about someone who is passing these tests and has a successful job interview. I was listening to the news as I drove home today, and I shouldn't have!!!
