Heather, any chance I could call you? It's kind of complicated and I think we'd make headway over the phone. Email me your number and a time to call at jenlug@pacbell.net. I'm in Boulder Creek, CA - near Santa Cruz.

What's up, H-Bomb? How goes the work situation? Are you still finding protem work to be your most lucrative avenue as a new reporter? I've been interning in courts a lot with this in mind.

Also, I don't know if you heard already, but Argonaut lost all of it's state funding for tuition costs a few weeks ago, so the price shot up to 275 a month. On the upside, parking is suddenly no longer a problem! :O

Heather, unfortunately adjusting the Mira was and is a pain. Seems like it would be easy with the dials, but everything has to be done in a certain order. Attending an Eclipse webinar tonight for realtiming and the equipmnt used to do it, so I'll know whether or not the Grand is for me. I hope so!

Thanks so much for your help! Bummer about the stacking, especially since I've finetuned my Mira to the point I may have two stacks in 100 pgs. But it seems from everything I'm reading about all machines, they all stack to some degree at high speeds :(

Hi Heather, I'm looking at getting a Grand. Are you having any problems w/your computer attachment, any glitches? Also, I'm a speed writer. I've got some fast-talkin' clients and when we get up to 250, 260 I'm worried about the stacking. Have you had a lot of stacking? I've already spoken to Jason, also, at Neutrino Group and Veronica Kubat's given me a personal demo:)
Thanks for any and all input,
April

I feel the same way about "them", Heather. I've been on Eclipse since 1990 and love it. I just switched to the Light Speed writer and cannot wait to sell my Mira. Then I'll be done.

I'm too lazy to adjust my final P - Please, please take a few minutes and adjust that naughty P. Just think of all those additional edits! It's never going to go away unless you adjust it! If you ever cure the stacking, let me know!!!

I'm glad you aren't having the weird T- deal. I know what you mean about the Stentura, but I still put it in my trunk just in case!

Heather, I just spoke to Jason about my Grand stuttering on the initial T when I first start up. He said one other reporter complained about that who was on Elcipse as well, and his programmer wrote a patch for it. It's not giving me any problems, but was freaking me out. Has that ever happened to you? I told him it may be happening to all of us on Eclipse, but we don't want to bug him about every little thing.

How's it going for you these days? My Grand is doing well for me except for stacking at higher speeds, which makes me so frustrated!!!

Heather, I'm like you. I tried writing on the Stentura, and I couldn't believe how I could have ever had my hands in that position! I took my written RPR again after 25 years or so in Nov. '06. I really had to study for it with the RPR manual. If you don't have one, I really recommend you get the booklet with the practice material. That's the only reason why I passed!

Heather, Fantastic news about your skills pass!!! Did you take the test on the Grand? I'm doing better on my Grand these days, and I'd never go back now to having my hands together again. So happy for you!

Hi Heather!! So I'm doing some transcription for Golden State too. I hear you've got some loooooong 3-page transcripts too! So I was wondering what you've been doing for a cover page for these tripts. You can write me back at dawnhensoncsr@yahoo.com, if you'd like! I hope all is well with you! Your little girl is sooooo cute!!

Hi, Heather.

To respond to your concern as to the difference in time zones, I believe it wouldn’t pose much difficulty. Actually, it gives me more leverage as it enables me to deliver earlier. For example, when you send in a job to me by your evening, I receive it my morning and can actually start working on it and be done with it within 12-14 hours, if it’s small, and then send it to you immediately. As to the thing with taxes, I’m not sure how it affects your tax computation or tax reporting.

By the way, thanks for your comments. If you have overflow work, you can try my services. Or perhaps you can refer me to your friends. Hehe.

More work and more power to you!

Hi Heather,

I saw your listing looking for a proofreader. I am a proofreader. I would be interested in doing some proofreading for you. My e-mail address is danelleyoung@cs.com or danelleyoung@verizon.net. I hope to hear from you soon.

I can try to make it. I will send you the proofer info later. There is an NCCRA seminar coming up on Thursday that I will be at.

Congrats!!! I know of a great proofer if you haven't found one yet.

Heather,

You want someone with a lot more than a years' worth of experience. It's really important that a new reporter uses very seasoned scopists and proofers with exceptional references.

There's a proofer recommendation area on here, and I can't remember where. I think Marla started it, so you can check with her if you can't find it.

Good luck!

I know Chris R. on here has rave reviews. My sister-in-law used a scopist on here that put out complete crap.
