Hello, Rhonda! I am a semi-new Case Catalyst scoist. I am located in Columbus, Ohio. However, I have Internet capabilities and I have a secure ftp site that you can upload your Catalyst files, with the audio. That system will send me an email when you upload something and I can download the file directly to my computer. I can then either email the file back to you without the audio or I can upload it back to the ftp site for you to download.
I have worked for a local court reporting firm for nine and a half years as the production manager. I print the transcripts and handle obtaining the witness' signatures. Right now, I am scoping on a part-time basis, in the evenings and on weekends. I would like to have enough clientele to be able to scope full-time by the spring. Even though I am working on a part-time basis, I am very capable of meeting your deadlines.
I would certainly love to talk to you about this opportunity. Please let me know if you need any scoping help. You can either email me at email@example.com or feel free to give me a call. My cell phone number is 614-332-3185. I have that with me all the time.
I've been talking w/Jason about buying the Gemini Grand by itself or getting the Court PKg, with the computer-attachment. I'm going to be using Bridge to RT and I bought 2 Acer 11.6" Netbooks. I was thinking of just getting the machine alone and using Bluetooth to hook up to my laptop. But this machine has no backups. I would, though, have the job file and the backup file thru Eclipse on my laptop. Is your computer-attachment working ok or do they typically have problems? Veronica Kubat came over and showed me all of her equipment and said she did have problems with hers and even ended up getting a new one. There's a $1500 difference between buying just the machine or buying the pkg. I'm going to buy the Stenocast, too, and the flash drives for LiveNote(1) and Bridge (2). I also just bought an Olympus DS-40 digital voice recorder as an audio backup.
This RT business is expensive!
Can I get your opinion, please, on the machine alone vs. the pkg.
Awesome may be an understatement. I'm really just getting around to really exploring it and taking this study/career path serious. Was too taken up with closing out my career with Philips, healing a darned serious injury, and trying to make my fingers go where I want them to go on the stenowriter (I'm still working on the last 2!) It's thanks to you for recommending it...probably wouldn't have discovered it for a while.
Well hello there:) FL in a couple days! Bet you are psyched!! I just put some new pics of our wedding up. Thought you might be interested seems how you are Miss Photographer:)
I am going to get the Cannon Rebel XSI for my husband for Christmas and some classes. Have any opinions on that camera?
I am also extremely interested in starting a little wedding consultant business. I just absolutley love doing all that stuff, and I planned every aspect of mine to a T. Plus, I don't mind doing the projects myself to save someone money. That's what I did!
I am thinking of using STPW and stacking those together to make the positives of those phrases. lol. I am going to experiment tomorrow and see what I come up with. Thanks for helping though. lol. I thought we learned phrases for that, but it was a few years ago. So I might have made that up;) lol
I think we still learned something different. lol. I use the SPW for the contractions and the TPW for the do not, etc. I am thinking maybe if I do add th e * to teh SPW, I can change it to the positive; do, would, etc. I am trying to learn Mark's theory, but I am afraid those phrases starting with Y are going to conflict with my word endings where I attach them with Y. But then again, I guess if I learn the whole theory, I shouldn't be attaching anymore, they should all be about one stroke. lol.
Oh boy. It seems like sooo much, but I am determined to do it!
lol. That sounds fantastic, Rho. I'll go pack my bags;) Your week sounds crazy next week. Do you usually do that kind of stuff every week? Good luck getting your nightmare depo done. I know how that feels sometimes, like you're just never going to make it through to the end. lol.
So are you full Tues and Thurs next week also, or may you have some time? lol
I don't think tomorrow is going to work out, Rho:( But maybe next week will be slower. I know it's the start of a holiday weekend, so I'm assuming not a lot of attorneys will be taking depos:) I will writer you on Friday and Maybe I'll have Monday off, seems how you said those are good for you!
Hey, Rho:) I have been actually watching that thread. I, for some reason, am thinking of trying the LS first. It will be a couple months anyway, so I might think about it a little more. I know I plan on buying Mark's book this week I think too. So much stuff. lol.
I emailed my # to you in a prive message:) Hopefully we will work it out this week. lol!
