Thanks for the birthday wishes, and encouragement, Kathy. This is one of the biggest challenges I've faced in my life, but I LOVE it!! It's actually addictive. Everyone is so positive and always willing to help - I know I can do this, I know I can.

Ugh! Of course it came while I was at my depo. It came at 2:00 and if my depo hadn't of been moved to 1:00, I would have been here.
Then we tried to go pick it up at UPS between 7:30 and 8:00 and my driver still wasn't there at 8:15 so they told me I had to come back another day and get it.
I'm soooooooo mad. I've got 3 days of depos starting today and I don't get to play with my new machine!

Hi Kathy! I'm unfamiliar with the Smartwriter. I'll Google it & do some research. I wanted to say that I think you are awesome for allowing students into your courtroom to get a feel for what its like & to see you in action. I wonder if any court reporters here in the Ft Worth/Dallas areas do something similar. I saw the "CLR" behind your name...I know what CSR & RPR stands for but not CLR?

Oh, I don't know about that. I know Baron was what was going to work if I got the LightSpeed, but I hated the feel of it and didn't want it. I guess I'll try all of them until one works!
UPS called and said they needed a clarification on my street address yesterday but no machine yet! It better get here today. Of course my 10:30 turned into a 1:00 o'clock job, so they'll probably try to deliver it while I'm not home. I WILL cry if that happens!

Hi, Kathy, read your note on the paperless in Orange County. Is there a contact name/number you could provide? -Sue Holthaus

Hi, Kathy: It is so nice hearing from you. Thank you. I see you are an official in Orange County -- congratulations. I am semi retired. I represent ProCat and a company called StenoCast. I also teach some online classes for the College of Court Reporting in Hobart, Indiana. I am still living here in Southern California. I am a widow. My mom who I cared for while working at South Coast passed away in 2000. I worked for Stenograph for 18 years -- 8 years as a trainer and 10 years as a sales person. That terminated in May, 1997. My kids are out here. My son lives in San Juan Capistrano and my daughter lives across the street here in Rancho Santa Margarita. She is a depo reporter. I have two glorious grandchildren -- a boy 5 and a baby girl, 2. I just finished their Halloween costumes. He will be Batman Beyond (you know how many Batman costumes there are????) and she will be a Princess/Butterfly. I am going to his soccer game shortly this morning. I am a member here and on Facebook. I am so glad you saw me here. Let me know how you are doing. I would love to catch up.

Well, I didn't hear from him and I didn't ask him again the status of it. Hopefully it shipped and I'll get it next week. Things are kind of slow right now so I'd like to have time to play with it and not be rushed when I do get it.
Have you heard anyone say anything about the PC that sits on top, how reliable it is, how easy it is to load the software and get everything going, how easy/hard it is to adjust the keys to get it to your liking?
I've had a Stentura since '95 and never once have I adjusted the keys. I just figured some days/words I could write and others I couldn't write a thing!

How funny! Yeah I've come across a few people who actually know what a court reporter is & they had dollar signs in their eyes when I told them about going to court reporting school. The income potential is just one of the aspects I love. I also like the career options, the flexibility, the respect. On a more basic level I love typing, I love words, & I'm an information/current events junkie!

Wow, thanks Kathy!! So much encouragement!! Thats what I really need now is the support. I feel like no one in my circle can even understand my enthusiasm for this profession. My mom is very supportive of me furthering my education though but when I mention court reporting to my coworkers, friends, neighbors, customers that come into the store, they're like 'huh?' They don't know much about court reporting/captioning so I guess I can understand the blank stares (LOL)! One of my closest friends I met at CR school, she had to drop for similar reasons (job loss). She's considering doing online classes as well. I am sending her the link for this website so she will get the same encouragement I've received. Thank you SO much Kathy!! Its nice to have a new friend in the CSR Nation!! :-)

I can't remember when I ordered mine. I think I'm going on week four and I sent an Email to Jason last week telling him I was getting antsy, and he said that it should be shipped this week!
I got the bright & shiny red color. I think he said it's the color that Lexus puts on their red cars rigth now - whatever that is!

Just wanted you to know I did finally order the Revolution Grand writer. It should ship this next week of the 19th. I'm so excited. Remind me to let you know what I think about it. I just happened to see your post on my page again and I think I'd written to you to say that I hadn't ordered it yet.
Email me if you want: christy@legalsolutionscourtreporting.com

Hi Again, Kathy,

I attended the CCRA convention in Indian Wells/Palm Springs and first heard about CSRNation and signed up that night.
Regarding furloughs, I was able to take three-day weekends for about three months for our furlough because I worked in the one court in the building that had to remain open for detentions. (Also my seniority helped.) But now that it's considered a "court holiday," I have to be off on the third Wednesday, same as everyone else. They are not so sticky about our hours as in your building. Sorry about your situation. That's a bummer, really.

Hi Kathy, I have been in delinquency since 1986--a long time. Of course, I feel very "at home" there. I've worked with the same judge and clerk 23 years. I prefer this low-volume court. I only do 2-3 transcripts a month and am very happy about that. I have a life! Thanks for writing.

Yes, He had a disease called Vitiligo his skin was basically losing its color (my grand mother suffers from it and she is white)

He tried to hide it with lots of make up but there are many pictures of him where the disease is visible.

Check out this video.. if you look closely you will see spots on his face, all these pictures were from live events where his make up would basically wear off.
Of course, most people still believe he wanted to be white.

Hello Kathy,
I moved the Birthdays to the left side and only to show on the homepage.. however, i have put it back on the right side as you were not the only one to not find it.
I wont mess with it anymore.. hehe.
Here is Mikes picture, notice how his disease started affecting his hand?
I saw his doctor and designer on larry king talking about how he requested gloves to hide it.. thats how he started wearing one glove.. because he really only needed one to hide his effected hand (2 years later it started covering his whole body)

On the upper left of the page, there is a search feature. It took me a while to find it but now I use it constantly when in need of s brief. I write the word Im searching for and then choose to search within forum theory bc that is the brief area.
