No, murphy is a yorkie because I bought him when I was living in new york city and schauzers need more room to run and exercise. Growing up, we had a yorkie, maltese, and mini schauzer. The schauzer gor cancer and died from
chemotherapy when I was in college so that's when I got my mini white one. The white one, Maggie, weighs about 18-20 pounds. The black, beckett, is about 22. We think he's mixed with a standard. Schnauzers are the "dogs with the human brain," they truly are very smart!!
Hey Kathy, that's my Murphy. He was about 3 months old in that picture and was cuter than ever at that pint but he is still pretty cute. I thought yours looked like a Schnauzer but really, standard? How much does she weigh? I have 2 mini Schnauzers that I raised in college and now "belong" to my parents. When I started court reporting school (just 4 months after I got Murphy), we moved in with my parents so he loves the Schnauzers. I have a white one that is a girl and a black one that is a boy.
I played with it at a seminar and fell in love. I have really bad wrist/arm pain and neck/shoulder pain and so I've got to try something. I'm always in knots.
I haven't written to paper on my Stentura 8000 in years. I just write realtime to my computer and have the backup on disk if I need to retran the job if my realtime freezes.
This new machine has all kinds of backup, expandable to 7, I think, so how you could ever lose a job is beyond me. I've never needed anything more than the one backup and have never looked at my paper notes since school.
It has the little mini computer on top of it and that records your audio. It comes with a tiny mike for that and a littel USB hub for other things you might need to plug in.
You can add the 3G wireless internet. He told me I just have to set it up to receive my Sprint info and it will start working just like my Spring wireless card does now to have internet access at my depos.
They will send you a writer to try out for two weeks but I doubt it comes with the computer screen up top. It's probably just the machine so you can see if you like the feel of it.
You can keep it exactly like your old machine or you can move the left keyboard to the left, the right side of the keyboard to the right. You can even twist them where your palms are facing each other!!! Whatever's comfortable for you, this machine can do it.
There's lots of people wanting to know about this machine, so I might not remember to comment back, so ask me in about a month or so after I get it what I think of it.
And it costs the same as all the other writers and I don't want the SAME kind of writer. That is not going to help my aches and pains whatsoever!
And it has an infinite number of key adjustments if you write a long, hard stroke or short, quick strokes.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY FAVORITE COURT REPORTER TO SIT OUT WITH!!! Hehehe.
Thanks again for letting me sit out with you last month. I had a blast, and you were sooooooooooooooo helpful and nice! Every court reporting student should be so lucky to have such a great mentor like you! Thank you a million times! :)
I hope you have a GREAT, GREAT BIRTDHAY!!! I hope all your wishes come true and that you have a wonderful year full of precious memories to be cherished for a lifetime! Many more happy steno-ing years ahed to you, Kathy! Hehehe. Have fun! GOD bless! :)
Nice to hear from you! I'm still so exhilarated (yes, even days after!) from sitting out with you at the very exciting courtroom you have! So interesting! I definitely learned a lot! Thanks again so much for taking me in! :)
Yes, we'll DEFINITELY keep in touch... PLEASE! :)
About the pics, I look online using Google Images and type "Thank You" or "Determination" or whatever I'm looking to find an image for. I choose what I like, right-click on the image, hit "Save As," rename the pic to something easy for me to remember the pic by (such as "Thank.You.Dog" for the below pic on your wall), and then store it in a folder. Then to upload, you click on anywhere that'll allow you to upload a pic... like here on CSRnation. On the walls here when you leave a message, you can click on the camera icon (atop the box before adding your comment) and your image will be included in the comment you post on the wall.
Sorry if I was rambling. I'm not very techy (that's my boyfriend's expertise, not mine!), but I hope that helped!
Glad you like the objections. I plan on either adding to that or creating another set for some other objection-related briefs I have. I like your SKW idea. I might have to consider doing that or something like it. I emailed Marla about the briefs also. Thanks a bunch!
