    This turned into an incipient train wreck. Completely at odds with the spirit of the thoughtful and measured guy-maybe-being-raped thread.

    I am glad the OP after sifting all the possibilities...

    All-in-all this seems to be a very thoughtful thread. Nobody ridiculing either of the people directly involved or the OP for her concern in a comparatively uncommon scenario. Despite varying takes,...

    Thanks. One thing I keep bumping into is favorable commentary about DD.

    I read Robert Heinlein's Podkayne of Mars as a teenager and at one point the plot hinged on some great software that...

    Healthcare POA. A financial POA would also be a good plan.

    It can get tricky when an SO doesn't understand the financial stuff and has nobody she can turn to who does.
  7. Speech-to-text transcription software/methods

    I have a long clearly spoken .mp3 file that I'd like to convert to a transcript. It's a pain to play bits of it and type it out a couple sentences at a time.

    There are methods reported on the...

    There is an inherent problem with testing for 'banned substances' carried out at the technological 'detection limit' level rather than with a cut-off built into the rules, i.e., some level...

    I appreciate various PM's from those unwilling to post into the buzz-saw.

    The good news is that the world will little note nor long remember what the clear experts in Constitutional or...

    Sorry. Fifteen minutes is more than I can rightly expect from anyone in this predigested sound-byte age.

    You can always hold off on saying what you feel or think, but once it's been said there's no un-saying it.

    I can't imagine why AN felt it appropriate to launch into a rant. NZ Eventing is in a...

    Given the wide range of sentiment on this thread and the fact this is a jury trial where a unanimous verdict must be reached, it's safe to conclude that if the guy is convicted of anything, it won't...

    The compressions, phonetic abbreviations and pidgin-speak in text messaging are appropriate for that application. I have no issue with those.
