Good evening,

I work for a large medical facility which has recently expanded great
individual software liability responsibilities on per diem, contract, or
even hourly workers. My job is a veritable plethora of medical and
technical writing jobs. My most recent has been a seven page web project
for Oncology. I was aware that our IS Department uses HomeSite for their
web pages. I asked if I could have, get, or download a HomeSite software
program to help IS have more complete and readily uploadable projects. I
just received an e-mail from the "help desk" that I had to sign a
"liability" waiver in order to use this program outside the parameters of
IS. I work for the research department. The contract reads that if I have
difficulties with the program, I'd be responsible for repairs because my
"area" isn't supported. Are there any significant problems with HomeSite? I
thought I'd just purchase a program for my home office and say to heck with
the rest and do the web projects here. But I am stubborn on parts of this
liability issue. Any suggestions?

Thanking you in advance,
