Kate, Thor & all interested,

My little liability spreadsheet is written in "Twin" a $99 low overhead 123
clone. It still resides on an "AT clone" . I'll run it and provide a copy of
the output and explanation of the input. It's really a simple arithmetic
exercise with some engineering judgement and "Bidness" horse sense thrown in
based on some articles on liability and E&O coverage I read in the early '80's!

Its at another office so wuill be a day or so.

BTW, I'd run from the client who wants an "anti-screwup" letter. Implicit in
her request is the fact that she's not sure she trusts You!!! I want my
clients to know that they want me to do their work not because I'm cheap but
because they trust my judgement and their's in coming to me in the first place!!

Yours Truly'
