So if I only work on this separate from my employer's equipment,
facilities and time, you believe I am ok, and I can sign the
copyright waiver as myself.  I don't believe my employer has
jurisdiction over what I do when I am not working for them.
  o I own my own equipment,
  o I pay for my own telecommunication costs, 
  o I own and manage my own domain and local area network (local to the
    5 computers below my desk).
  o I manage my own time away from my employer's facility.  In fact,
    my wife manages my time, but perhaps that's not relevant to this
