Should the product prove defective in any respect, the user will assume the entire cost of any service and repair and will assume full liability for any indirect, special, incidental or consequential damages arising out of the use of or inability to use the product, including, without limitation, damages for loss of goodwill, work stoppage, computer failure or malfunction, or any and all other commercial damages or losses, even if advised of the possibility thereof, and regardless of the legal or equitable theory (contract, tort or otherwise) upon which the claim is based.
Some of the programmers and computer interfaces and circuitry/schematics information found on this site and relating pages show direct interface to the computer external ports.
Since high voltages (>5v) may be present on the circuits it is very important to check you have wired the circuit correctly otherwise you may damage the interface port on your computer which may be on the motherboard.
I strongly advise you to use interface ports on plug in cards which can be replaced in the event of permanent damage.
