? I've been down with a flu, so my apologies if I'm not thinking straight,
but if you think Homesite+ is a secret, then why would it be right on the

(If you're doing training for many people, then you might be eligible for
one of the many education bundles... some of these are subsidized versions,
and I recall seeing semester-length activation in the past too. In some
cases even a 30-day trial is an easy way to handle a group.)
