Bonnie Granat reported: <<A kind soul wrote me this: "Tryout versions that quit working after a specified period of time are called "try and die".">>

This is a textbook example of why developers shouldn't be allowed to name things. <g> I can only imagine the howls of outrage from people who try these samples and refuse to buy the application as a result.
