Reminds me, in an oblique sort of way, of the time I tried to change my user password on our network to "Californiaraisins"

I got an error message telling me user passwords have to be "at least seven characters long".

I was installing the evaluation copy of a plugin and
reached Step X: "Start (application) and look at the
File menu. You should see two new entries... Set Up
xxxx... Save Using xxx". I go to the Start menu and
launch the application. I open the File menu and look:
no new menu items. I repeat the instructions several
times, and get the same result every time. Then I look
at the commands that are supposed to be there...
hmmm... "Save"... maybe I should open a document.

Sure enough, I do, and there they are. They were
probably there all along, just dimmed. I wrote in
suggesting a change in wording to something like "Open
a document in (application)". Still, I should probably
have my morning coffee first before tackling these jobs.
