Re all the abort, retry, fail messages that have been furiously flowing
past my tired eyes, I thought the following appropriate.

Attached to a recent demo version of a software package, the following
note was attached:

"as mentioned, it's got a time bomb in it that explodes after 60 days."

Nothing like an endearing message to generate that warm, fuzzy feeling at
the end of a hard day. I'll be hovering over my PC at the expiration of
the 60-day period with fire extinguisher and first-aid kit in hand. If
I'm not back, please remember to call out the Red Cross.
