Mark has a point - but I think you can do two things, still - know your
audience - I expect silly stuff from silly software and would feel
cheated if I didn't get it.
I have a "family" of software examples that are close enough to my name
(if there should ever be a reason I would need to prove anything -
probably not in my job, though) that I use EVERYWHERE. And it is
timesaving to always draw from the family - I don't waste time thinking
up new data. It is also helpful for screen series where follow through may
not be important, but looks smoother.
