Dreamcard under simple user

  I can't tell you the exact terms used in the setup of the simple
user.  I don't have OS X at home, so I can't look at it.  However, I
know he created a user, then went to the tab for user rights.  He
selected the option on the far right, then selected the check box to
allow access to only certain programs.  He then granted access to
Revolution by checking it.  However, upon logging in as the user,
Revolution never showed up.
  My understanding of the way Rev licensing works told me that it
shouldn't matter if I was running in demo mode or full mode.  However,
I was not in the mood to try and argue that with the IT guy at the
time.  We didn't try setting the folder to be read-write.  I'll see if
we can try that next week.
