Mildly annoying

I'm a copy editor. They pay me to hunt down and fix misspellings and such. This makes it a minor but continuing annoyance when one of the bits of software we use has a misspelling in the error message. After the program crashes and I relaunch, it assumes (since it was written pre-OS X) that the Mac must have been rebooted, so it tells me that the computer "did not shutdown properly."

Two words. When it's a verb, it's two words. Shut. Down.
