Can't download launch pad msp430 CCS v4 (FIXED)

I got My launch pad MSP430 today (I'm going to get a Arduino but thought I'd give it try).
I went to http://processors.wiki.ti.com/index.php/MSP430_LaunchPad_(MSP-EXP430G2) to download the Code Composer Studio v4 but in order to install it I have to register and in order to register I have to give them my company name
I DON"T HAVE A COMPANY NAME I'M NOT A COMPANY >:(.
If somebody knows how to get around this that would be grate.
THANKS ;D

Invent one?

It is strange, whenever I need to register for something where registration doesn't make sense, I suddenly happen to forget my real name and address. I become a CEO of a multi-million company with > 10000 employees, and I am of course in the middle of green-lineing a huge development budget and making buying decisions. It is kind of a medical condition.

If you're feeling a particular need to be honest, you can claim to be a student at (wherever you're currently going to school.)  Manufacturers are pretty sympathetic to such a status...  (but you are at the age where it's about time to invent your first company name...  Quick, before it becomes illegal to enter false data on the Internet!)

I was re-examining the LaunchPad.  Now that it's shipping with 20pin MSP430s with 8 and 16K of flash, it's a much more credible competitor to Arduino than when it was first released (with a 14pin 2k micro.)  One of the "easy to use" aspects of Arduino is that the chip is "big enough" that the would-be user isn't immediately faced with the need to write "tiny" code.

You can just put your full name as your company name. In Australia you have to trade under your own name if you don't have a registered business name.
