Hello Edward,

thanks about pointing that out. Another thing learned :)

However, it does not work. It still throws that same error (and also  
quits irb).

Anyway, for me that's not a problem anymore, because I just added:
       raise ArgumentError if password.empty?
to my script. But I'm still curious why a "rescue Exception" doesn't  
work here -- if anyone knows, that'd be cool :)
