I'd rename the cell to rccc.org

That's much easier to type, and no problems adding it into the
identities manager.

Subject: [OpenAFS] Cell name size limit in Network Identity Manager

I have a cell with a rather long cell name,
rockcreekchristiancenter.org.  It was not my decision to go with that
name.  I am having trouble adding it to identities in the Network
Identity Manager, it does not allow me to type the final g in the cell
name.  If I make that cell the default cell for the client, it will be
automatically filled in and I can just click add, but for other
computers, I must edit the registry to add the g.  What's even more
frustrating is that it is a font size limit, not a character limit.
rockcreekchristiancentei.org fits and it the same number of characters,
but an r was replaced with an i.
