Maybe I should have clarified what I mean with "huge", obviously a few thousand is not huge. I am more thinking about millions of small files. Normally OS's don't like directories with so many files. (The OP doesn't have millions of files though.) It's nice that some OS's have better support for this nowadays but the OP didn't specify his OS/version, maybe he is using and old Unix/Windows OS? Chopping things up in subdirectories will also improve search/access times.

[Eily]: Discipulus that's a chess joke BTW right? Because bishops don't walk straight :D
[choroba]: stop making chessy jokes about bishops!
[choroba]: I mean cheesy
[LanX]: lol
[ambrus]: no, the chess bishop itself is a joke on real bi-shops
[ambrus]: or at least on the stereotype of bi-shops
[choroba]: we call chess bishops "archers"
[Eily]: choroba sorry, I had to get that off my chess
[ambrus]: chess certainly hasn't started those stereotypes, like how kings aren't that powerful but has convinced their whole country to work for them, etc. it's just poured them to a nice clean form that would easily get propagated.
