in reply to naming work files

Whenever I specify the name format for a work file, I usually go for the lowest common denominator, in this case the Windoze file naming 8.3 format. This ensures that if the working dirs ever get read as a mapped share, or the file gets transfered to a windoze machine there will be less renaming confusion.

Anyway, no drug, not even alcohol, causes the fundamental ills of society. If we're looking for the source of our troubles, we shouldn't test people for drugs, we should test them for stupidity, ignorance, greed and love of power.
