Organization Frustration

Following on the heels of yesterday's rant, I am sitting with my netbook and the external HD that I started dropping my gaming PDFs into/onto/unto.  First offender that I am calling out is... Goblinoid Games, publishers of my Rules of choice at this point.  I can get over the naming of the core books by letter and number code, but I feel strongly that adventures especially, should be labeled with a file name that is somewhat descriptive.  "GGLLM1" doesnt mean diddly to me as I scour my HD for an adventure for a nite's game.  It certainly doesnt come close to "Idol of the Orcs" which is the name of the module in question.

Yes, I can guess that GGLLM1 stands for Goblinoid Games Labyrinth Lord Module 1 - but trust me, that will not occur to me as I scan a file listing trying to find something suitable to run.  It's F'n frustrating.  There is no need to name the file anything other then a descriptive title.   Heck, even "Labyrinth Lord Mod 1" would be more intuitive.

See what happens when I get vacation time and make organizing my PDFs a project?  This crap is going to take weeks.  Sadly I'm back to work on Monday.  Sigh.

I'm not picking on Goblinoid Games, they just happened to be the publishers of the first code named module I was trying to organize.  I've got many more offenders.  That being said, I've got alot of material to review for LL alone.  I'm sure everyone is waiting with baited breath for the review of GGLLM1 ;)
