Okay...so I'm showing a bit of ignorance. I've never
used and flavor of Unix, so I spoke from what I've
been told.

At a previous job, I helped "write" content for a new
website. The teamleader very pointedly told us to
watch the length of our filenames because they were
using Unix and it couldn't handle more than 8.3.
Obviously, he didn't know what he was talking about
(and I wonder why I was so eager to leave that company
after only 2 mos).
