Nifty chronological way to name files

I see alot of different file naming systems on different websites for images, clips and content and I thought I'd share one that I have used for a long time and find it very useful. If you name your files in this format:

YYYYMMDD

All your files line up in your folders in chronological order from oldest to newest and group together for easier maintenance.

Just a quick little tip as we start to build reports for 2005! :)
