Posted by John Carl Villanueva on Wed, Feb 18, 2015 @ 03:28 AM


Overview

Some of the most common download-related questions people ask at our help desk are probably those that have to do with filenames that have dates on them. I encountered another one yesterday, so I thought it would be a good idea to write a blog post about the subject and build on it as I encounter different solutions along the way. Who knows? Some of you folks out there might find it useful. Better yet, you might be able to contribute your own expressions so that we can all benefit from them. Sounds like a plan? Let's get this ball rolling.
