Bad name for segment

I process segments every hour. Technically, soon that will be "as they arrive".
So at the moment 24 segments per day is a possibility.

I don't care about the extension anymore as I rename them per definition to a
valid value. Too many people made errors in them anyway.

That was "years ago", not "some time".

Yes, if there are modifications it would make sense.


So, since you mentioned "I don't care about the extension anymore", then
the sender puts current day number into the file extesion.
What's wrong?

(It's not a problem to fix the nodelist name to ".345", but then why did
you write "I don't care about the extension"?Wink
