Untitled Document Syndrome

this post is pretty on the money - but it goes further. how many times have you been forced to name a project before you can start? too many. littlebigplanet, the multi-million-selling-product, still has the project name ‘ps3test1’ - yes, it really can trace its roots back to the first code we ever wrote on ps3. at the time I named that, I had *no* idea that it would grow into the final thing. oh, and the executable filename? pc.exe (windows) and pc.self (ps3). confusing!

on the other hand, when I start projects and choose a cool sounding name, oh I dunno, like “RoboEngine”, you can pretty much guaruntee that it will fail. it seems that the less well considered the filename, the more successful the content. at least for me…
