Sonlight does attend homeschool conventions, but that's not what I'm talking about in this post.
The cursor blinks at me, oblivious to my struggle. I can't recall how I typically name these files. Are they File7-Master.mp3 or File7-master.mp3?
I close the dialog box and skim through the files I've saved in the past. Not surprisingly, I see both uppercase and lowercase examples.
Today is a lowercase day. I click "Save" and the computer writes File7-master.mp3 to my hard drive... right below File6-Master.mp3. I feel disorganized.
This is the fundamental flaw of labeling conventions: We tend to change. Thankfully, Sonlight's product labeling convention remains fairly consistent: level, subject, product number and modifier. For instance: 6R28: Core 6, Reader 28.
"Thanks nice, Luke, but why should I care about that?"
If you know the product number you're looking for from your catalog, you can quickly Order by Item Number on our website.
Also--and this is just a fun trick--you can use the Item Number to find the product on our site. Go to sonlight.com and then add the item number to the end of the URL: http://www.sonlight.com/Item+Number+Here.html.
Much like me. Especially when I discover that I really want to name a file with lowercase letters when I've been using CAPS all along.
