From: Nicholas Clark Date: 17:08 on 26 May 2004 Subject: Safari So I'm using Safari, and I want to look at this file, but it mangles it and treats it as HTML: http://axpoint.axkit.org/example.axp.txt So I decide to save to disk and look at it in my text editor So I click "Save linked file as" and I am presented with a dialogue with the suggested name "example.axp.html", with "example.axp" highlighted. I replace ".html" with ".txt" A modal dialogue appears: "You cannot save this document with the extension ".txt" at the end of the name. The required extension is ".html' and in smaller print "You can choose to use both, so that your file names ends in ".txt.html" Of course I fucking should be able to fucking save the fucking thing with whatever fucking name I fucking want. I'm the fucking user and the computer is my fucking tool, not my fucking master. And, oh, so smart computer, you know what I'm damn well going to do? Yes. Save the fucking file with the name you fucking insist on, and then go into the bloody finder, take advantage of the hateful default action for return, and rename the bloody thing to .txt. Which I did with no errors or warnings or nagging or swearing or V signs. I should be able to do this from the fucking start. Get that? Or do I have to re-program you with a fire axe? Nicholas Clark

I hate software naming that is non-descriptive. or perhaps there's some clever convention I'm simply missing? will I see ximians and bonobos on my safari?
