Let's hope it takes off. When I realized that questions like the 'spaces in file names' one were popping up in threads that had NOTHING to do with computing, let alone Linux, it just seemed like having a central place would be so much more convenient. I mean who--after say a month or six--will REMEMBER that the question about removing spaces from file names was in a 'what's going on in your neck of the woods' thread?

so let me ask the first question. I download a file (graphic) from a website that puts its name in brackets along with the name of the file.

example
[www.somesite.com]fantasy (7).jpg

what would be the best way to rename the file without having to do a full rename of each and every file? for the sake of this example lets say ten files.
What would you want the files to be renamed to?
