Aaah, I forgot about that. I had my mind going NO NO NO when I thought of using it. Tried it, looked damned ugly anyway, it looked better without it.

What about the "#" character? That's plain ASCII, but I wonder if AmigaDOS will have problems with that, too.

I've decided against the bullet character, as I've gone to big lengths to remove any characters the Amiga might find offensive, and to add the bullet this late would be counter-productive.

Can I use the "bullet" character in the names of dragged files?

I mean the character recreated with "•" on webpages, looks like a nice little bullet point, ASCII I think is U+2022 resulting in "•".

I renamed an Amiga archive just now with the character and it...

Is it fiddly to process the AVI files with? Or can I just run ffmpeg through the command line with the video file with PCM and it will spit out a smaller video file with AAC, just like that?
