RantMy new pet peeve - final Pin

I'm organising some documents and I've realised I have a new pet peeve: putting "Final" in a document name to indicate that it's the final version.

In itself this isn't awful. What's awful is:

document.docx
document - final.docx
document - final - DG-comments.docx
document - FINAL.docx

So which one's the final one?

This is why documents need source control...

[Edit: Just found:" Copy of Copy of document FINAL.docx". We have a winner!]
cheers
Chris Maunder
