With Bangle.js we've really started to use the Storage library, and I can't help thinking that the 8 character filename limit is making things needlessly fiddly.
Currently each Storage file has a 16 byte header, of which 8 bytes are filename.
What does everyone think about increasing the header size to 32 bytes, and moving to 24 byte filenames?
We could then ditch the annoying '-/=/+/etc' in front of filenames on Bangle.js and switch to using normal file extensions.
That would really nice 👍🏻
...net real-name length is then about 20..21 bytes... that helps for sure helps with standard file naming.
Don't worry about formatting, just type in the text and we'll take care of making sense of it. We will auto-convert links, and if you put asterisks around words we will make them bold.
