Oh, and, er, when I said "redirect" above I naturally meant "permanent redirect". Could swear I was just saying something somewhere about the recurring need to edit posts...
as the software/script seems to generate a random string then i image that the hours, minutes and seconds 141329 are also redundant
Or, in the alternative, it's the random string that's redundant. At a minimum, its length has got to be excessive. I mean, we're not talking about credit-card numbers where you have to minimize the risk of a random correct guess; all we need is unique filenames. You might conceivably want to know the upload time-- but surely it isn't possible to upload

16^8 = 2^4^8 = 2^32 = something with nine or ten zeros, right?
files within a single second? The software may be able to log activity that fast, but a million simultaneous connections (assuming a mere millisecond for the physical act of uploading)? Nuh-uh.
