Argeïphontes Recalcitrance is an odd utilty from musician/artist Akira Rabelais. Basically, if you turn it loose on a given folder hierarchy, it will re-name your files. And re-name them with eccentric obscure words. This can be a nice way to shake up the creative process if one feels to familiar with the material one is working with. Suddedenly, you are re-discovering your files for tyhe first time.
Obviously, this needs to be used with caution
