A few more things I'd add, from a fellow curmudgeon:

* always use lower case

* never, ever, use a period in a directory or filename

* best bet is to only allow a-z, 0-9, and underscore in directories and filenames

* don't use the project name in directories or filenames (project names change, and future projects will appreciate not having to rename everything)

* establish sensible naming conventions at the start of a project, and stick with them

* keep in mind the X360 only allows filenames up to 42 characters
