This is where my biggest problem lies.  I do programming for school
projects and I do some programs on my own, for testing what I'm learning
in school and for stuff I'm learning on my own.  First I had school
programs in a school directory and everything else in another directory,
but then I moved the school stuff over to my programs directory and had to
create tons of directories to keep it all separate, but when I want to
compare two programs I have to do some major hunting.  Even locate won't
work because I can't remember what names I used for the older school
programs or what project number they were in.

How do you break up this directory so it's organized but you can still
find stuff?

Only two things are necessary to keep a redhead happy.
One is to let her think she is having her own way,
and the other is to let her have it. :)
