N.A.M.N. to the rescue! N.A.M.N. can generate up to 256 unique serial numbers per month. Serial numbers that aren't just a random identifier, but also tells you something about the content, the media type and when it was archived.
Each time you launch the application, a new, unique serial number is generated based on your choices of media and content type, and on the current year and month, plus a counter. That way you never need to worry about duplicating a serial number, which makes it handy for indexing in a database. You can, of course, also increment the counter manually.
So what does the serial number mean?
The serial number can be broken down into five parts according to the following pattern: ? # ## # ##
|?||Media type, one letter||D||DVD|
|#||Content type, a numeral||7||Binary, photos|
|##||Year, two hexadecimal digits||0D||0x0c=13 i.e. 2013|
|#||Month, one hexadecimal digit||A||0xA=10 i.e. October|
|##||Counter, two hexadecimal digits||00||0x00=0 i.e. the first medium of the month|
