Another way to fit the datestamp into the filename is store it as hex. Next year will be 2010, so you need at least 2 year digits. That makes this time maximum for the rest of the century :

2099/12/31 , 23:59:59 => 991231235959 => E6C9FC5777 Hex => E6C9FC5.777

That's a 7.3 sized filename.

Ha ha, you can actually go for 999 years and still fit in 8.3 format :

2999/12/31 , 23:59:59 => 9991231235959 => 91643C9E777 Hex => 91643C9E.777
The beginning of the file could have the desired filename for easy post-process translation :

r29991231.235959.csv
