#3241: Hint for Amazon S3 New Folder

 Cyberduck's feature tag line made me aware of Amazon S3.

 It was easy to set up an account at Amazon to give it a try. Without too
 much reading. I know, RTF. But. I had done enough serious things that day
 and read my scores of man pages.

 The only thing where I ran into a road block in the whole process was when
 I tried to create a folder (bucket) on AS3. The rest was a breeze.

 And if ducky prides itself of making things easy, hey, why not add a very
 small hint somewhere to 1) failed new folder (it says "/" not accepted or
 so) and 2) failed transfer (when trying to load a folder into root) and
 that hint would just say "folder name may not be S3-wide unique." And that
 would have been all that I needed to get my stuff up there and not think
 for some minutes, Cyberduck may be buggy, and in fact already looking for
 a different tool. It was by chance that I decided to look it up in
 Cyberduck's Help, after browsing Amazon for answers for a bit, querying
 the S3 dev docs.

 AND if you want to make life really easy, make the login name prompt "AWS
 ID", instead of "login" or "name" or what it was. Sure, it should be
 obvious. But then again, one has just signed in to AWS using an email
 address. Which at least I tried first and wondered.

 Again, just trying to help. Great little tool & thanks for the pointer to
