The Super Basic Batch File Renamer

I had a buddy with a problem. He had hundreds and hundreds of audio samples ripped from assorted Akai and Emu disks from years gone by. The files weren't usable in modern computer software until he changed the file extension so I wrote a quick app for him that would auto-increment and rename files in batches (he had the samples organized already by sample type... snare, hi-hat, kick, etc). I figured someone else may get some use out of this so here you go.

Warning: This can do serious damage to your system if you point it to the wrong folder and just start renaming things like a mad man, so be sure you know what you're doing!
