One thing I've not seen in the book (or perhaps have not retained IF I've seen it) is the order in which the images (once renamed and metadata added) should be placed into the "buckets." 

In otherwords, if I'm making the first bucket, should the oldest files go there, or does it make any difference (since the cataloging software should be able sort through all of that)?

Yep. The bucket system is like Andy (Campbell Soup can paintings) Warhol's box system. Warhol always had a good-sized cardboard carton next to his desk. Anything he was done with (a sketch he didn't want, a magazine he had read, junk mail he didn't want to read, a used pencil or chewing gum wrapper,...)went into the carton. When a carton was full his assistant sealed it, dated and numbered it, and put it in storage. A simple, sequential system. Today you can see some of them at the Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh. This is the simplest possible way to store your originals yet still keep them accessible should you ever need to retrieve one. Get more complex and you'll be using the damn word instead of the DAM word.

More or less what I'd thought.  Assuming you can retrieve via metadata search, then why should I care where it physically resides. 

Thanks for the reply.
