[thelist] converting from phpBB to IP.Board-uploaded file names

one casualty in my conversion from phpBB to IP.Board is uploaded files.
phpBB stored them as files with no extension, and names like


which, I think, but don't know, is served as this file name


but perhaps these two don't actually have anything to do with each other
and can simply serve as examples.

the first number clearly looks like hex, but I have no clue how to
convert it into a filename that means something to IP.Board.

any ideas?
