new School Daze puzzle cache, but when I saw the waypoint ID, I moved
School Daze (as yet unfinished, should be posted within a couple weeks)
over to a new waypoint ID and re-used B0Y for the ...and puppydog tails
cache. Kinda like back when I was employed as a unix computer geek, I
had a home phone number of 548-UNIX. "Did you do that on purpose?" was
always the question. The answer was 'yes,' but originally I was
randomly assigned a 468-UNIX number, and when I moved to a new
apartment i asked if they had the same last 4 digits available in my
new exchange and they did. Looked great on a resume... Not sure what
I'd get now, 796-MUGS?
Ham radio operators for some time have been able to request "vanity
callsigns" instead of the randomly generated ones from the FCC. You
can get your initials or whatever you like, as long as it fits the
pattern and is available. I think there may be an extra charge too.
Something like this could be a great 'preferred member' feature of
GC.com. I wonder if it's been proposed yet? I'll go look.
