      It was done on purpose.  Originally GCHB0Y was randomly assigned to my
      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.

      -mark.
