OK, this is really odd. I was going to say "alt.geocaching is over
yonder", but ...

Is in the pacific ocean, unless the bozo who posted this is using a
different datum than mapquest does. And the number of significant digits kind
of makes you scratch your head - Even a surveyor is going to have problems
determining lat/longs at an accuracy of less than an inch. *

P.S. Does cell equipment get put on bouys for near-shore cellphone use on
ships? Given the newsgroups line, that's probably what these are
supposed to be - ridiculously precise locations of cell towers.

More interestingly, it is precisely halfway between the California coast
and the Farallon islands. The dang island is so small that it's invisible
in all but one zoom level that also includes the coordinates in question. *

It appears to be from someone who has something against Paul Vader.

But it is a bit too cryptic for me.

Not the original message I'm sure - I've never posted to any of the groups
up on the newsgroups line except for nanae, and was responding to a bizarre
message there, which had all these groups on the newsgroups line.

From the date of the message you posted up there, I assume he was 'responding'
to me calling him a bozo after I noted that one of his coordinates was in
the pacific ocean.

>But it is a bit too cryptic for me.

I have no idea what this is about, or why this Walt guy is posting lists of
locations in the SF Bay area. When Walt removed nanae from the newsgroups
line he removed me from the readership anyway, so I think I'll take the
opportunity to back away slowly, twirling a finger around one year and
making 'cuckoo' noises. *

Uh, is there anything distinctive at each of these locations?
Someones home address? Place of business?
