Hm, good point. Probably something like the edit distance, but with the preference to keep the prefix and suffix to make the ids readable. So one simple algorithm would optimize the sum of edit distances under the constraint that the ids have to be unique.

[marto]: it literally doesn't work. Also, via their citrix interface theres no way to open attachments, or upload an attachment for sending. The company policy is that you email you work account from a personal one, and forward it on from there :/
[Corion]: marto: Ouch :/ And having that as a (written) policy strikes me as inane...
[Corion]: So maybe you can use that momentum in the household instead, or use it for taxes or other chores ;)
