      Please explain the meaning of the numbering system.  There appear to be four groups at present.


      While I understand the “regular” ones like 3172605, it’s the others with all the zeros that might have some of us wondering or curious.

      Additionally, why does the letter “A” come at the front of “AKB 2000003?”

        The A in AKB stands, naturally, for AskWoody.
        The groupings 1, 2, 3, 4 are an effort to differentiate the topics by type.
        The 7-digit numbering alludes to the well-known MS KB numbering format.
