IBMers do it all the time. One time, one whose surname is Ditto went 
away, and we were still discussing it when she returned a week or so later.

Partly, this occureed because there's a rather famous tape copying 
program that's been around since the days of DOS (this is the real DOS, 
written for IBM mainframes, and nothing at all like pcdos) before 
peecee, back in the 60s) of the same name.
