Default Yaesu 8900 - anyone else have one?

I'm starting to program the quad-band but have some questions on how you may have used your memory settings (hyper-memory channels, home, etc).

I have the SW and I'm trying methodically go through the setup so as to capture a common-sense/easy way to manage all those bands and frequencies.

In the 80 the 145.310 repeater is up at memory 204 or something, and the 145.145 down at 100 or so.. in the 100 I think .145 is #2 and .310 is #4. I never use most of the stuff in between.. just my
