Blast... a quickGoogle (http://home.ccil.org/~gvg/dl021203.htm) suggests you MAY be right... but my story is much cooler....

I had heard it was a tribute to Alan Turing who killed himself with a poisoned apple......

But never mind..... :oops:

we had quite an entertaing challenge on here a while ago, based on six degrees of separation/Kevin Bacon....

A memorable one being Colin Powell and the Arctic Tiger or something... I believe I got it in three.... :cheesy:
