Oh yeah!? Well...

I just had one that went through 3828 users, loading only 120 new ones. Of course, ratio-wise, that is fairly close to your results... It was fun to watch it scroll by 4000 usernames though. ;-] So anyway... Yeah. Major cachage going on...

The 6 Limit -- Or Is It?

This thing is amazing. I need to send the author a note of thanks. I've always wondered what kind of cool "analysis" you could do with all the data on LiveJournal. Turns out, I'm "related" to a girl at my high school through you, Brad, and to another guy at school through visions. Very weird.

Which brings me to my question: what's with "6" being the limit? I think I have you and evan on my friends list, and since you guys have so many people on your lists it short circuits the path, but I still haven't seen anyone find a chain over 6 people, even to random people. Is there a reason for this? It's very, very interesting.

(I hope I didn't ramble too much there. Running on no sleep ;)

try connecting yourself to some of the people who are on your friends of list but not your friends list. People you have never heard of. (Like me- I'm four away) Most of those will be over three, or if you put them in the wrong order... just one hop :)
