Opi, I tried to break the LJ Connect last night. Left my computer at the office running while it tried to link Brad - > Princess3884. I left it running because it had been cycling for 45 minutes trying to find a connection. In the end, it went through 9746 users. 26 pages worth in Word. brad -> opiummmm -> sincerity -> xdeadgirlx -> darkcreep -> reiaku -> princess3884 (6 hops). I. am. impressed.
However, it should be noted that I got her name through the random function, so god only knows how much worse it could have been.
