Let's NOT just end up asking about Moya eh? For that we can ressurect the 'Moya Trivia' :wink:

Well, technically it's yes and no :wink: That was a nasty question, so I'll certainly accept your answer - the back of my mind is telling me there was a 'Mathilda' in the Middle Ages or before, but technically you're right :wink: Well done

OK...

According to popular folklore, why are there no snakes in Ireland?

why the keys on a keyboard are organised as "QWERTYUIOP..."?

Because with the alphabetic order of letters on the keyboard of a typemachine, the bars of letters that lay close to each other got entangled and the typer messed up the document he/she was writing (hehe wikipedia knows it all :mrgreen:). Am I right? ^ ^

Should I give the answer now...?
