Great minds think alike. I got the idea from Rael at O'Reilly who mentioned that O was for O'Reilly.

<p>Both Rael and I are glad to have unusual names that come up on the first page at Google. But a single letter, that's status.

I think the W is for George W. Bush.
In my search result this letter was highlighted.
But don't worry, I don't want to start

Sorry, but as any Hitchhiker should know that isn't the question -- it's the answer to the ultimate question of Life, the Universe and Everything. The fact that the question had been lost was the reason why Earth was created. By the mice, if I remember correctly.
