I took a quick look at the source, and I have 3 suggestions:

1. I think it might work more reliably if rather than considering all interests with less than 20 people, you considered the N interests with the least people. I'm not sure if this would increase or decrease the runtime. It would be replacing a factor of n*20 with N*m, where n is the person's number of interests with less than 20 people, N is a number of your choosing, and m is the average number of people in the N least popular interests.

2. Don't limit the results to the highest 20. Printing out more is just linear time.

3. Sort by score/(total number of interested people). This unfortunately, would be slow, because you would need to check the number of people interested in each interest you might want to show.

I like the idea though. :)

I don't think this is working for my username :(.

Looks like the only sufficiently unusual interest on your interest list is koryu bujutsu, so the results are based on the two other people listing that as an interest (snaplock and zorprime1985 if you're interested)

So it is working correctly, but I appreciate that the results probably aren't that interesting or accurate for you :/

Thanks
This is a great meme. And it did lead me to an author who I had never heard of before but would probably like. Thanks! :)

Fantastic meme! The runtime was great, probably around one minute.

It even somehow picked up my affliction- I mean, facination with Gackt. O.o And apparently I need to like penguins. ^.^

Nifty meme and all. But the code it generates is missing an '>' on this input tag:

input type="text" name="ceiling" size="4" value="1000"

So when you post it it gives 'irreprable mark-up errors' and people who know little about HTML will be unable to fix it.

Thought you might like to know about that bug.

*laughs* It came up with 20 terms from two fandoms, and I am already interested in all of these (just didn't have the spave to list them... stupid 150 interests limitation). Hehe ^_^

There's a bug in link generation when the interest has double quotes; see this.

Re: This is kind of strange
I think it's mostly due to your having 'ill will' as an interest.

But yeah, kind of a surprising list to get. Hope it didn't freak you out too much!

A few of these are applicable but most far surpass my geekiness level. I'm guessing they're probably all the interests of some super geeky dude that I happen to share one measly little interest with, given the low ratings. Still, amusing. :)

Could well be.

Thanks for stopping by - it's always nice to get an update on my creations, and glad they're still amusing people somewhere out there :)
