I once produced a manual with a lot of screen-dumps showing fields that had
to have people's names inserted, and could show relationships among those
people. If this manual is still in use (it was years ago) it shows Cowley,
George: married to Ross, Kate: two children Bodie and Raymond: address
Asquad Road, London. Not exactly an Easter Egg by the classic definition,
but it gave me a certain amount of harmless fun <g> at least, I think it was
harmless, and I know it was fun.

The writers all stand around a cauldron chanting and occasionally tossing in
a small easter egg.
