It's a number that comes up frequently on the internet, in sample code, in slides, in life. Sometimes I worry that people might have forgotten its origins.

From "Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy":

“The Answer to the Great Question… Of Life, the Universe and Everything… Is… Forty-two,’ said Deep Thought, with infinite majesty and calm.”

There. Now you've read it and not just quoted it. Mind you, the rest of "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" is well worth reading, too.

This is me killing time while I try to finish off the multiple projects I've begun in the wake of ElixirConf... More to come!

You can’t perform that action at this time.
