42

42 is the answer to the ultimate question about life, the universe, and everything (quinky-dink? I think not!)
Credits to Douglas Adams, and his many great contibutions to the over all weirdness of geeks, Hitch Hikers Guide to the Galaxy, The Meaning of Liff, and a couple others.

*Small note, the aformentioned page (www.42.org) is in German (i think, not actually knowing it)


What do you get if you multiply 6 by 9?

See this post to the hole known as alt.fan.douglas-adams.forty-two by Stefan `Sec` Zehl

#define NINE 8+1
#define SIX 1+5

void main() {
printf("%i times %i is %i",SIX,NINE,SIX*NINE);
}

(thing) by luckystrike 42 is also "two birdies up" if you assume that 42 is a hexadecimal number, then you can break it into its respective nibbles using your fingers (assuming that you have 8 fingers and 2 thumbs...) so, taking 4 on your left hand, palm facing you, you get 0100. take 2 on your right hand palm facing you, you get 0010. hold them facing your friend or your computer, you have now been very nasty.

(thing) by FordPrefect Incidentally, the number 42 does not occur anywhere in the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy series, except in page numbers. The Answer is always written as "forty-two". And everyone involved heard the Answer from the Informational Illusion about Deep Thought. So, maybe the number 42 isn't the answer at all, but something to do with the syllables of "forty-two".Throw in the fact that everyone watching the Illusion must have been using a Babel Fish, and things get even more confusing.

    <fondue> accipiter : I, being Linux newbie, was trying to use the little X-based util (XNetConf? something like that)... It doesn't seem to be finding the card...
    <anotherone> yay, I win!
    <Lometa> :P~~~~~ anotherone NO fair!
    <Sylvar> (elvis) Thankyouverruhmuch . (/elvis)
    <Accipiter> fondue: I'd highly recommend recompiling the kernel. Amble into /usr/src/linux and type make menuconfig. Under "Network Devices" You'll find NE2K support. I'd also recommend removing support for hardware you don't have.

    what is this?
