Sometimes mindless tasks like that are very Zen for me, when I actually get around to them, and if I'm not in a rush.

Maybe you are becoming a Zen Master. 🙏

Oliver, what have you been doing with yourself lately? Nose in the books? Installing electronics?

Haven't seen you post much lately.

The famous Answer to the Great question. The answer to this is very simple. It was a joke. It had to be a number, an ordinary, smallish number, and I chose that one. Binary representations, base 13, Tibetan monks are all complete nonsense. I sat at my desk, stared into the garden and thought '42 will do'. I typed it out. End of story.

How many roads must a man walk down ?

My wife drives the kids and just everyone else mad with that. If they ask "mom, can I ask you something?" She would immediately say 42 and walk away.

43. Old enough to know the answer, too young to understand the question.

Sorry Dave, perhaps you are too young as well to know the right answer which is 42.
