This option should be "Computing the question to the universe on my new 3GHz dual-core system."
Actually, the question was eventually (preventually?) found:
What is 6 x 9?

Actually that's not the real question (if you knew the question and the answer at same time, the universe would disappear and be replaced by something else :-)

I don't know if I'll be "Watching the clock" or "Clocking the Watch"... (sorry, couldn't resist that)

I think you are on to something here, if you think the 69 like a yin-yang sign.
However, perl doesn't think so, try: perl -e 'print 6 x 9'
Must be that missing 12....

Personally, I think that the answer was given in an dyslexic way, and should have been 24. But if it still is 42, then the factors are 2*3*7, which on an upside-down TI82 would spell all letters... however, in which order should they be?

What if the question was in a different base? Obviously at least base 10, but perhaps higher. Hmmm....

 [Lady_Aleena]: Your Mother, how would that work? I'm having a hard time understanding the pod. [Your Mother]: \$dir->chidren, grep {} \$file->slurp… &c &c. :P [Your Mother]: Stick with what you know. Or post a SOPW and if it's not complicated I guarantee someone will answer; me if it's straightforward and no one else gets it better first. [Lady_Aleena]: Um, how does grep do multiline? print "\$file:\$_" if grep { /get_(array|hash| data)\(.+\)/ } \$_; only returns the same 18 lines the command line grep does.
