in thread How do you plan on spending your leap second?

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....
