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

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....
