technical stuff 01
While looking up information on why my computer hard freeze, I learned about bugs and the Hrair limit. Because my parents are computer programmers, I have some idea of why a computer doesn't work.
I then came upon the Answer to Life, the Universe and Everything, which was given by Google.com as 42, which was made into a joke that if we calculate 6*9 by base 13, not by base 10, 6*9=42 not 54.
If we have base 13, then we have 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 A B C.
Since 6 * 9 = 9 + 9 + 9 + 9 + 9 + 9.
Calculating by base 13 lead to 9 + 9 = 15.
And 15 + 15 + 15 = 42.
The easiest way to see it is to use base 10. If 6 * 9 = 54, then count, starting with 1, all the way up to 54. You will come upon number 2. Then count how many times it took to pass the entire sequence, and you will count 4. So 42.
Another joke was that if 6=1+5 and 9=8+1, then 1+5*8+1=42 because rules of mathematics state that multiplication takes precedence over addition, so 1 + 5 * 8 + 1 = 1 + 40 + 1 = 42.
But I was getting sidetracked, so I returned to find the definition of a computer freeze, which might be due to an electrical problem.
Bah.
