PENCIL42 provides the answer
to your questions

* In The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, the great supercomputer Deep Thought is asked what is the answer to ‘the ultimate question of Life, the Universe, and Everything.’ Deep Thought’s reply: ‘42’. Anticlimactic – or is it? Author Douglas Adams was a true computer geek with an extensive knowledge of programming language and coding. In programming, the general translation of ‘whatever you want it to be’, is an asterisk. In ASCI code, ‘42’ signifies an asterisk. So, when Deep Thought was asked the true meaning of life and it replied ‘42’, it actually meant ‘anything you want it to be’. Genius, right? ‘Pencil’ refers to the creativity, expertise and craftmanship necessary to design and deliver the right solution for each client.

Human and good-natured
