What a wonderful number. I realize now I should have posted this on 10-10-10 being that it was the binary representation of 42, but you’ll have to settle for it showing up a bit late. After all, James got it way back in November of 2007. It’s his own tribute to the wonderful Douglas Adams and is “a pixel perfect trace” that he pulled off the brick wall in the photo below.

    Hi Ed,
    Could you send me an image of this “pixel perfect trace” of 42 which I can use to get stenciled at a Tattoo Parlor?
    It's a homage to Douglas Adams and finishing my First Marathon (42km)

      I still have the original image, and I could hook you up if you’re still interested.
