I was reading through modauthdigest today and found an odd comment:

    /* XXX: WHAT IS THIS CONSTANT? */  

    t.time = 42;  

I didn't understand what it mean at all. I looked in the Digest RFC, looked in the Squid Proxies implmentarion of Digest and couldn't figure it out.

I figured it out a couple hours later. 42 is the The Answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything.

The Wikipedia has some nice info about it: http://en2.wikipedia.org/wiki/TheAnswertoLife,theUniverse,and_Everything

Some Apache coders crack me up.

Also found out that Carroll is hiring a "Nicole Swan" to work as a dedicated Coder for the Carroll Website.

Her blog is over at http://www.nicoleswan.com/

Hopefully she is pretty good with PHP. It sounds like we will get todo a complete site redesign from scatch soon. Should solve many of the problems that the site currently has.
