Ask Me A Question
Name: Mike C. Subject: Life in General Question: Why is 42 the meaning of life?
Answer: I know a few reasons why 42 is the meaning of life.
Math is one answer. If you add up the numerical assignment of each letter in the alphabet then we have M: 13, A: 1, T: 20, H: 8. If we add up the total then we have 13 + 1 + 20 + 8 = 42.
Another reason the meaning of life is 42 is regarding a certain ASCII value. American Standard Code for Information Interchange is what ASCII is all about. The ASCII value of 42 is * (asterisk) which is a wildcard for anything.
We have Math and the possibility for anything.
Name: Ralph M. Subject: Virtual Private Network (VPN) Question: I work remote and connect to my company network using VPN. I was prompted to update password and had a few days to do so. I didn't update my password and now I cannot connect using VPN. Why?
Answer: If you work remote 100%, then don’t ignore the password update and do it while connected to VPN and within the time frame of expiring. Otherwise, you have two options. Contact your IT department to reset your password or physically show up at work and connect your workstation to the network to update your password.
