    Hi one and all,

    One of the deep, dark mysteries of this forum is the "points". I supposedly have 43 of the durn' things yet have no idea what they are for, how I got them or even who gave them to me... Can I convert them to cash? Equipment? A Big Mac? How does all of this work? How do I earn MORE POINTS??? :)

    I believe the answer to this might hold the key to the meaning of the universe!

    I just realized you have one more point than the answer to the Ultimate Question.

    I'm sorry, but that answer is 42, not 43.

    Did you know how they came up with "42"? If you add two dice together, it equals "42" and a metaphor for "Life is a craps shoot". Dice however, are different than points... so the question seems a mystery, even still.

    Thanks for pointing out that there must be some point to a point.

    I have no idea. Can't say I pay too much attention to it/them.
