Welcome to the forty-second episode of Self Help for Robots: Life, The Universe, and Everything

What else could be the title to the forty-second episode of Self Help for Robots besides Life, The Universe, and Everything?

I really did want to write a comedic episode to honor the particular number that has so much meaning, outside of its intrinsic value. But, I received some unexpected help towards completing my patent application in the form of research that seems to be begging for my results. Also, I had a totally expected visitor join me in the studio to say hello! That's nice.

But, time to get to work!
