Prelude

Welcome to a new blog! I thought I'd start this one off with a small introduction to what the blog is about and where the name came from and then launch it from there.

So what's the deal with this blog about everything and nothing? Well, the idea initially came from a friend and former colleague of mine who often discusses different problems he encounters while developing. He told me jokingly that I should gather all questions I got and then publish a book with the discussions and answers. That triggered something within me and after some thinking this blog was created in my mind.

This will not be one of the this-is-what-I-did-today blogs that I hate so much. Neither will it be a blog about a certain subject. You might say it's a kind of mix between those two, where the subject is decided based on things that come up in everyday discussions or questions asked that I think worthy of mentioning. This means that some articles might be about programming, while others might be discussions about philosofical questions. It might also mean that some posts will give an exact answer while other posts will just have some reasoning and then leave you, as a reader, to decide what your thruth will be.

42 is the answer to the Ultimate Question of Life, the Universe, and Everything in The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams, and therefore I thought it fitting for this number to be included in the title of the blog. I will never be able to uncover the entire truth about everything, so this blog will be a vague reflection of the number 42, which explains the name Reflection 42.

Finally, I'd just like to add that I have no way of knowing where this blog will take off to. It might become a rather one-sided blog or it might become too diverse. In the end it's all about having fun, and if you get bored you can just leave :)
