So, why „Hape42“?

Well, it’s pretty simple actually:

My name is Peter Schneider…

Just try combining them into a good nickname for Chats, forums etc. Everything I tried was already taken, there are just too many with that name…

Then I thought of Hape (My first name is actually Hans-Peter) but that was also already taken and adding a 1 or an Xx xX around just looked too silly to me.

So 42 was the obvious answer! Everyone who knows Douglas Adams will get why, and everyone else just sees some random number.
