much, the website I cut & paste from said 10,000:-) If you need greater
accuracy here's a link to 50k http://3.141592653589793238462643383279502884197169399375105820974944592.com/index1.html">http://www.ballandclaw.com/upi/pi.50000.htmlOr 1 Millionhttp://3.141592653589793238462643383279502884197169399375105820974944592.com/index1.html
Or even 50 Million... (downloadable in 20 gzip files)http://oldweb.cecm.sfu.ca/projects/ISC/data/pi.htmlOr set your own computation limits using PiFast. Current record for a home

miKe,
You need help ... FAST!  I'll send you a hotline phone number off-list ...
By the way ... I found (yes, found) a pound of Injerto in my stash this past
weekend and roasted it ... not too shabby.  ;-)

Many folks miss the in-significance of even 3.14159- can most people measur=
e
anything to six significant figures?
About 40 years ago, my HS math teacher gave extra credit for anyone that
would try to derive pi by measuring something round.
A Brunswick bowling ball and a fancy optical comparator gave an easy 3.14-
something, I disremember. Long ago and far away at Caterpillar research
department...
I do remember the near perfection of my new bowling ball surprised Dad and
the Caterpillar folks. Dad was the assistant chief engineer at the time.
