Pi=3.14~
Every wonder exactly how far they have gone with pi ?
ever wonder how long that # can really be..
From what ive heard they have gone pretty far with it but i stumbled across a URL my friend sent me that has shown a big part of how far they have gone without finding 1 bit of a repeat
i belive this goes over 2 million digits but im not 100 % sure and that is just a educated guess..
I have a text version of the # in the biggest form i have found but it was near 5.5 megs in text version so i will not be uploading it obviously
but if u are interested in seeing the # of all #'s heres a interesting link
http://3.141592653589793238462643383...20974944592.jp
im guessing people found this by typeing in the first few #'s in the string and found the URL, it is on google from what ive seen
if anyone is able 2 load the full page and let us know exactly how big that page is please let me know becuase i am curious, but not curious enough to let it load on my 56k

i was flipping around planet source code a while ago and i saw a couple VB programs that could be used to caculate pi to as many decimal places if anyone wants to check it out the links are:

I wrote a program in C++ with a modified version of the BigInt class (I coded a new one called BigFloat, based upon some of the info from BigInt). I calculated it to something like 50,000 digits for my professor to prove that it worked properly (he randomly checked digits with a list he found at some university's web site). It was actually pretty interesting to watch it go...

Could you please post the source code?) I would like to take a look at it. Thanx

There are more than a few sites who exist only to calulate PI, do a search on google, but I am not sure you would want to, they are pretty boring.

have u read that book Contact by Carl Sagan? ( The movie is awesome too but the book rocks!)
The end of the book has a cool explanation about pi...
And also: Fermat's Enigma: The Epic Quest to Solve the World's Greatest Mathematical Problem by Simon Singh has some nice math explanation about pi and other quizzes...

I agree with RA why do you want to keep the number going when youcan just write 3.14~
