Wow lets stop playing 1M and start going for 2.7 Trillion.

PARIS (AFP) – A French software engineer said on Friday he was claiming a world record for calculating Pi, the constant that has fascinated mathematicians for millennia.

Fabrice Bellard told AFP he used an inexpensive desktop computer -- and not a supercomputer used in past records -- to calculate Pi to nearly 2.7 trillion decimal places.

Nope. The record is a bit longer than 29 hours. Try 131 days. Bet you can shave a few days off of that time.

Bellard took 131 days, comprising 103 for the computation in binary digits, 13 days for verification, 12 days to convert the binary digits to a base of 10 and three final days to check the conversion.

What if one day we calculate pi to enough decimal places and discover that it is a finite (albeit extremely large) sequence?

You would get a Nobel prize in math. Oh wait they don't have one. That is another story.

At least you would be really famous.

My bad, I was looking at the old record for 2.577 billion

Regardless, I'm still waiting on your attempt

highly unlikely considering it is an irational number.

If it is discovered that pi has a finite sequence, then it wouldn't be an irrational number.

Blasphemy!!!

I think that'd turn the world upside down.. or something.. We'd have to get crackin to check all of Einstein's calculations again!! But I think we'd almost be well enough just leaving it as infinite.. Things are working fine with it the way we see it now..
