Hello,

Who want to see how many digits I can calculate PI to? Maybe we can set a world record (which I think is currently ~ one trillion places)!!!

Hello,

You know, I was thinking that I would pipe the output of my PI calculating program into a text file. But, in order to hold that much data, the file would be 1 terabyte!!!!!  :eek:

I wonder how much RAM I would need? This could be a great project - I would have to learn serious memory management and file compression techniques.

Doctoral Thesis, here I come!  ;D

We're really doing well on the post count. I just checked and we need less then 11,000 posts before New Years to break the 200K mark.

Mwa-ha-ha-ha-ha!

We still need an average of 400 posts per day! But given the past week, it is definitely within our capabilities.

Don't get too frantic! Quality counts.  And I'll bet, if we looked at the post counts statistically, that some days, such as weekends might have higher then average.  We still have over 3. 5 weeks to do it.  Save your strength for the last haul!
