100,000 digits of pi

This is a discussion on 100,000 digits of pi within the A Brief History of Cprogramming.com forums, part of the Community Boards category; yeah, but when figuring it out it will change numbers before it. So really it is useless to memorize that ...

    or for Eulers number

    e = 2 + 1/2! + 1/3! + ....

    and you are right darkness about the series for PI, which is based off of the series for tan^-1 (x), specifically tan^-1 ( 1)
    there used to be something here, but not anymore

    Hmmm I thought I saw a different series for pi which involved 3 + a series of fractions.

    The real question is: Is Thantos's head configured for wireless access? I mean, if he's got to be plugged in to access the data, I'm not so sure how useful that is.
    The word rap as it applies to music is the result of a peculiar phonological rule which has stripped the word of its initial voiceless velar stop.

    You don't really want to see how my head is configured. Last person to do that went insane.

    Hmm... I imagine that it makes it hard to install peripherals, then...

    I find blind monks that have taken a vow of silence. You'd be surprised how affective they really are.

    e = 2.718281828459045 | 2.7 Andrew Jackson^2 (18281828) Special Right (459045).

    Heh.

    Hmm... I knew about the triangle bit, but Andrew Jackson? My history must be a bit lacking.
    Think you could spare some of those monks, Thantos? All mine are just deaf.

    22/7 doesn't even get an answer close to Pi.

    3.1428571 as opposed to the actual 3.1415926?

    22/7 is too inaccurate for most people.

    Is it bad that I see faces in the numbers?

    EDIT:
    Is that better or worse considering I see faces everywhere?

    You hallucinate after 3 straight days of no sleeeeeep......
