Ah, the beginning of the fractional part of the constant pi. . .

So refreshing to see something mathematical here. :)

Hmm... that person could buy an additional subdomain called "3" - wouldn't that be fun? :D

By the way: How bored must a man be to find such a website? :p

think of his business card, actually it could be a she

My former roommate had close to 3000 digits of π memorized. One of my coworkers right now will recite a couple hundred on demand as well.

you should have tried it:

Is that one actually longer than the previously established longest domain name?

Well, waddayaknow: it actually is. By one character! (Not a very convincing victory...)

You're right, I should have... how stupid of me! :)

It might not be longer but I think it's certainly at least as hard to keep in mind as the first 63 numbers of pi. :p

i had an argument about pi and fictitious numbers with someone the other day.

he was basically trying to tell me that since pi is not a real number, a circle doesnt exist....

i thought my head would explode.

Wow. That's worse than the discussion at the Classic QBasic.com Forums where we were trying to convert to base pi (it doesn't work). :D

Also, somebody with a reasonable head on shoulders pointed out in that discussion that a circle using measurements in base pi would look like a square.

nice to know one million of digits of the PI :P

No it wouldn't, that's just silly. A circle is simply the union of all vectors in R^2 such that ||x||=r (where the norm is defined as ||(x,y)||^2=x^2+y^2). Completely independent of any base representation.

Now, if you consider a different norm on R^2, such as ||(x,y)||=max(x,y), then the statement ||x||=r will look like a square (if overlayed on the standard coordinate axis).

As for using irrational and transcendental bases, it isn't unheard of, and apparently using the golden mean as a base generates some interesting properties (there is a nice Wikipedia article on it).
