You might want to look up the Bailey-Borwein-Plouffe Pi algorithm, if you're not already using it. It can get base-16 digits, far to the right of the decimal point, without computing the ones in between. I haven't figured out how that helps us much with base-10 digits, but... check it out.

Could someone calculate the number Pi to 67,108,864 (2^26) decimal places for me in Version 4 and post here or email me the last 20 digits or so. I would do it but I only have Version 3 and it would take way to long.. I made the calculation in another program and would like to verify its results. Thanks so much...
