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.

Subject: [mg36735] [mg36723] Could someone verify a long Pi calculation in Version
4 for me?

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...
