its may be lot longer but really, whats the point??

if you have pi to 30 billion places? you can not possibly comprehend the tiny difference between that and *only* 25 billion deciaml places! unless your trying to calculate the size of the universe whats the point exactly?! and what in the end...? you might be a few miles out in millions of light years?!

sorry that sounds like a rant its not really meant to be! lol and yes it is a bit sarcastic...

If you contact the makers, you can apply to have the program which will do Pi to the world record, which is 4.2 billion places Long enough?
