## Pi Computed To 10 Trillion Digits414

An anonymous reader writes "A Japanese programmer that goes by the handle JA0HXV announced that he has computed Pi to 10 trillion digits. This breaks the previous world record of 5 trillion digits. Computation began in October of 2010 and finished yesterday after multiple hard disk problems, he said. Details in English are not fully available yet, but the Japanese page gives further details. JA0HXV has held computation records for Pi in the past."

I can calculate any digit of pi in binary off the top of my head with 50% accuracy.

It looks to me like there is a mistake in the 34,518,296,721th digit. Could you repeat and compare please?

Given that Pi never ends, could we also call it "onanonanonanonanism"?
