Today is Pi Day: 3.14

The best I can do is 3.14159265

Have you had your piece of pie today? Have some at 15:9:2 Hours in the afternoon.

How about a 'Raspberry Pi'...
...yum yum !

Might be able to calculate to even more decimal places than Herb managed...
...He's only got Einsteins 40s' vacuum-tube computer to work with.

Cheers

Right on, Si

When I try to make it work too hard, the flat leather belts start to slip.

At least I don't have to hand crank it, like the last one.

All the wheels with gerbils running inside make a nice background hum.

To insanity--and beyond----
