Pi day is coming up soon. So I thought this would be a good link. Want to find how many digits into pi your birthday is, phone number, social security number? Just pop open this webpage and hit search.

Search for your team number :D our team, team 589 was found at position 10 counting from the first digit after the decimal point. :D Beat that. team 1415 is lucky though.

"The string 931 was found at position 440 counting from the first digit after the decimal point."

That seems like a long way in. Anyone else have a team number that is first encountered further from the initial decimal point than position 440?

I just had the great idea to write a script that would check each number until it found the Golden Number, that is, the number n that is the nth digit of pi. Then I realized that it would be 1, and that I am stupid.

1293 was at position 1299.
I wonder if any team besides team 1 is the same number in as their team number.
Your team is really close to it.

The string 175 was found at position 1,152 counting from the first digit after the decimal point.

I also searched for Buzz's previous team number (I think), 51:
The string 51 was found at position 48 counting from the first digit after the decimal point.

Self-locating Strings in Pi
(Thanks to Jeff Roulston for the impetus behind this bit of Pi trivia).

Pi contains a few self-locating strings, but not many. Defining self-locating depends how you count the "position". If you treat the first digit after the decimal point as digit "1" (which the pi searcher does), then you get the following numbers which can self-locate themselves in the first 50M digits of pi:

1, 16470, 44899

If, on the other hand, you act like a computer geek and use zero based indexing, then you get these numbers:

6, 27, 13598, 43611, 24643510

So unless you start with 0, (or count team 1) no self-locating strings that'll match team numbers yet.

Team 698's results:

"The string 698 was found at position 1,553 counting from the first digit after the decimal point. The 3. is not counted."

Interesting...

HAPPY PI DAY!!!
