Digits of Pi

Another teacher at Biola forwarded me a link to the Pi Search page: “At http://www.angio.net/pi/piquery you can search for your favorite number up to 120 digits long in the decimal expansion of pi.”

I found all of my favorite numbers within the first 200 million digits (that’s as far as the search goes). For example, I found that my favorite six-digit number, 595938 occurs at position 781815 counting from the first digit after the decimal point. (The 3 is not counted). That part of the digits of pi:

…08177819078957451433 595938 39035139959232215815…

I also found my Social Security Number and my second-favorite prime number in the list (both are 9 digits long, and according to the page, there’s only a 9.5% of finding a specific 9 digits in the first 200 million digits, so there’s only 0.9% of finding two 9-digit numbers).

This web site used to be listed on “Useless Web Pages Pages”. Someone should make a version of this that has the digits of pi in other bases, not just base 10. Now that would be completely useless.
