There are a lot of challenges on this site regarding pi, but none that challenge you to calculate as many digits of pi as possible.
As you all may know, pi in its decimal form goes on for infinity, so calculating it in its entirety is near to impossible. However, I challenge you to write a program in your language of choice that can calculate as many digits of pi as possible, and include an explanation with your code. The winner will be decided by popularity contest.
The only restriction is that your program cannot connect to the internet. The point is not to have your program search the internet for the most digits of pi.
So in summary, the goal is to write a program that computes as many digits of pi as possible (in decimal, so 3.14159....). Your program cannot simply connect to the internet and lookup digits, it needs to calculate it.
Note here that the goal here is to calculate as many digits as possible, but that is not the winning criteria. The winner will be based on popularity (number of upvotes). Remember, we're here to learn just as much as to have fun.
Winner will be decided on July 16 at 10 AM eastern time.
And please, don't be this guy. Let's have fun.
