At least I thought it was interesting. What would it take to beat
this record?
THE MOST DIGITS OF PI
calculated on a home PC
by Shigeru Kondo
Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU X5460 @ 3.16GHz detected
Processor speed measured at 3.16 GHz
Dual processors, each with quad cores
64 GB of memory available 2TB disk space
Maximum number of threads set to 8
Using custom training data
equals Kanada's 1999 record run
206,158,430,000 digits (192-gigs)
started 13 Apr 2008
in 77 days, 1 hour, 52 mins, 25.05 secs

This is the same as the record for computation of pi held in September
1999 suggesting that home computer power is 9 years behind super computers.
