Nothing against either Borwein, they are brilliant guys.

I remember reading about BBP type formulas. Has that anything to do with what you are saying?

You did not read about the billion decimal places of pi?

No. What was it?

By the way, I am getting

for the first 41 decimal digits.

Surely you have seen that idiotic example the Borweins came up with?
