Re: e to a million places!

Sweet, 80 digits per column.
Looks good in SynText Editor when
I cut and pasted 4000 or so digits.

Re: e to a million places!

I don't really care about the numbers, I just scroll down and think about the power of computers these days! When I first saw this, I was amazed!faint

Re: e to a million places!

A trick for those who use mnemonics or things to remember numbers:

Andrew Jackson was the 7th president, elected in 1828 to two terms.
Then tack on the 45-90-45 right triangle.

2.718281828459045

The first 15 digits are so incredibly easy to remember. You don't need to remember much.

Re: e to a million places!

Reminds me of a site I have in my bookmarks: http://antwrp.gsfc.nasa.gov/htmltest/rjn_dig.html

edit: what were you doing at totse anyway ? tongue
edit: okay - desided to try to remember some of these digits tongue My first time doing that.
2.718281828459045235360287471
is what I've got so far.
These beginning blocks are very easy. First goal is 50 digits, wish me luck! (I'm always had a horrible memory)

Re: e to a million places!

Well, that would be useful, but the human brain is always capable of processing and holding large pieces and strings of information with the use of popular mnemonics or phrases.
