For the discussion of math. Duh.

### Base for Pi

I have developed an algorythm for pi and identified the base... I need to know if this is a new finding... and would like to discuss this...

It's almost certainly not new, but you have to give us more information before anyone can say for sure.
In the future, there will be a global network of billions of adding machines.... One of the primary uses of this network will be to transport moving pictures of lesbian sex by pretending they are made out of numbers.

There are a lot of known algorithms for pi. If you've discovered a new one that's cool. Also unlikely. But even if you only rediscovered on your own something already known, that's still cool.

What do you mean by base? You can make pi terminate in base pi, if that's what you mean. But pi's still pi and it's still irrational and transcendental.

Nobody can tell if you have a new finding if you don't tell us what it is. Nobody's going to steal your discovery.

I totally call dibs on stealing their discovery!

Curses, foiled again!

Just you wait, Dason. Next time the sweet, sweet algorithms will be mine!

nomnomnomnom MOAR ALGORITHMZ. That sentence alone seems way to ungrammatical to be part of this forum, hence this sentence.
