^{1}The number keys at the top of the keyboard do not work for this. If you have a laptop computer, you’ll need to enable the embedded numeric kdeypad before trying this.

^{2}I find 3.1415926 is adequate significant digits for all my purposes. Or better yet, just use the “pi” button on the calculator.

Here’s a helpful tip for Pi Day: On a Windows computer, you can enter the symbol for π by holding down the ALT key, typing 227 using the numeric keypad,^{1} and then releasing the ALT key.

The mildly geeky amongst us will remember this by noting 22/7 is a common approximation for pi. The more geeky will avoid using this approximation and instead remember enough significant digits^{2} of pi.

Happy Pi Day!

I found Dinosaur Comics’ Pi Day comic to be less violent than the Abstruse Goose Pi Day comic I posted a couple of years ago.

I’m looking forward to July 22 (and sorry I “missed” February 71).

How many digits of pi do *you* know?

I still don’t know pi beyond 3.1415926, but thanks to Randy Yaw, Mr. Pi Day himself, I know that I can enter the pi character on my computer using ATL-227 (notice the numbers are the same as 22/7, the approximation for pi).

Have a slice of pi!

NOTICE: In no way should this post be interpreted to condone or encourage the senseless beating of those who can recite *way too many* digits of pi. It is just the failed humor (okay, the reposting of failed humor) by one who can’t remember more digits of pi than 3.1415926.

Sorry, Randy…
