But today it is not about that.
In the middle of the working day a colleague appeared in the office with a certain bundle in his hands. From his agitated mind, it became clear that he had brought something new and interesting. In the convolution was not very presentable box of white cardboard. However, there was a surprise inside us.
The book is the first 10 000 000 characters after the comma of the number π (100 lines per page / 100 characters per line).
- line numbering;
- good quality paper and printing;
- the publisher took care of such a pleasant little thing as a bookmark.
At the same time, there are several drawbacks:
- the book with great difficulty got out of the box;
- The storyline is not completely clear, apparently there will be a continuation.
Let me remind you that at the moment 5 trillion decimal places are calculated. This means that in order to see all the characters on paper, you would have to print another 500,000 volumes of the same size.
PS The book is published in a single copy and will be presented as a gift. I hope that my post will not spoil the surprise to those who will become its owner.
