Happy Pi Day!

Today is Pi Day (March 14, 3/14). Now, true geeks were celebrating at 1:59 this morning. But us less than true geeks can celebrate anytime today. My family and I will have a Pi Day dinner this evening. And, of course, we'll have pie for dinner (probably a deep dish chicken pie) and pie for dessert. Also, while you're celebrating don't forget to raise a glass and wish Albert Einstein happy birthday. I've always thought that is was a fitting coincidence that Albert was born on Pi Day. How cool is that? Oh, and just for fun, here is Pi calculated to 1 million digits. And here is a site where you can search for your birthday (or any other date for that matter) within the digits of Pi.
