Well, I'm sorry too, but unless I'm a bonehead, Kanada
at U. of Tokyo _did_ establish a new world record (and
still holds it), for calculating the first N digits of pi with the largest
value of N to date. This is different from calculating the Mth digit (and a
few in its vicinity), which is what your
project does. (Not to mention you do it in binary,
not decimal, which is not a trivial difference when you're
calculating isolated digits, since you can't convert from
one base to the other.)

Right?
