With today being Tau Day (tau = 2pi = 6.2831853...), it got me
wondering about floor(tau*10^603) and its factors.

Notice that the next digit after the -000- in pi is five. This
means that the 601st through 603rd digits in tau are -001-, not
-000- (otherwise floor(tau*10^603) would be 2*floor(pi*10^603)
and so the factorization of floor(tau*10^603) would be no more
interesting than that of floor(pi*10^603)).

Trial division of floor(tau*10^603) reveals no small factors
(and I think my calculations go up to at least 10^6, possibly
even 10^7 or so). It would be interesting if this number turned
out to be prime...
