JPod and Pi

After a good, long run, we have decided to close our forums in an effort to refocus attention to other sections of the site. Fortunately for you all, we're living in a time where discussion of a favorite topic now has a lot of homes. So we encourage you all to bring your ravenous love for discussion to Chuck's official Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Instagram. And, as always, you can still post comments on all News updates. Thank you for your loyalty and passion over the years. These changes will happen June 1.

I just finished reading JPod by Douglas Coupland and I enjoyed it immensely. It was such an easy, fun read; its approx. 450 pages and I finished it in about 3 days. I was worried there would be a lot of computer jargon and references I wouldn't understand, but I was pleasantly suprised at my own knowledge.

For those who haven't read it yet, the members of JPod sporadically have little games and competitions to amuse themselves. At one point, they talk about the first million digits of pi, and how you're supposedly lucky if you can find your phone number within them.

My phone number is around the 42, 524, 700 mark, and I've decided to have a little competition of my own. The person whose number is closest to the decimal point wins an as-yet-undecided prize, courtesy of me. Start searching, fiends. :D
