I like pork pies. I'm happy to celebrate both. Maybe on Pi Approximation Day I'll by some that aren't the best, but are adequate.

Also, on a bizarrely trivial note, my birthday (23/08) is found at around the 830th digit of Pi. Who amongst you is more Pi than me? Who less?

My birthday, 16/4, starts on the 69th digit (including the leading 3). I win.

If we're not including the zero in the month then 23/8 starts at the 17th digit. I believe I take the lead.

http://www.facade.com/legacy/amiinpi/ tells you where your birthday comes.

Alright, if we're going to be really stubborn about this, we should include years too.

"Checking 1254543 digits of PI, I found 197724 starting at this location in PI: 968743"

I decided to go for the rational system of year dates used by PHP, i.e. starting with the largest figure and working downwards, year/month/day. Excluding the zeroes does give an advantage to those of us born in single figure months and days, but it does increase the chances of finding our birthdays.

Using Mata's system of dating, 1990416 wasn't found, however:

1641990 is 275,254th
16490 is 21,387th
164 is 69th
1604 is 22,622nd.

I'm not gonna win in any configuration. sad.gif

Well, if we're doing just month and day, the non-American way, I come in at digit 14. But.. that's without 0's.
