3,000 digits

I memorized 100 digits more today, and at a pub I stored these words: “Blogger recreates left-handed beer-stoup”, just in case you are left-handed 🙂

I want to take the opportunity to use this one as an example of how to translate back to digits (see The Method to read about the technique.)

In Swedish this is: “Bloggare omskapar vänsterhänt ölstop”

Here I have marked the letters we translate to digits:
BLOGGARE OMSKAPAR VĂ„NSTERHĂ„NT Ă–LSTOP
In each word it is the first consonant, then the first vowel after that, and then the next consonant after the vowel.

So we have

BOG
MAP

VĂ„N
LOP

Which translates to the digits

806
449

263
109

Let the sum of the middle digits of the two lines of each group be the last digit of the group. 0+4=4 and 6+0=6

Thus we have the final sequence of 86494 23196, which are the digits of position 2,990 to 2,999 in pi.

So, 3,000 digits done!
