Another Pi record

I have a customized home page on with, of course, a section on news aboutt 'mathematics'. I find it odd that I missed this news item about Pi.
A computer scientist claims to have computed the mathematical constant pi to nearly 2.7 trillion digits, some 123 billion more than the previous record.
Odd, the item did contain the word 'mathematics' and there hasn't been any other major news pushing the item down on the list. ( Items can stay on the list for weeks ). Maybe I trusted Google a bit too much in providing me with -all- the news throught their excellent google news service.

Mathematics: is it the fabric of MEST?
This is my voyage
My continuous mission
To uncover hidden structures
To create new theorems and proofs
To boldly go where no man has gone before

(Raumpatrouille – Die phantastischen Abenteuer des Raumschiffes Orion, colloquially aka Raumpatrouille Orion was the first German science fiction television series. Its seven episodes were broadcast by ARD beginning September 17, 1966. The series has since acquired cult status in Germany. Broadcast six years before Star Trek first aired in West Germany (in 1972), it became a huge success.)
