Gigapixel Tapestries & Gigadecimal Pi

StephenBenoit Duck to avoid Pi in the face (215 comments)

Consulting my Fisher Price Workstation, I have determined that the 3 Billionth digit of Pi is "5".

(Pause...)

More or less.

Seriously, the actual value is not the issue. Pi is irrational and the challenge is to encode a very large string of digits without using all previous digits to compute the next few digits.
