Clive,

I owe you an apology when stating you had 10+ digit decimals listed. I shot from memory in this thread.

It was above where Don Barone stated
>"Diagonal = 17872.643900665620322675285596275 inches"

That was shoddy on my part, and I do apologize.

For interest, I came up through engineering classes in the age before calculators and a pocket slide-rule was "the tool". Calculating a three digit decimal was a PIA. Let alone a 27 digit one as above. In the days before slide-rules when it was all long hand a problem like that above could have constituted the ONLY question in an important exam.

For the AE I think the above problem might have locked their more elementary system completely.
