1592 Was THE Ultimate Pi Day BUT No One Would Have Known That — 3/14/1592.

by Anura Guruge



The first 10 decimal digits are
3.141592653 …

Two reasons why nobody in 1592 would have realized this.

  1. The 3/14 notation for month/date is primarily American and would NOT have been widely used in Europe in the 16th Century.

  2. The value of Pi to 7-digits had been calculated by then BUT was NOT widely known.

Worth thinking about.

What Were The ODDS That Albert Einstein Would Be Born On Pi Day — But, He Was On 3/14/1879.

hjby Anura Guruge



That seems so AMAZING.

I wonder when he realized that he was born on that auspicious day.

Probably NOT until he came to the U.S. because in Europe his birthday would have been on 14/3 rather than 3/14!

Victor Emmanuel II, King Of (Unified) Italy, Was Born Today, 197-Years Ago — March 14, 1820.

hjby Anura Guruge



Quite the guy. I love his pictures.

The scourge of the popes. Wow, did they detest HIM. Thought he was the antiChrist. He was excommunicated and died as such.

A very lucky man; a man with the Midas touch. Always in the right place at the right time.

Died young, at 57. Funny, can’t find out (easily) as to how he died.

IF Sony a7 III To Be Announced Within Week — Lack Of Rumors/Chatter Seems V. Strange.

by Anura Guruge


There has been a muted expectation that
the Sony a7 III might be announced at the
March 18 – 21, 2017,
The Photography Show“, in the U.K.

was discussed in this post.


IF this is to be the case you would have thought that there would have been much more ‘chatter’ by now.

With the Fuji X-T2 and the Olympus OM-D E-M1 MkII, last year, there were tons of ‘leaks’ at this stage, i.e., a week ahead of supposed announcement.

Are we in for a disappointment?

Is Sony this good at keeping announcements under wraps?

Don’t they need to invite press to the event etc.?

Just seems strange.

Hope I am wrong and that we do see the a7 III unveiled this weekend.

Fingers crossed.
