A Fun Diversion

Blog Post created by Rick Davin Employee on Sep 14, 2012

Rhys has a recent blog where he talks about his children's PI ages, where 1 pi-year is approximately equal to 3.14 earth years. Here's the link to his post: http://vcampus.osisoft.com/bloggers_place/b/rhys/archive/2012/09/12/nearly-1-quot-pi-quot-years-old.aspx .

 

I read the blog with some amusement but walked away with 2 pervasive thoughts: (1) Rhys is abnormally geeky, and I mean that in a good way; and (2) the PI community has been lacking in a useful tool to help others quickly calculate their own PI age as well as upcoming PI birthdays.  I can't sit idle and let the community struggle through another day without such a tool.  So I whipped up a quick VS 2010 project to fill the void.

I have attached a ZIP file of the entire VS 2010 project written in C# using .NET 4.0.  No OSIsoft objects were needed, which is good since some of us were born before 1970.
