Welcome to the Rockbox Technical Forums!

Well, assuming that the major version remains 3, and the minor goes to 14, the next Rockbox version will have to be 3.14!Of course, I expect that you would know what that means...PI!!!

Are there any plans for a pi-related Easter Egg? Maybe release day could be March 14th, 2015?

Why that day? What's so special about 3.45?

QuoteWhy that day? What's so special about 3.45?Well, here across the pond, dates are written M-D-Y. Therefore, it March 14, 2015 turns in to 3/14/15, the first 5 digits of pi!

Guess what? The number of days in March is not 100, so that 14 does not map to 0.14.

I really hope that you're being sarcastic.

March 14, 2015 is written 3/14/15 in the States.

In which case we use YYYY-MM-DD, or possibly even DD-MM-YY is acceptable, but never, ever, MM-DD-YY (which is just plain wrong if you ask me).[Saint]

The point is that pi is *not* defined as a sequence of digits. Attaching importance to coincidences like this just degrades the beauty of pi, for no gain.

Well, 03/14/15 in MM-DD-YY format DOES look like the first couple digits of pi to me.

For that particular date notation (which is not a decimal number), and for pi in base 10, and for those 5 digits, yes. It does *not* match the infinitely many other digits of pi, so it's entirely irrelevant.
