So Yesterday was Pi Day, or was it?

David Meego - Click for blog homepageWhile working hard yesterday I came across a post shared on the Book of Face by my friend Denni Conner. It showed the mathematic constant of π (Pi) played as a song and was an interesting approach to try and memorize the sequence of numbers.

DJing and RIP Pete Burns from Dead Or Alive
