Ah… the difference between a manager and a developer :)

I had this chat with an ex-coworker (and current friend) this evening:

Developer: although … I bet that, unlike me, YOU can’t recite the number PI til 70 decimals!

Developer: Gawd… I AM a nerd!

Rob La Gesse: Uhm – I am a manager – I know WHO can recite pi til 70 decimals!:P

Developer: smart ass

Was all in fun – no flame wars required!

Just a short diversion so I can let you know that I *do* realize I have a blog here!

  1. @Paul – yeah. REALLY nerdy friends! 😉

  2. My my, you DO have nerdy friends indeed!

    (And, btw, since last night, I now can do 100 decimals. The 70 was only to beat the 64 that Arthur Benjamin recited at the conference I attended last month in Las Vegas. But he’s still way ahead of me when it comes to multiplying 5 digit numbers in his head! (I’m still kinda stuck at 1 digit numbers! ;-))
