Fabrice Bellard, Pi record

Fabrice Bellard, using a PC, Computed π to about 2.7 trillion places, claimed to be the latest world record. (previous records are made by super computers that costs millions.) He's home page is at http://bellard.org/, which details this among other things. A highly accomplished C programer. Probably the world's top 100 or even 10.

What's personally interesting is that he also created a Emacs-like editor: http://bellard.org/qemacs/.

His other accomplishments include: FFmpeg (for processing multimedia data (e.g. audion and video)), QEMU (cpu emulator).
