Apologies for being over a year late with my reply, lol - but I agree, 256/81 isn't Pi, it's 3.160493827. It does exist in my realm since both 256 and 81 occur there but the preferred variation would be seem to be 3.160557714 (mean circumference sarcen circle) in spite of the elegance of (1728 x 12) / 81^2 = 3.160493827.

The two differ by one the finer annoyances - I mean, ratios - 3.160557714 / 3.160493827 = 1.000020214, so if someone wanted to propose 316.0493827 for Stonehenge it would certainly be hard to argue on the basis of accuracy.

Good to see 9.87654321 here, although that's not one I use much. Mostly for good for impressing kids with 9.87654321 / 8 = 1.234567901, lol.

2304 is also one that dwells among my numbers, again one that isn't called upon much but it does have some roles, like 24883.2 / 108 = 2304 / 10 and so forth. As 64 x 360 / 10 = 2304, I'm usually working with 64 x 1.000723277 (my Mycerinus perimeter/height ratio) to get 2305.666430 x 108 = 24901.19742 x 10.

Also thanks for the introduction to Hugh Franklin, much enjoyed reading his webpages. I'm a tough sell for common square roots - is that a point of consensus that none of us are using the actual values for these? lol - but fascinating stuff.

Cheers!
