A HyperCard Stack (for Mac) to ear my voice (Simon Plouffe) reciting 100,000 digits of Pi. I copied my voice with digits from 0 to 9 and the program reads a file of 100000 digits. Hours and hours of fun, the folder contains a sound editor for mac that enables you to change the voice (if you do not like mine).
