what position # do you think your exact 10000 bits will appear at?
(infact, mathies, whats the probability density function for
string of digits length N appearing in pi's digits per M digits?)
find M/N and there's your answer - might well be cheaper to
express the 10000 bits themselves, than a 100,000 bit long position #
in pi.
you cant exabyte-attack all possible integers, ya know.
