Fun with Pi

Geeky fun: search to see if your name appears in π when the digits are converted to base 27 and mapped to the alphabet.

From the site:

MIKEPK In pi!!!

I searched 31415929 digits of pi, and found MIKEPK once.
The first occurrence was at position 6898826. What this means is that


pi = 3 + . . . + M

276898826
+ I

276898827
+ K

276898828
+ E

276898829
+ P

276898830
+ K

276898831
+ …


Where A=1, B=2, C=3, and so on.

This is much earlier than usual! About 1.7% of 6 letter names occur earlier than that.
