Could you provide a link? I'm too lazy to search, but I would still like to read more about this particular approach.

Supposedly there is a modern pi generating algorithm which takes constant time to generate any given digit of pi requested.

    The former is available from Google, laziness is no excuse. The latter only works for base 16.
