But Magnus already has 3 invites to pi day so just needed the balance :)

OK, call me a cheapskate but I'd really buy him a few more than that
if he came over here. Heck, I'd buy you all a drink if your ever down
this way. Brits need not apply, the beer down here is really terrible
guys, although, by the time you have drunk 31.4159... cans, you really
don't care what it tastes like :)

Oh, and they serve it up in litres down here too and at -something deg
C. Good job too, you really don't want to taste it. Rule #1, don't
drink warm NZ beer :)

73, Steve
