Let's say AWS assigned you an IP address , which was Pi to 7 digits... would you release it if you didn't need it anymore?

    yeah, because it's just an IP address. nothing special about it, except how scarce they are.

    You could sell it, you could put a π site on it, or you could just ignore it 🤷‍♂️

    Only UBER nerds will ever know or care.

    The answer is yes.

    PS: my high school math skills just called and said Pi starts with 3, while an IP address couldn't possible start with anything higher than 2. There's no such thing as a 3xx.xxx.xxx.xxx IP address.

    Did I miss something?

    @devdiddydog not 314.15.92, it would have to be 3.14.15.92

    Ip: 3.14.15.92
    Dns resolve: ec2-3-14-15-92.us-east-2.compute.amazonaws.com

    If it gets famous, they'll snatch it away from you.

    @C0D4 There are other possibilities:

    31.41.59.2

    31.41.5.92

    31.4.159.2

    31.4.15.92

    3.141.59.2

    3.141.5.92

    3.14.159.2

    3.14.15.92

    I think this are all possible IPv4 Addresses with 7 digits of Pi.

    @happygimp0 - it deviates from Pi after that, so the possibilities go up a bit more from there

    @happygimp0 3.14.159.2**

    With 8 digits you only have:

    31.41.59.26

    31.4.159.26

    3.141.59.26

    3.14.159.26

    I think there are non with 9 digits of Pi.

    Assuming my listed 12 addresses are all with 7 and 8 digits of Pi, means the chance of getting an IP with 7 or more digits of PI is about 0.00000032 % (12 of 3.7e9).

    If you add 4*(10+56) addresses for the 7 digit addresses, but with added random numbers at the end, you get a chance of 0.0000075% (276 of 3.7e9). But i didn't consider the range that AWS has, if you only consider AWS IPs, the chance may change.
