    I've seen a lot of avatars that have a picture of a pie, the name of the flavor of the pie, and then "3 14 15". One i've seen had a MLP pony instead of a pie. What's up with all these?

    Here are some i've seen:

    OHH right pi day I forgot about that, that is somewhere around this time.
    What's significant about pi day in 2015?

    ------------
    Found on Wikipedia:
    So should I put on some avatar to celebrate it? I've never celebrated Pi day before...

    ----------

    why is it that everyone's pi avatars show "3 14 15" not "3.1415"?
    ----------
    Oh I found out, it's because of 3/14/15 which is March 14, 2015.

    Why, thank you for your kind words, - and I share your tastes on such things - but - in the interest of full disclosure - I cannot claim any credit for baking, or otherwise producing (or uploading) this particular one.

    Mind you, your own elephant and accompanying pi is a true work of art…..and I confess myself most impressed that you designed it yourself. Fantastic.

    Ahh, well my statement certainly stands in your case too! But I was talking about Raspberry Pi!:D

    Thanks for the compliment, although I should point out I've merely cropped and modified an appropriated image (which I claim is Fair Use in this case). But cheers nonetheless. :cool:

    My personal opinion? I think it's some sort of cult. I really, really do.

    I'm tempted to make a goat cheese & spinach pizza pi, but don't want to change my avatar. --3 days to think about it, though.

    A bit later.... If anyone fancies a pizza pi, here you go:

    Ah, bravo! And thanks for the explanation.

    That is one of the reasons I enjoy hanging out here, I get to learn so much that I just wouldn't ever get the opportunity to trip over in my normal day to day life.

    Ah, I see that someone has finally discovered the key to the mystery of the pie (pi) avatars..... :) Poiihy, great to see that Raspberry Pi avatar! I'd wondered if someone would come up with that.

    Let it be known that there's never a moment I'm not a bandwagoner.

    You don't eat the pie, you respect it. Admire it. Bask in its baked golden glow.

    Soon it would be 15/3/14 in China or 14.03.15 in Europe which matches 3/14/15 in USA time (or whoever else uses this layout). So only Americans celebrate this special day?
