Where to download a lot of digits of pi? [closed]

Where could I find a large amount of digits of pi? I have already calculated 3.14 billion using PiFast (works well under wine).

"I know you say you don't care, but I seriously suspect your cpu can calculate them faster than your network card is capable of downloading them.

Given the last digit and the current state of the calculator used to generate it, the next digit can be found in constant time. It doesn't get progressively harder like finding the next prime does."

"On Ubuntu, you can sudo apt-get install pi

and then:

$ pi 100
3.141592653589793238462643383279502884197169399375105820974944592307816406286208998628034825342117067

It calculates arbitrary precision given the number of digits to calculate."
