Alexander Yee - Formerly at Google in San Bruno, CA. Now I work in financial services.
I'm an enthusiast in computer hardware and programming. I specialize in high performance and parallel computing. I build computers, overclock them, and write software to torture the hell out of them.
I'm also the author of y-cruncher - a program that computes Pi and other constants. It was used to set the world record for the most digits of Pi ever computed at 5 trillion (August 2010). It currently holds that record at 31.4 trillion digits (January 2019).
