The record for the number of decimal places of accuracy for the EulerMascheroni constant stands at just over 29,000,000,000 decimal places set by Alexander J. Yee & Raymond Chan back in 2009. Does anyone know what function they used to set this record?
***EDIT*** On further searching the record now stands at 31,000,000,000 decimal places, Wow! How do we update wikipedia? :P ***EDIT*** Make that 119,377,958,182

See Alexander J. Yee's site
