Calculating digits of Grahams' Number

    I was reading random topics on Wikipedia the other day, and saw something about the first 500 numbers of Grahams' Number.

    I want to create a program (probably in C#) to calculate as many digits from it as I can, but I haven't be able to make sense of the way it is done. Would someone be able to give me a hint of how the algorithm works. The only examples I was able to find were written in Python, which I wasn't really able to get my head around.

    It would be helpful if you told us what Graham's number is, with maybe a link to an article about it and possibly the algorithm that you would like to implement in C#.
