Blue: Current World Record
Green: Former World Record
Red: Unverified computation.*
*To protect against computation errors from software bugs and/or hardware instability, a computation must be verified before it counts as a world record.
This is usually done by repeating the computation using a different and independent formula.

*This first world record for Pi was run entirely by Shigeru Kondo, but with a lot of support from me (Alexander Yee) to get it done. There was also a lot of backandforth testing between the two of us to stabilize the ycruncher software before he could actually run the main computation.
After this first record, we had more or less learned what was needed. So from there on, all the later records were mostly on his own.
This is a list of other notably large computations. They are notable either because they are long running and either came close to a record, or are for less popular constants that nobody tracks.
Blue: Current World Record
Green: Former world record or not a world record.
