That's my point. The value of pi can never change, hence it cannot be random. Sure, the outcome of the computation can change, but that doesn't make it random. If I try to write 1/3 in decimal form, the outcome depends on the number of 3's I choose to write down, but it certainly doesn't mean that the value of 1/3 is random.
