Default 127*Sqrt(62)

Have you ever looked at its decimal expansion?

It appears to be

a - a^{-1} - \frac12 a^{-3} - \frac12 a^{-5} - \frac58 a^{-7} - \frac78 a^{-9} - \frac{21}{16} a^{-11} - \frac{33}{16} a^{-13} - \frac{429}{128} a^{-15} - \frac{715}{128} a^{-17} - ...

where a = 1000.

Curious!

or 10^6/2-1 = 499999 = 127^2*31 (nice factorization into mersenne primes)
