Euler's 300th birthday

Via Nonoscience I came across this article on the 300th birthday of Leonhard Euler, the great Swiss born mathematician who spent possibly the larger part of his life in St. Petersburg. I am told that published 866 papers! How is that for a record? And what a great guy, considering that he was blind for last several of his years.
