Hmmm. I feel like the child in the "emperors new
clothes". These experts all backing each other up re
what they agree is "right". Sort of like politicians
but with better formulas. ;o)

Surely any child could point out that with the
0.9999 issue that ANY POSSIBLE STEP can only reduce
the error to a smaller amount. The *number* of steps
is completely confusing and superfluous, the error
must always exist as there is NO POSSIBLE STEP
that can eliminate the error, only reduce it a bit
more. And you really don't need impressive formulas
to understand that reality? :o)
