Comment 22 by Jos Gibbons :

                 On the 6.9 recurring issue, in non-standard analysis (of which I think even many mathematicians haven't heard) you can have a quantity infinitesimally less than 7 that can be thought of as 6.9 recurring in the sense it exceeds anything with finitely many 9s after the 6.

crumbs, you've got me there Jos!..I shoulda thought of the hyperreals...
