@joriki if I said a bunch of web workers talking to graphite, would it help? I'm not quite sure.

comment Is $0.999999999… = 1$?
@milo 8.999... = 8 + 0.999... simply follows from the decimal representation of the numbers involved.

comment Explanation of method for showing that $\frac{0}{0}$ is undefined
No. I don't claim so. The whole post is a reductio ad absurdum. ("Let's say $0 \over 0$ was not indeterminate, then what should its value be?")

comment Explanation of method for showing that $\frac{0}{0}$ is undefined
@Anixx It's a common mathematical process: since the property is true for all $x > 0$ and for all $x < 0$ and $x \in \mathbb R$, then the property is also extended by continuity for $x = 0$. Of course doing it here does not lead to a correct result: that's the whole point of the answer.

comment How can I approximate the logarithm of the sum?
@Rahul Wait, is $\log(1+\frac ab) \simeq \frac a b$?! That sounds... very strange.
