So it SEEMS to be zeroing on something close to -LOG(LOG(2)), but I give up.

Interestingly your number is quite different from mine. Ok that you have a couple of iterations more, but my average was pretty stable for the first 3 digits. I wonder why the discrepancy.

Moreover if you round to the 4th decimal place, you always get 0.5214 if the rounding is adding a "+1" to the last digit in the case the first digit to be excluded is higher than 5.

Wikis are great, Contribute :)
