You should probably advise to set FIX 09 / Eng 09 / Sci 09 first. For example the result in Fix 02 is not too interesting. ;)

That's the fun with 9's :)
If you do 1/99^2 you get all numbers from 00 to 99, exept 98 after the decimal point.
1/999^2 (1/998001), you get your result
1/9999^2 (1/99980001) and its 0000-9999 except 9998 after decimal point.
And so on..

I use Maxima with bfloat command (bigfloat or large floating point) and 1024 decimal "precision" to get those numbers and I've seen that this amazing phenomena occurs with all 1/9...9^2 calculations.
