If you give me that I'd be happy to make a graph over domain [0, 2].Here it is. Taylor series for , which will converge nicely for z in the range [0..2]. If z<0, take before generating slog(z-1)-1. If z>2, iterate , before generating slog(z-1)+n, so that z is in the range [0..2].

I'm not liking the way this looks either (don't worry, I used the same algorithm you defined). Are there any other ways to extend tetration that I can try? Hopefully one of them will make the graph without any angles. If not, I guess it just expresses a very odd connection. The function 2 {x} 3 is defined piecewise, so I guess it's just the way it is :/.
