Most people begin counting with one, although in the recent
past some computer technicians have begun to begin counting
with zero. This is bound to cause problems and discrepancies.
January the first is not the second day of the year.
There are no businesses claiming, "We're number zero!"
If there are eight bits, why shouldn't they be bits one
The first bit = bit number one
The second bit = bit number two
and so forth...
What could be simpler?

> What notation is that ? Normally it should be b7 ... b0.
