Counting from zero is a favourite topic on which to rant.
With regards to bit notation, Unicode might offer us a way
to be specific.
When referring to the "fours column" in binary notation,
we could write either bit3 or bit², depending on our persuasion.
Maybe if Unicode had been available to the ASCII-bound technicians
who originated the "zero-starter" practice, we wouldn't be having
this thread, eh?
