Has anyone else just counted up from
-1 in the http://stackoverflow.com/users/XXXX
(where X is numbers)?
Why do regular Stack Overflow users
start at 1 rather than the usual 0?
Was someone who knew Cobol on the
if (0) returns false; this is usually undesidered and may lead to surprising effects if not considered. Additionally an unregistered user could be considered by the system as having ID 0 (and now
if (0) makes sense).
Also I don't know about you but if I'm counting how many people there are in the room I start with 1, not 0. And I'm a hardcore C++ programmer, but starting counting from 0 outside of C++/arrays seems silly.
And why are there random gaps in the
account numbers? Is this just where
accounts were deleted?
