comment Does context (like as an argument in a function) allow for numbers in code that aren't magic numbers?
Is it a seconds or milliseconds should be visible from the signature of the function - this is not caller's responsibility

comment Why do arrays in .Net have Length but other collection types have Count?
Difference between Capacity and Length is - Capacity might change over the life-cycle of the object, while Length always stays the same. If I see a Length property on the object, I'd assume it's "hard" maximum number (or the border / index), while if I see Capacity property, I'd assume it's "soft" maximum number which I should only check against if I'm concerned with performance.

comment How can I avoid these nested repetitive ifs?
Unkown = 0 is a good practise. If you instantiate enumeration, by default, it will always has value of 0. If you match value zero with some valid state, you might end up reading the wrong flag.
