comment How was the system clock first used in early computers?
@DanPichelman Sharptooth is right - first computers appeared during WW2 and were intended for war, not commerce.

comment How was the system clock first used in early computers?
The first computers were extremely expensive. And were not toys. All of them were done for real work. There were toy languages and systems, without supporting HW. (but minus is not mine)

comment Extending a struct. Using helper classes rather than composition
Helper classes are not evil. The article mentioned uses logical fallacies. So, really it is NOT the subject of discussion. But still I'll give an example. If you want to extend the functionality for the non-extendable classes, for example, String, the helper classes are the only solution. Oh, since Java 8 the interfaces can serve, too. It is only one example, but there are many of them.

comment Why is first column of list called 0th in so many languages?
@Doval 2. What compile time? Many languages are interpreted ones. 1. What are you arguing for and against? I am asking this for the third time. You are merely continuing absolutely senseless discussion, jumping from one pointless argument to another.

comment Why is OOP difficult?
It depends on the language - in SmallTalk the distance (and everything) IS an object. But in C# you have mentioned it would be bad.

comment Why is OOP difficult?
A pair of points or objects should be regarded as an object. And distance should be taken as a function from the object. Using objects does not mean you make object from everything.

@Doval But the offset will be done. That is the difference. And again, where are the points you are arguing for and against? I can't notice them.

@Doval You are really funny. 1. You are proving the qualities of C thinking basing on C thinking. Base on machine code point of view. 2. What you are arguing against? Where is your point? I don't see it.

As for intervals, yes, but for segments, it would end at Nth element for 1-based addresation. Why intervals are so important? As for your definitions, they are irrelevant. For 1-based address you'll still have to substract size(element) in machine code.

comment How to handle hidden folders on deployed website
You should exactly set the technologies you are using. "The software recommends..." - What software? How does it recommend anything?

Yes, start from component diagram and maybe afterwards you will develop some part of it into a deployment diagram.
