comment Why isn't there a next operation on enums?
While the c/c++ compiler may replace an enum reference at compile time, that is not always the case for other languages: You can declare the underlying type of an enumeration to be any integral data type (int, short, long, byte, uint, ushort, ulong, or sbyte). Enumeration members implicitly coerce to and from the underlying data type, allowing for direct assignments of numeric data to variables typed as enum. By default, the underlying data type of an enumeration is int.

comment Referencing official documentation in source-code documentation
This is walking a very fine line about being off topic because it is an opinion based question. That said, I do think there are several answers that should work for you, including "do both".

comment Webpage source code
This question will probably get closed as being off topic, but the likely answer is that javascript associated with the page is using AJAX to pull data from the server. The AJAX calls are likely relative to the "server" where the page is being hosted.

comment How to backup data and images in this project?
Why was my question closed as too broad? There are too many possible answers to this question. It will depend heavily on what server technology you use for file storage. Then there is the matter of portable encryption and/or tamper awareness. And finally, your requirements say that you need to be able to import the data and images on any machine. You will probably be able to get better answers by limiting the question to one subject.

comment Best datatype to store a ternary, or three-state variable
That says that a tuple can store any type in up to an octuple (8 dimensions).

comment Best datatype to store a ternary, or three-state variable
Per that page: A tuple is a data structure that has a specific number and sequence of elements. An example of a tuple is a data structure with three elements (known as a 3-tuple or triple) that is used to store an identifier such as a person's name in the first element, a year in the second element, and the person's income for that year in the third element. The .NET Framework directly supports tuples with one to seven elements. In addition, you can create tuples of eight or more elements by nesting tuple objects in the Rest property of a Tuple<T1, T2, T3, T4, T5, T6, T7, TRest> object.

comment Best datatype to store a ternary, or three-state variable
In .NET you can use a nullable boolean. Most databases will allow you to store a boolean (or bit as it is often called) with a nullable state. You can also use a char for storage. The char will allow for more room at a later time without having to change the storage mechanism.
