However, since computers always start counting with 0 it was natural

More like programmers never really put any good thought into what they

A = 0 TO 10 sort of things so they'd count the right number of times...

How many fingers am I holding up...?

Eight, and two thumbs. But there are only nine gaps between them...

Fence post error!


Are thumbs not fingers? I have a broken one now- so would it be
inacurate to say that I had broken a finger?

Thumbs are digits, but they are not fingers. Toes are also
digits. But if you ask someone "How many fingers do you have?",
the answer is ten. In aggregate, thumbs are fingers, but
individually, they are not. Some aspects of English are pretty
confusing. Like to discuss uniplurals? Or words which have
two different forms for the plural, but with different meanings?
How about verbs which have different conjugations depending
on what the object of the action is? How about words which
are their own antonyms? (That's one of my favorite categories.)

By the way, if you hold one hand in front of the other, you can hold
up ten fingers with only eight gaps between them!

Heck, I can hold up my fingers with *no* gaps between them! Beat that!

I can explain it for you, but I can't understand it for you.
I speak only for myself, and I am unanimous in that!
