    ...see all that stuff is what confused me about programming, at first.

    imo, feck number theory, it's not a practical application of what you're trying to learn, it's a "backfill", as it were. If you learn the actual constructs of the language, the theory will eventually come about to make sense and how logic is inherently flawed for being itself. Then you'll get into the semantic difference in how different people would group nested loops, or the use of pointers...either way, that information isn't needed to utilize the tool.
    Every now and then, one of you won't annoy me.

    Hmmmm,

    IIRC values like "i" (the square root of -1) are mathematical "conventions" ???

    If you cannot do someone any good: don't do them any harm....
    As long as you did this to one of these, the least of my little ones............you did it unto Me.

    Well i is used by mathematicians, while j is used by engineers. We use j because i is already used as a variable for current, or the flow of electrical charge.
