Now, here we apparently have an idiot who confuses the existence with zero as a
concept with a the use of a digit to represent zero in a positional system of
numerical representation. The two things are NOT equivalent.

understanding of astronomy is purely at the amateur level (or below). So
unless what I'm saying is directly related to VAX/VMS, don't hold me or my
organization responsible for it. If it IS related to VAX/VMS, you can try to
hold me responsible for it, but my organization had nothing to do with it.
