    There IS a reason for it, but I can t remember what it was! :- Maybe it was because keyboards start with the 1 and not the 0. That doesn t spark a memory, so

      There IS a reason for it, but I can't remember what it was! :-\

      Maybe it was because keyboards start with the 1 and not the 0. That
      doesn't spark a memory, so that likely was not the reason, but I do
      remember that Paul Opitz mentioned it back in the early BC396T days.

      > Just a silly question, but why are the system and group numbers on the main screen ordered 1-9,0 instead of 0-9? The scanner uses system numbers 0-99 (there is no system #100) so I would have thought the system number line would start at 0 and end on 9 to match the zero-based numbering.
