uzi’s index outlet(right) used to index starting at 1 and you could not change this with arguments. that is an older technique i read somewhere. nowadays, you can simply give uzi a second argument like [uzi 128 0] to get it to index starting at 0(and the table being output to contains values starting with 0).
uzi helpfile also says, "optional second arg sets base index (defaults to 1 when no 2nd arg is supplied)".
not a silly question(tutorials cannot remain current to all the new developments at all times, they can be slightly lacking in non-essentials), answer is just made simple by helpfiles :)
