    I can't listen to the clip at the moment but what does "computer scours" mean?

    After listening carefully with headphones many times I cannot make it out. It sounds like eye-century, the eye-century of the key. Whatever it is, it does not seem to be a standard English word. It could be a unique word defined elsewhere in the code.

    "the idea is that something that is in the ith entry of the... the key is in the ith entry of the array"

    He says ith (pronounced eye-th), referring to the variable i.

    Ah, ith entry, pronounced eyeth. It reminds me of one of Darwin's acquaintances who, on being told of evolution, reportedly said "How stupid of me not to have thought of that."

    Thank you so much. You are amazing. Now I got it. He is talking about an array (a memory location to save elements in starting from 0 till N ) and index "i" refers to where we could put elements in an array.
