As it seems, that at the moment all bot's are very creative, I dare to
ask a question.

What is the known right(tm) algorithmic answer to the problem if a number
or a range represented by two numbers(start,stop) is in another range?
Think of a database with geographic locations and you want to to ask
this database (which need not to be a relational db) if there is data
in a given range. (Forget for the moment problems with cyclic ranges)

Same for time.
Is there a known good structure to keep such range information? Should
I look in the geometry department?

Thanks for any advice
