Information theory shows that the probability of being able to express 
any arbitrary large number in any form significantly more efficient 
than just showing the digits is vanishingly small.

If it interests anyone, I am slightly curious to find out a few 
primes in bases 8, 12, 16, 20, 36. I just got done adding
are other calculations I'm much more interested in, but I have to admit 
I do
care a tiny bit to know the answer to this one. There is also the
interesting issue of representing such large numbers in a compact 
manner. In
the case of the third vigesimal Smarandache-Wellin prime, I searched 
and hard for a concise way to express it in the form x^y - r, but to no
