    here's something for when you are really bored...

    in the decimal system we express numbers with 10 different symbols (0-9). in hexadecimal system additional six symbols (A-F) are added. now think of a system with 36 symbols (0-Z).
    a) change the number "REDHOTPAWN" from this system into decimal system.
    b) (if you are really, really bored) change it to binary system as well.
