I only noticed this page just now. I wish to comment on the "conversion" portion of the page.

Is anybody familiar with using Horner's rule for converting binary/octal/hexadecimal numbers to decimal format? (This is related to the "synthetic division" technique used for dividing polynomials by a linear factor) This I think is a more efficient way that having to accumulate the powers of the base to multiply by their respective digits.
