	I am looking for a way to work in arbitrary bases in Mathematica 
without having to use the base^^number and BaseForm[number,base] 
functions every time I wish to input or display a number.  Is there 
anyway to change Mathematica's 'default' base?

	Also, has anyone else had trouble getting the base^^number  function to
work when base is an expression and not a number?
