He doesn't. He doesn't comprehend that as far as a computer is concerned 
an integer has no specific 'base', it's only when presented in a form for 
humans to read that it gets base information added in the representation.

He's making these and other similar errors in the javascript groups too.

I suspect he's one of those people that spends his time thinking up 
elaborate solutions that he has no idea how to implement as a response to 
dreamt up non existent problems.
