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.
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.
