For the infinity of bases, the smallest Sierpinski k may take any integer value except 2^x-1, x=integer.

There are generating functions to discover instances of certain values such as k=2,5,65 which do not appear for small bases.

This is down to the work of Chris Caldwell and his last year students.

for example k=2 for b=19590496078830101320305728
