Euh ... to fit in 16 bits it would be 30030 (13#).


It it ain't you trolling, but them dozenalers. ;-)
They forget that most humans have 5 digits and two hands, that the supposed benefits of base 12 don't weight up to having (almost) the whole world change their way of counting, and having to replace (almost) all things displaying numbers...
