Interactive Mathematics Miscellany and Puzzles, Alexander Bogomolny  
An applet that combines addition and multiplication tables for bases from 2 through 36. In every base N, there are N digits. In the decimal system, for example, we have 10 of them: 0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9. In base 7, there are seven digits: 0,1,2,3,4,5,6. When N exceeds 10 we start adding English letters as needed. Base 36 uses up all decimal digits and all the letters of the English alphabet.
