His 12th birthday by any chance? :D

Hahahaha...unfortunately, no.  He's ten today.

Would 12.21.12 formatting, i.e. multiple decimal formats with successive decimal places in fractional terms of their predecessors, actually have any mathematical value? It certainly would be a curiosity, though decimal numbers certainly wouldn't cut it. How many number systems would you need? Could it cut down on complexity? Well, up to base-64 certainly, but beyond that? Nah... I don't think it's really useful. Well. That was a fun brain fart. :D

Hahahaha...unfortunately, no.  He's ten today.

Hey, 10 is the perfect number in Pythagoreanism, so that's just about as good. :D
