Base42 is a wiki & forum dedicated to the exploration of a base_{16} (hexadecimal) positional number system using composites of base_{4} glyphs.

The central idea behind this is that if you forget the base_{16} multiplication tables or symbols, you can quickly reconstruct them from the easy to memorize base_{4} core.
