An extension would be: find the decimal numbers (and the transforming base) in which one can write HP35, HP71, HP50G and so on. I Believe the base 37 would suffice in most cases.

Actually base 36 is sufficient to encode the digits 0..9 and the letters A..Z, base 37 just happened to work for Joe's amusing example. Web sites often use base 64 to encode data in URL's in the form of alphanumeric strings.
