It's too far away to commute, and I'm not moving to Europe.
Pi. The answer is always pi.

Barnstormer: The phone number +61(02)64577414

36^5 + 2*36^4 + 16*36^3 + 4*36^2 + 9*36 + 2

Child's play.

Forgot to add 9 to your letter digits, dude. B36 = 11 (not 2) and P36 = 25 (not 16).

Child's play for kids with 36 fingers.

Simple base conversion.  Kinda obvious.  They even put the base right there.

From the article:  "The only problem is it's so tough, no one has managed to crack it yet."

Won't mean a thing at hiring time.  All they'll find are people willing to spend a few mental amperes goofing around with a puzzle.  At best, they'll get someone who will skive off all day surfing crossword puzzle sites and luminosity.com.  More likely, they'll find someone with an autism spectrum disorder who will insist he's a good driver and make precipitous exits from meetings because it's ten minutes to wapner.
