To kick this off with a moderately easy one.

Given as input a number in a specified base (between 2 and 36 ie using digits 0-9 and letters A-Z) and the base of the desired number, output the converted number as a sum of its constituent parts. eg

Input base: 8
Output base: 16
Input: 1234
Output: 1234 (b8) = 2*16^2 + 9*16 + 12

Input base:16
Output base: 7
Input: 29C
Output: 29C (b16) = 7^3 + 6*7^2 + 4*7 + 3

(where ^ means raised to the power of and has higher precedence than *).

Also.

Given as input an integer number, by only rearranging the digits from the entered number what is the next highest number that can be formed.

eg
Enter number: 1243
Next highest: 1324

Enter number: 1234321
Next highest: 1241233

Given a list of artists and their songs, open a blog at Blogger.com and publish posts per artist with their song (Counting Crows - Mr. Jones, Radiohead - Creep, Soul Asylum - Runaway Train, ect...). Set-up a Feedburner account for this blog, and publish it's Feedburner RSS feed to your blog's sidebar with Blogger's HTML/Javascript gadget.

Using Javascript, alter the sidebar's Feedburner RSS feed, flipping the artist and song, with the artists name placed below their song, with a dotted bottom border separating each link. The song's text size needs to be slightly larger, different color, plus the artist and their song's text needs to retain it's original link.

5. Schuffle character string, all combinations, but no duplicates, to discover word.

Given a scrambled word, schuffle this string for all combinations without duplicates.

Within this list of combinations should be the word unscrambled.

Unfortunately, I've been studying for my Series 6 test, so that has been taking up most of my time.

Ok I can wait. I have other work and the TechNet Guru Competitions to keep me occupied.
Good luck with the exams...
