Its name could be Sherlock, or Hercule, or Auguste, or Jane, or Nick, or Walter, or Sam, or Mike, or Frank, or... (my top of the head just ran out of detectives)

Not as often as ape hair. Probably because apes are mammals.

It is nice to know Ape Hair is waiting.
I also am waiting for a more interesting number.

But 88936 is quite an interesting number! It's the only integer number between 88935 and 88937.

88941

In base 11 it's written as 60906 which is nice and palindromic.
In octal it's written as 255555 which looks even better.
Now I wonder in which bases b a number n can be written with only one digit value. For 88941 it's bases 1288, 3866, 29646, 88940 and of course any base above 88941. Those bases all happen to be one lower than some divisor of 88941 because then it makes a two-digit number with the same digits. But it seems far from trivial what the minimum base is for any number. Numbers of the form b^x-1 will of course have a representation with only one digit value in base b, and that's the minimal base (unless b is a perfect power).

Thanks for the kind words. I haven't gotten much further with finding a pattern. Found the sequence on OEIS (because of course it's on OEIS) but the lack of information about it is discouraging.
