I have a TI-84 calculator, and I've looked high and low for an app that'll switch bases for me, as I've always taken exception to converting from decimal to binary on paper (the old-fashioned way). Do I have to write my own? Because my Assembly is the worst code out there...

This will not change the base your calculator operates in. It allows you to convert base ten to other bases.
Omnicalc, from Detached Solutions has the ability to change bases on your calculator. Put Omnicalc on your calculator, then go to APPS > Omnicalc > [ENTER] > 1: Install/Uninstall. It should say that Omnicalc has been installed. Then, from the main menu, press 2: General Settings > Toggle "Base Conversion". The box should be filled in (all black).
Go back to the main screen. Hold down the ON key and then press LOG. You can then enter a base from 2 to 36. Type in a number in base ten, and it will give it to you in whatever base you put in.
Different bases will have different notations. Binary numbers will be followed by a "b", octal by an "o", and hexadecimal by an "h".

TI basic would be easy, it also is not a hard thing to do by hand...
