In view of recent developments at AT&T there is a possibility
that the On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences (and myself
- but that's another story) may need a new home one day.

One solution would be to get a domain name (OEIS.org, say) and
find an ISP to host it.  However, there are complications:
Size: over 256 MB
Operating system: all the lookup programs use Unix shell commands,
   superseeker also uses Maple, Mma, C, Fortran, etc
   so they would have to be available on the host machine.
Speed: needs a big fast Unix machine to get
   the rapid response we have now 

I have had no experience with ISP's.
If anyone has suggestions or advice please email me directly.
