... too short? ...too long?

I often give more terms than the usual 3 lines
if this is important, for example if
1.  the sequence is very hard to compute
2.  it is possible to give /all/ the terms, in the case
of a long but finite sequence

In the other direction, there are some famous sequences
which are known to be infinite, but only one term is known.
If that term is a large number, then a one-term sequence
seesm justified.
