```at first sight it seems to me as if
A038860 = { b(k,j) ; k=1,2,3..., j=1,3,5,7... }
A038853 = { b(k,j) ; k=1,2,3..., j=1,2,3,4... }
with b(k,j)=(k+5j)^3-k^3
(and k=0 might be allowed depending on personal idea of cubes)
but I don't have time to think about "completeness" and since I tend
to make small errors when I don't have time...

Yes, I have the book. It is problem 157 in this book.

Hello seqfans,

185 is the smallest positive number that doesn't start any sequence. Do you know anything special about 185 that might start a sequence?

The next one is 214 followed by 230.
