That's a good idea. In fact, there are at least twenty sequences with
a line stating the terms have been verified by someone, but only for
one of them did it say how they verified it.
Besides using the supplied CAS programs (or in some cases, C++ or even
Excel), other ways to verify sequences is by comparing the properties
of some input values (e.g., if a(p) = x usually but there's one prime
with an output value other than x).
