I can see that my editing of the definition of A179104 destroyed the motivation
for the entry. I'm sorry. I will restore the original definition, which was:

%N A179104 An offset of A119505 that gives a limited digit set {2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9} that in\
cludes 8:a(n)=DigitsPi[23+DigitsPi(n))

Also, the original values, as submitted, were

%S A179104 4,4,3,6,3,2,3,8,6,2,4,2,3,3,4,3,4,8,4,3,6,6,8,6,6,4,4,3,4,8,4,3,2,2,8,
%T A179104 3,3,6,3,3,4,3,6,3,4,3,3,4,4,2,3,2,2,3,8,2,3,4,6,3,6,6,2,3,8,4,2,4,3,3,
%U A179104 6,6,2,6,8,3,6,8,2,3,3,3,3,6,8,3,2,4,6,3,8,2,4,6,8,3,3,4,2,6,4,3,3,8,3
(as Richard pointed out, these were wrong)

Alexander Povolotsky sent me corrected values on Jul 05, namely:

%S A179104 3,3,4,8,4,3,5,3,2,3,3,3,9,5,7,5,3,3,3,9,8,2,3,2,8,3,
%T A179104 3,9,3,3,7,5,3,6,3,9,9,8,4,5,7,4,2,5,3,5,5,3,7,3,4,6,
%U A179104 3,9,3,6,5,7,8,5,8,8,3,5,3,3,6,7,9,4,2,8,6,2,3,9,2,3

which I put in plce yesterday.

So the next version of the OEIS will have the corrected terms
and the original definitions.

Having said that, I am still worried by the artificial insertion
of 3 at the start of the decimal expansion of Pi!

I will mark both entries as "unedited".
