	Look at the draft of A084229.

	I am extending the sequence. Right now I have 30000, but will let my machine crunch over night. Looking for at least 100000.

	I suspect that for each possible value which A084229 can take, there is a maximum index.

I see that Jason K. added a comment to A243357:

Apart from numbers containing the digit zero, the first numbers that cannot appear as terms are 14, 18, 34, 38, 54, 58,... -Giovanni Resta, Jun 25 2014

The excluded terms listed by Resta are double A084229(3..8) = 7, 9, 17, 19, 27, 29. - Jason Kimberley, Jun 25 2014

This seems fairly unlikely, and would be remarkable if true. Here is the definition of A084229: Let b(1)=1, b(2)=2, b(n) = sum of digits of b(1)+b(2)+b(3)+...+b(n-1), sequence gives values of n such that b(n)=3.

Giovanni, would it be possible to find more terms in the "excluded"
sequence? In fact it should probably have an entry of its own - could you create it?

Best regards
