Although it's not really a concern for A000720, it should also be noted
that we have this guideline (almost a rule) that each line of a B-file
should have less than 1000 characters. You might be able to upload such a
file, but end users might experience glitches.
Here's a lot more information about B-files: http://oeis.org/wiki/B-file
