I was thinking maybe it should have something to do with bowling, but then
I thought I don't like bowling all that much.

And then I remembered this idea I've been dragging my feet on: squarefree d
such that the "integer part" of the fundamental unit of Q(sqrt(d)) is
larger than the "integer part" of the fundamental unit of any smaller d. By
"integer part," I mean, for example, the 170 in 170 + 39sqrt(19).

The terminology is unsatisfactory, but then I thought: why not just use the
entire real number? So 170 + 39 sqrt(19) is approximately 339.997, which is
larger than 15 + 4 sqrt(14) approx. 29.966629547. My intuition is that the
sequence is the same this way, but a counterexample might exist.

I've gotten the A-number 294176. There are about 80 recycled sequences, so
those might slow down our approach to A300000.
