COMMENTS

To decode the sequence, start by replacing the last two digits of a term by a letter of the English alphabet (01=A, 02=B, 03=C, 04=D, ... 26=Z); one gets for the first 11 terms 1A,1B,4O,5O,5E,5F,8E,5V,1C,4N,8F,... Now replace the remaining numbers by their English name: ONE A, ONE B, FOUR O, FIVE O, FIVE E, FIVE F, EIGHT E, FIVE V, ONE C, FOUR N, EIGHT F,... This succession of words is the alphabetically first one describing, step by step, the true state of the list so far.
In the first 100000 terms of ONE A, ONE B, FOUR O,..., no term ever starts with T and only one term (#13886) starts with S: SIXTYFIVE THOUSAND TWENTYSEVEN E.  Hans Havermann, Apr 14 2016
