COMMENTS

The record high points in this sequence are 11, 23, 59, 62, 83, 99, and they occur at terms 1, 2, 3, 6, 7, 21. Since 99 is the largest possible term, this is the full list of record high points.
The first differences of this sequence (i.e., the second differences of A121805) fall into the range [90,90] for the first 99999 terms.
More generally, for a commas sequence in base b, the first differences are <= b^2  1.  Michael S. Branicky, Nov 16 2023.
