Stop groveling ... :P

I didn't mean anything negative by my comment,
only that we both have to think a little more about
this. Writersblock is pretty shrewd at times, he
may have us going for awhile.

And we apparently did note the same pattern.

I'm stumped for the moment ... hitting the sack.

What is the 100th number in this sequence?

1 3 7 12 18 26 35 45 56 69

Here's the answer in code:

?!??.!!!

Shouldn't be 25 instead of 26?

I think 26 is ok. 18+8=26. we don't have 18+7(=25) in the sequence because 7 already appeared there.

Great job on the sequnce guys. It is, indeed, 5764, by adding sequential numbers but skipping those that are self-referential.

Now, anyone break the code? The code reads 5764. Anyone see how?

Brhan, your code is incorrect, sorry.
