Another vote! It's enough to convince me. I still can't wrap my mind around
it, though I believe you now.

I'm not a mathematician. For me to pretend to be one, I had to be in the
mood. I had to be concentrating on the problem for weeks, and then I could
do it. I have not been able to get back into that state of mind. I'm not a
mathematician even though my SAT score in 1959 was 754! 

All I ever dreamt of was to get a real mathematician, or several, to
follow up on my feeble attempts. There is gold there for a real mather,
maybe a thesis or dissertation. By all means, write it up.

I pass the torch, mostly because I don't seem to be able to pick it up
anymore.
