Subject: Re: even numbers not the sum of TPs?
I was trying to see if it applied to prime quadruples (or
B_4) ... and I did prove it,
using a sloppy-clever method, knowing that
the post-fermatistes generally like it if
"it is true for sufficiently large (say) even numbers; so,
I began with 200, and immediately hit a prime
taht was not a sum of two quadruples ... or,
was it four ... just using the quadruples
that were listed on Wookypoopya.
