Let me start by saying that the link isn?t really a lemma, but since it?s probably not a proof either, I didn?t know what to call it.

I should also quickly add that I?m not a mathematician - or even close ? so I don?t really expect to be taken seriously. Even so, I hope you will take a look at the link and try to get at least a few lines into the equations. The whole thing is well under 2 pages printed so this is at least guaranteed not to waste (much) of your time.

I never use the proper name of the problem but that will be immediately obvious so you might want to refrain from sipping any beverages until you get past the first couple of paragraphs ? for the sake of your keyboard and monitor.

I know I'm making light of this, but I am serious about wanting to know if I might be on to something.
