The meeting went very well. Sadly though, I have since discovered on my own a subtle error that leads to a glaring mistake. (For anyone that read the paper, Theorem 5 is simply not true -- numbers of the form 10368m+323 are a good example of its falsehood.) My apologies if I wasted anyone's time. I much appreciated the helpful suggestions.
