so far, so-so.

odd: i haven't found an error yet in my "proof" of this one conjecture.

could it be .. that i have a correct, complete proof?

[winces, sighs]
as much it looks correct, experience tells me that it's probably not. likely i just haven't spotted the error yet.

on a wholly unrelated note ..

i was watching "stranger than fiction" starring will ferrell, and at some point it started bugging me: dustin hoffman's character is named professor hilbert and the main character was to die from a bus crash on the kronecker line ..

.. sure enough, on imdb:

The last names of all the characters (and the bus line and publishing firm names) are the names of mathematicians, scientists, engineers, artists, etc.
