prime conjecture

I had posted a idea I had about prime numbers back in Jan 2002, called Sokol's prime conjecture

Will it looks like it has gotten a little attention.

well, I realize I sent original email to email listed at your conjecture page

anyway, to make a long story short, I basically came up with the same conjecture recently. I Googled and found you were 5 years ahead of me ...I was a bit disappointed until ...

I realized we both were wrong. I have formulated the proper conjecture and posted onto Wikipedia Talk page ...

again to shorten, I submitted my first ever paper to The Journal of Number Theory

Another fella has independently verified Conjecture holds thru 10^9, approx the first 51 million primes.

For the exact wording, you can visit my wiki page at http://billymac00.pbwiki.com/main

I am unsure about you, but math is not my specialty, just something I fiddle with

I refer to your work in the paper

I made the mistake of forwarding this to a mathematician friend and it turned into a pissing contest very quickly.. Ops.
