I repeated the calculation leaving out
all primes divisible by 6.
It apears that the conclusion is unchanged.

As you may have worked out - I did have my doubts, then I had my doubts about my doubts :-|. However, I'm convinced that for at least 10 minutes last night I was actualy correct, evem if for the wrong reason.

Explicitly:
1 5 7 5 alone
5 7 11 7 alone
7 11 13 30n+11
11 13 17 30n+13
13 17 19 30n+17
17 19 23 30n+19
Therefore the gamut of sums is
30n + { 0, 4, 6, 8, 22, 24, 26, 28 }
and occasional 30n + { 16, 18, 20 }
Which falls somewhat short of the mark.

Oh well.

Don't be fooled, CRC Press are _not_ the good guys.
They've taken Wolfram's money - _don't_ give them yours.
