I've been enormously impressed with the core members of this forum, especially hurkyl. There was a guy who claimed to have a proof of FLT, and hurkyl and others gave him a lot of time over two weeks and were much more fair to him than he deserved. Since I'm hoping to get a fair hearing for my own claim, I decided to post here.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I have a proof, using only high school algebra and elementary number theory, that I believe to be valid for all odd values of n, n being the common exponent. It's clear, simple, and perhaps even a bit elegant. It took me far too long to find, but hey, it's a tough problem.

I'd like to share it with everyone here and invite intelligent comments. However, I'd prefer to post the proof on my own blog, and then discuss specific details here if necessary. Does that sound like a good way to do it?
