So does the exponent on the 3 matter? Also, does this change the sequences that get posted for work on this project? (Actually, at the very least, it lets out sequences with 5 raised to an odd power, correct? That takes 71 more out of play right off the bat....)

A little more on my methods and why "sigma(3^n) mod 3 is 1" is important: see the formula for calculating the sigma of a number. If the current line is divisible by 3, that means it is 0 mod 3. Once we have its sigma, the next line is sigma  lastLine. Working mod 3, that's sigma  0, or sigma. So for the next line to not be divisible by 3, sigma != 0 mod 3 must be true. The sigma is the product of a series of numbers, which are the sigmas of the prime factors, e.g. sigma(2^2*3)=sigma(2^2)*sigma(3). If none of these numbers multiplied together are 0 mod 3, (i.e. all are 1 and 1, or 1 and 2 if you prefer) then the sigma will not be 0 mod 3, and so the next line will not be 0 mod 3. I'm sure I'm stating trivialities for mathematicians, but considering I'm the first in this thread to mention how to lose the 3, it might be of some use for learning for everyone.

Just by way of encouragement.....
Just to help motivate everyone, here is what the status of bchaffin's latest termination was in my last pull:
Code:
