COMMENTS

In A084301, that is among remainders of sigma(n) modulo 6, chains of 0's can be large. On the contrary, the length of non0remainderchains is believed to be limited or occurrence of longer chains is rare. Consider remainders of sigma(5x) modulo 6.
The first 1000 terms are all divisible by 144.  Donovan Johnson, Aug 07 2013

EXAMPLE

n = 14590800: sigma values for {n, n+1, n+2, n+3, n+4} = {59658880, 15110144, 22806063, 20958080, 25533914} have remainders modulo 6 as follows {4,2,3,2,2}.


PROG

(PARI) forstep(m=25, 10110704400, 25, if(sigma(m)%6<>0, n=m; c=1; forstep(j=m1, m4, 1, if(sigma(j)%6<>0, c++; n=j, j=m4)); for(j=m+1, m+4, if(sigma(j)%6<>0, c++, j=m+4)); if(c>=5, print1(n ", ")))) /* Donovan Johnson, Aug 06 2013 */
