I've extended the list of solutions of (d^3+e^3+f^3)/(d e f) = n up to
max(d,e,f) = 28393. It's still at:

Does anyone here know how to prove that?
What can be said about the non-integer values of (d^3+e^3+f^3)/(d e f)?
Also, based on my calculations it appears that the values of d, e, and f
can't be divisible by 4, but I don't see how to prove that either. Can
all non-multiples of 4 occur as d, e, or f? (29, 30, and 51 are the first
ones that I haven't seen yet.)
