Depends on how big the number is. At the start of a sequence, too quick to measure. Higher up, could be months. I spent 6 weeks factoring a c157 for one of my sequence, so we could count that as 6 weeks for one iteration!

Depending on how the number factors, it could be up to 45 hours, if the number splits 5050.

3 how many time to compute 400. 966

Do you mean 966 to 400 iterations? Using this system (2.6 GHz, Vista 64bit, moderate load) it took about 35 minutes to get to iteration 385. I'll edit this later when it hits 100....
You're welcome!
[PS. Sorry, I had to put this one back on its primary task. The last 20 lines were going to take a while. Figure at least 12 hours at a minimum, getting longer as it approaches 400. So maybe ~12 hours to get the whole way.]
