I implemented this with 10^7 (because 10^5 and 10^6 failed several) and it is flying at just over 1 sec/composite! Thanks!

However, I've done about 7000, 25dd composites and at the same time, the count of 25dd composites rose from ~116k to ~163k. That seems to be in the wrong direction. And, my other machines are still offline.
