If this is so, how can I sieve quicker? Citrix, would your sieve be amendable to do Woodalls? Or should I stick with Multisieve but switch to short ranges (10,000) containing 500 candidates?

Have a nice day, Willem.
MultiSieve is fine for that range since you are sieving all n in that range. If you were only sieving where n is a prime, then Citrix's code would have the advantage.
