I was a bit lazy to finish my range, but new results should arrive this week. Looking at arXiv: 1807.08777 (J. P. Sorenson and J. Webster: Two algorithms to find primes in patterns), (also jzakiya's program in Misc.Math) I should consider writing my own algorithm in C sooner or later, there has to be a faster method than the one I'm currently using.

It still seems counterintuitive, but OK, it is a good explanation. It seems like since prime numbers are more common than twin primes, the gaps between primes would fill up first. In the beginning, the first missing gap between primes is greater than the first missing gap between twin primes. However, at 1.05e16, the first missing gap between twin primes is greater than the first missing gap between primes. There must be a point where the first n such that 6n is a missing gap between twin primes passes the first m such that 2m is a missing gap between primes. I wonder when that point is. By the way, I meant 1.05e16 in my earlier post.

Not a single new gap in this range. Oy.
Taking 1.2e16 to 1.22e16.
