http://wwwhomes.unibielefeld.de/achim/prime_sieve.html has it labeled Sieve of Atkins and points the the PDF I referenced above.
Being a crank and all, its practically a given that I'll have many more misnomers than this .

Yes  I deliberated over the capitalization and singular
of calories. I don't think things were thoroughly standardized pre SI. I was weaned on the foot poundel, and considered the erg a newfangled Napoleonic invention David PS is there any concensus about kB, KB, kb or Kb for killerbight? Last fiddled with by davieddy on 20100412 at 18:35

I feel a new thread coming on, initiated by this latest

Then bi signifies bits and B signifies bytes. So depending on the quantity you speak of : it should be 1 KiB for 1024 bytes and 1 kB for 1000 bytes. 1 kb represents 1000 bits. KB and Kb are no units that I know of. Jacob Last fiddled with by S485122 on 20100412 at 20:28 Reason: fixed sup > exp tag and a missing / in an url tag

THX Jacob.
I will either defer to my previous communique, or get William Blipp on the job David

With regards to the sum of N odd squares (or in your case, squares of odd primes), 2^{m}K == N (mod 8) I recently noticed that any odd square is one more than 8 times a triangular number: n^{2} = 8t + 1 Trivial facts: The nth triangular number is n(n+1)/2 Squares are the sum of N consecutive odd integers Triangular Numbers are the sum of N consecutive integers Two consecutive triangular numbers added together is equal to a square Some aspect of these trivial facts might come in handy; calling a particular triangular number t_{i}, and the next triangular number in sequence t_{i+1}, we can look at twin primes and consider the sum of their squares: p^{2} + (p+2)^{2} = 8t_{i} + 1 + 8t_{i+1} + 1 Since t_{i} + t_{i+1} is itself a square that means that the sum of the squares of a the pair twinned primes is two more than a eight times a square. I don't know a use for this except that it is elementary fact accessible to me and it applies to all consecutive odd numbers but of primes, only to twin primes because they are the only consecutive odd numbers that are also prime. Last fiddled with by only_human on 20100415 at 01:41 Reason: grammar; rewrote generalization that applied to all odd numbers rather than just primes

as to the code if i know what to help with I do have a ASM forum I have gone to maybe they could turn it to straight asm ( apparently ASM is now changed with different OS but if we can get it to a form that will work on most OS'es would that be worthy ?)

I know some assembly but not really enough to help plus to assemble anything I'll have to use my links to masm32 download, and possibly http://win32assembly.online.fr/tut2.html
