Now we probably can take F13 to the next level, and start on 65 digits. But what happens when we get one or both to the end of the 65 digits level without finding a factor?
Within 30 minutes of 30 days later we have
58,438 - 57,363 = 1,075 so about 5 short of 36 a day for F12
83,175 - 82,193 = 982 so about 8 short of 33 a day for F13

Happy birthday to Richard K. Guy!!

If at all possible, he should double down to $40 that in the next 20 years, you know, there will be another two complete factorizations of Fermat numbers!

I want to use 8GB of memory for stage 2, how do I set it on local.txt or prime.txt files?

In local.txt:

depending on which definition of GB you mean.
(Nowadays 8 GB = 8000 MB and you have to write 8 GiB if you mean 8192MiB.)

If you want a specific worker to have 8GB you add it below all the other lines in local.txt:

[Worker #1]
