2007 September 6 I replaced table with one that reads left to right instead of by columns. I wrote a program that generates all the numeric part, so now I just have to enter the headings. Before, I had to generate a column of even numbers then edit it in, then break it into columns. The new program automatically makes 5 columns, with the even numbers for the diferences.

Difference Count of 163,840,000 primes. Over 10 million prime twins! Calculation was on Tue September 4,2007 13:59:47 took about 1 hour on 1.7 G machine. Actually, I started in the morning but it took a while after the run was done to generate the following table.

  All gaps beyone this were zero.

My last run had 393,607,771 primes. Somewhere there was 354 consecutive numbers that were not prime.

A shorter run with a fifth the number of primes was done earlier.
