The following is the Gap size (difference between two consecutive primes) from a computation of 393,607,771 primes. The primes were computed on 2007 October 3 and took about 3 and a half hours to compute on a 1.7 Gig AMD based PC.

Yes, there were 23,878,169 prime twins. But I am still confused why a size of 6 is the most frequent, as it is with much smaller runs. Maybe 6 being a "perfect number" has more significance than I realized. This motivates me to want to test even bigger runs.

354 was the largest Gap. Still much less than my program's output max of 512. Incidentally the last prime of the run was: 8,589,750,839
