Prime95 startup delay

Prime95 always waits a short time before doing work when the computer starts up. I've noticed that the number of seconds is not the same every time. So I'm a little curious:

Updating Prime95's source code to support internalization is probably the biggest challenge. However, this would make localization much easier in the long run.

I guess I can just normal amount of memory and reduce it if needed. The only downside is that P-1 assignments will have somewhat smaller bounds.

I usually allow Prime95 to use up to 50% of the available RAM on "normal" computers and up to 75% on more powerful systems.
