Good to hear. I'm not sure how srbsieve and srsieve handles the squared k's, but other than that, I can see that you have to go through 15 phases and the highest you have to sieve is: p=78,267,000 for (at most) 31458 k's. I'm not sure how fast your core is, but the sieving aswell as the running towards n=2500 could complete very fast. Sure am looking forward to see you estimation of completion

On a final sidenote, wich you may very well be aware, set the stop at p= value to 1e18 or maximum value (don't recall anymore) such that NewPGen stops once there is no more composite pairs in the sievefile - else you will produce bad results.
