Regards sieving have you looked at the discussions on the Seventeen or Bust forum site. They have some very interesting ideas and the efficiency of the sievers has gone up about 100 times since Newpgen. Paul Jobling who wrote newpgen wrote a specialized version of newpgen called sobsieve and it was much faster. Then Phil Carmody also wrote nbegone which is works for non-x86 computers as well. They also had some discussions about the algorithms behind the sieving as well.
