One question that comes to mind: how many steps are there for a given number, and how does this grow with the size of the number?
I discovered this magic number 3 * a ^ 2 today, it is not a random number.
I still do not have much information.
I'm not a programmer so I could take weeks.
Would anyone want to implement it?
I would be happy to share it with someone else

CRGreathouse implements it?
