As said, hehe... I can smell a bot from a thousand miles! Eliza's brother call me you should! Or Alice's I don't mind, they are both cute.

Joking apart, this discussion is not for twin primes search, some supermod may safely move it to fun section.

However, we are number theorists; we use a mathematical construction called a 'sieve', but it bears no relation to a piece of metal with holes in used to sort material.

No, they're 'test sieves', which are rather beautiful metal devices used in industries that produce powders, to check that the powders have the specified size (or, using a nest of sieves, a specified size distribution)
