lol. I'll use a small number of cores for entertainment stuff and maybe take a break or two to participate in PrimeGrid's challenges.

I ended up with something in the 43 million candidates region.

It is most likely a "set it and forget it" operation. That makes it easier than trying to look at the current status each day.

I suppose you mean "how big" as in "how many n" rather than "how many MB".

Sieving 1k conjectures would be a good use for that horsepower when the current work is completed.

Actually I meant: How many MB or in this case GB is the file?

It's not too bad. It's about 350MB in srsieve format and ~900MB in pfgw format.
