(there are many numbers large than it and neither N-1 nor N+1 can be >= 1/3 factored and are definitely primes)

Yes, someone can do this.

You, for instance.

Well, can someone update the Windows version of Primo?

Like me, Marcel Martin, the author of Primo, loathes Windows. He has good reason to do so as well. You are under a delusion that someone should "update the Windows version". Get real. Install Linux. Then you can run Primo to your heart's content. Better still, you can learn how to configure and run fastECPP. I believe Windows now facilitates a Linux virtual install through WSL2. The ball is in your court!

Sure. You can. And when you will - it will take you ~ a year using that 11-year old abandoned single-threaded version.

While with Linux version you can do it in just a couple days maybe even less. Just get an AWS spot node with most cores, set up libX11, gtk2 and go! At a total cost of 20-40 bucks. Why don't you come to anyone on the street and request they'd give you \$40? Get real. Earn money at the main job, spend it on your hobbies. That's the way the world works.

Even better, get to install, compile and use the new fastECPP - it is opensource and is demonstrated faster than Primo. There is no better way to get familiar with compilers and with MPI; and the skills that you will get are reusable and valuable on any CV.

What part of Marcel's FAQ is unclear?
