      It's a lousy bottom line, because it suggests that
      you have little experience of PrP hunting, Paul.
      One proceeds in 2 stages: sieve and then PrP test on what survives.
      After a deep sieve, experience suggests that
      that what remains has a PrP probability
      const*log(p)/Log(N)
      where const=O(1),
      p=depth of sieve
      N=target.
      Are you *seriously* claiming that you have
      a class of numbers of the form k*10^n+1
      for which const=O(10).
      If so, then produce some post-sieve stats, please.
      If not, please retract your vainglorious boast.
      David
