I'm staggered!  So many!

Even more amazing was the speed by which the program generated those 1440 results. I copied and pasted into QB64 and hit run with the full expectation of it taking at least 15 minutes.

The program compiled and almost immediately there was one solution on the screen.  Wondering why the program stopped so suddenly I looked for the "primesel.dat" and "primesel.txt" files.

Between hitting "run" and seeing the screen output would have been only about a minute.  Marvellous.

Returning to that program listing the time was more like 5 secs.
