Well, I found optimized code for Fermat's method, implemented it in python and started it Monday after testing it on a small semiprime. It's been 72 hours, no answer yet. I'm getting the idea this is the wrong way to go but running out of ideas. Or I screwed up my code somehow. Or python has more evil quirks… I keep running into those.
