We describe an efficient integer squaring algorithm (involving the fast Fourier transform modulo F8) that was used on a 486 computer to discover a large pair of twin primes.

We describe a successful search for a sequence of fifteen consecutive integers, each the product of exactly four prime factors. Fifteen is best possible.
