in thread (Golf): Sieve of Eratosthenes

The sieve of Eratosthenes is O(n*log(log(n))) arithmetic operations. Arithmetic operations themselves scale logarithmically officially there is another log operation in there. So within memory limits it should look basically linear in n. I might be willing to bend a log factor here or there. But if it isn't roughly linear in my tests, you don't qualify.

And BTW I am not worrying about strict.
