A project log for PEAC Pisano with End-Around Carry algorithm

Add X to Y and Y to X, says the song. And carry on.

In the previous log Aiming for w27 I tell how the scanning was performed. 3489660928 bytes (3.5GB) were generated by two 12-threads computers in scalar mode... Here are the results!

```\$ ./dump7ck -S log.27.p7k
opened log.27.p7k
Sum = 9007199321849850
```

We would expect this value:

```\$ echo \$(( 2**((2*27)-1) + 2**(27-1) -1 ))
9007199321849855```

Pretty close ! There is a very very small difference, but it's still here.

Now let's fuse all the semi-arcs...

There are 3 pairs of orbits  of length 272945433995450 and 15 pairs of orbits of length 545890867990900.

And that's it. w27 is almost well behaved but there are 5 or so states that have not been reached, probably forming a very short pair of orbits... It's not recommended since w26 behaves better.

And this heavy run took only about 6 minutes. This is because I used a pair of SSD over USB3, one for reading and the other for writing, and vice versa. The bulk of the time was taken by sort, while the fusion program was clearly I/O bound. Maybe, later, I'll try with 3 SSD because fusion reads 2 streams...
