How can I tell if it has been poached? It was only running as a DC, so I'm not sure why anyone would want to poach it. Should I cancel that job or keep it running?

What is the purpose of GIMPS teams?

Just wondering, because I figured most people would just be using their own computers and not part of a group effort per se. Is there a functional reason for being in a group?

You said what I meant to say. I realize all exponents must be prime, it just didn't come out that way. I appreciate the primer on primality testing and elimination.
