Knowing when to retire PCs from GIMPS?

Almost two years ago I got a good deal on 10 refurbished desktop PCs, not sure the RAM, which I intended to use solely for GIMPS before realizing they would be most useful for double-checks rather...

It looks like everything is up and running again. I'm guessing I just had a dead switch. I'm using the same ethernet cable as before but everything looks great now.

2 as a factor would only have to be listed once, since otherwise you'd just be repeating the same factor. Are we both talking about different factors, not the same factor multiplied millions of times?

Right, but since there are zip files on various sites with the Mersenne primes themselves in typed form, surely the factors of the perfect numbers are somewhere online as well. :smile:

Factors of perfect numbers paired with Mersenne primes

Are there any sites listing all factors of the perfect numbers adjoining currently-known Mersenne primes? I'd be interested in seeing how large some of these factors are.

I've wondered for some time, what is the purpose in factoring numbers that have been found to be non-prime but which have not been fully factored?

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?
