I think that making it singular suggests we're looking for one or a few extremely large primes, while really we're looking for many small primes. I think the movie reference is definitely still there, and it doesn't make it sound awkward having it plural.

I'm pretty sure we should have to change our IDs, but I wouldn't be surprised if it'd be possible to hardcode our usernames to this team.
This makes me think of something else, though: are teams supposed to be counted on LLRnet only, or can my manual work be counted towards the team? If it's the former, I'll most likely have the lowest rank of anyone there (which I might just have anyway, even if it's the latter, since I only have two Athlon cores ).
