Hmm okay. The maximum size of the residue is equal to the exponent number of bits, right? So as you say, right now it would be in the order of ~100-400 Mbits or ~13-50 Mbytes? That seems reasonable to store "somewhere". If everyone devotes some of their space all residues of the current assignments could easily be stored. But I guess it gets very complicated to keep track of and to synchronize the progress.

Maybe it could also provide the option for those who work in a team or for someone who works on different computers to spread the work of the same exponent on different computers?

In the end maybe its not worth the effort at all...
