Low power proofs are better than none. Standalone devices could drop to 6 (or even 5 if necessary?) and still save ~90+% of a DC.

Per https://mersenneforum.org/showpost.p...5&postcount=46 power 7 takes 1.5GB disk space for residues at 100M p. Since Odroid is Ubuntu and GigE, why not pile residues on a network shared drive and then clean them up after the proof file exists? A Droid, Pi or phone farm could share a single TB drive.

Right is more important than soon. And life happening affects how soon is practical.
