Well, I think that one reason that we have not seen much activity in the project lately is due to the fact that such a lot of work is necessary just to take 1 exponent 1 bit further from ^83 to ^84.
We are only humans and we want to see results and we want to be a little proud of what we have done.
I think a good idea could be to open a new range, but it is maybe good to keep the old range (M3321935017M3321935963) for CPUs. We are still some using CPUs for trial factoring, otherwise we cannot really participate in the project.
Another suggestion would be to trial factor semibits from ^83 and onwards. If we allow partial bits like tenths of bits to be registered on the webpage we maybe see some more results. What I mean is that we can report the results when we have done like ^83.1 of an exponent.
If we on the same time publish the "status.txt"file anybody can continue if we release the exponent, or maybe it is even possible to have a "status.txt"file creator on the webpage if an exponent is done to, lets say, ^83.4 bits and somebody else wants to continue from there?
