Given the issues some people have been having with the workunits that are working on the CIFAR-10 dataset eating up too much ram (~1.5GB) as opposed to the workunits working on the MNIST dataset, I've updated the applications and split things up. There is now an EXACT MNIST application and a separate EXACT CIFAR application. Now you can go into your preferences:

http://csgrid.org/csg/prefs.php?subset=project

Select "Edit preferences" and then you choose to run either or both of these applications. I'm keeping things running for the old applications, so if you're running EXACT or EXACT2 the validator/assimilator will still accept things and give you credit for work in progress as we transition over to searches running on these two new applications. I hope this helps!

Currently I'm just running EXACT MNIST workunits as I get things going. Once I start sending out EXACT CIFAR workunits I'll give those a credit bonus over EXACT MNIST due to the additional memory requirements.

Thanks Travis, your work load is high yet you still get time to tell us what is going on.

Very much Appreciated.

I will now be able to place the MNIST work units on my 32 bit Windows machine and Linux can chew on the others.
