We are introducing the possibility for users to select between shorter (acemd2, approx 4 hours on GTX275 cards) and longer (acemdlong, 8 to 12 hours on GTX480) tasks. Simply go to your account preference to select which applications you want to crunch for. Long task are of course credited higher, but GPUs with less cores cannot simply compute them in time.

When will you begin distribution of acemdlong tasks?
Will acemdlong tasks distributed at higher priority to hosts with both type of applications (long and normal) enabled?

I'd like to know that as well. So far the queue reads 0 for acemdlong. A rough time estimate would suffice.
