It would be good to help out, to encourage OSX development (especially PPC at this late time in its timeline).

[email protected] in case anyone needed the project link. I didn't see any new worker applications though, their applications page shows the OSX apps last updated Nov 2007.

It's a shame that only a small part of Tiger's operation is done at 64 bit, it appears that full 64 bit support is useful for this project.

I'm willing to test the new workers, but there is no mention of hardware requirements, only OS. Is there any point in attaching my G4s to the project?

I did a workunit on the beta site and also on the regular site, but no credits given. Is there a problem with the Mac app or is it the ABC site?

The work units credit depend on a quorum of results, your results are likely pending credit waiting for someone else to finish the same work units.
