My posts to this list are on-topic, with the occasional paragraph (as
above) off topic.

I am trying to reduce time-wasting my contributing my CPU to the rc5
effort, but since the v2 Mac client has been released, I have not been able
to do that, since it fails to report back the blocks it has checked.

My posts to this list are mainly trying to find out how to get my checked
blocks reported back correctly.  How is that wasting time?
