As Tris will tell you, I've been annoying him to death about it :)
I understand that he is working with one of the Mac DES people on
getting a new one prepared for the Mac OS.

As far as quitting goes; use Tris' current Mac client (available at
ftp.ethereal.net/pub/rc5) - it has a -e option which will quit the
client when the amount of work you specify is done. i.e. put in -h 15
-e and the client will autoquit after 15 hours of blocks are done.

Hope so; the buffering/disk saving would be especially nice for me,
since I've got at least 6 Macs (including an 8100/80) that aren't on
any sort of TCP/IP connection.

For all of you Mac DES people looking for a team to join, check out my
team's page at http://avara.com/rc5. We're ranked in the Top 30 and
we're mostly Mac OS-based computers (although we welcome anyone).
