Speaking of quitting...

there's a new version of the MacOS client at ftp://ftp.distributed.net/pub/rc5/
which will actually quit when you press cmd-Q.  It's a hack, but it works.

No new optimizations or buffering in this client, sorry.  If Andrew Meggs
can't port the new client this week, and if I can get his preliminary
optimizations (30 to 60% faster) working on the test port, I'll roll them
into my old client.
