Stable Mac client?

Has anyone found a blessed client that works on OSX 10.8.5?

I've been trying to use Mactrek 1.5.0, but that doesn't work very well.  After I die, I don't get the respawn window.

Alternatively, is there a client that works on Active X?  I can run that on my Mac.
Thanks,
Alan

a slight revival of empire (proto-netrek from pre-internet)

There has been an attempt at reviving this game with some modifications to reduce annoyances, and some
organized nights of fighting-for-fighting's-sake.

These tend to occur on Friday and Sunday evenings about 6 PM PT / 9 PM ET.

If you're on cyber1 (a free, open internet PLATO system), stop by empirenotes. If you're not, perhaps you
will be motivated to get started at http://www.cyber1.org/

For background about (this kind of) empire, see

Hours Report

James: Tell me whether you still require a revised hours report.  I have turned in two now that you have not paid for.  I am running out of funds. Do I have to steal from Smith's again to keep from being hungry?  It will help the sooner you tell me so I can prepare some theft plays that won't get me caught.

The total wqas clearly over 25 hours.  You can multiply 25 by ($22 / hr).

// 2. Answer:  It was relevant.  Nietzsche said 'Battle not with monsters, lest ye become a monster, and if you gaze into the abyss, the abyss gazes also into you. '  Nietzsche also said, 'This action nearly kills Zarathustra, for example, and most human beings cannot avoid other-worldliness because they really are sick, not because of any choice they made."  Solving www.spoj.pl problems is partly philosophical.  Did you know that the pouring problem can be reduced to modulo?  I bet you did not.

You did not pay for those dates, so I am perfectly able to bill for the other work I did on those days.  I am allowed to improve BABTWR and the others.  I am halfway to BABTWR under ten seconds, which is three times as good as your 37 second answer using Python.

// Answer:  If you would keep a constant Nyquist rate of surveillance of my reports you might be able to follow what I do.  Such as how I solved the Water pouring problem using only the % (modulo symbol).  Beep Beep.  This is Sputnik Sieben.  I spent a lot of time on the problem.  I havea good idea of what works and what does not.  At this point I am not interested in your input regarding it for I have a bean on it.  Two beans, in fact.

Sincerely,

Dear Zach,

would you please remove me from the list as already requested. The
remove-by-sending-email-with-empty-header feature apparently doesnt
work.

Thanks.

Hi, I was wondering if there was a list of all active players? I used to play on a unix system in 92', and the particular server had this list on the motd.

Also thanks for keeping the game running on your server! Makes me feel like i was 16 again playing at the local university lol..

Very Sad News

Michael Denison (Splunty) sent me a message on Facebook Sunday evening that
caught me completely by surprise.  He mentioned that Dan Damouth (Tuber) had
passed away back in 2010.  Doubly shocking as it turned out that Dan was only
a year younger than myself.

I am including Michael's message here for completeness.

=============================================================================
I don't know how else to share bad news with you.

One of the netrek folk discovered that Dan Damouth passed away September 19,
2010. I don't know if you were as close to him as some of us were, but if you
were, I think you have to know.

One of us should probably share with the netrek community.

Hope you're doing well.
=============================================================================

This was the first that I had heard of it which, considering that I was not
especially close to Dan, isn't all that surprising. I would, however, have
hoped someone in the community would have heard something about this before
now and passed the information on :(

I did some research and was not able to locate an official obituary for
Dan but I did manage to locate:

http://larryvoyer.com/genealogy/getperson.php?personID=I194285&tree=v7_28

Michael has confirmed that this was indeed him.

Besides getting this information out to what remains of the netrek
community I was wondering if anyone else had any information regarding
Dan's passing.

I've contacted Addison and asked him to reach out to Jitesh and that
crowd.

My thanks to Michael for informing me of this loss.

							John
