I have an old Apple Power PC it puts out an amazing 1 SAH Classic WU every 3 or 4 days. When is SAH Classic going to shut down and put my poor old apple into retirement?

There is still development to be done. S@H1 will be shut down when the developers reach M2 in their coding. Can the old Apple Power PC run BOINC? Are you enough of a programmer to get it running from source code?

Its 120 mHz with 32 mb of memory running OS 8.5. OS X will not run on it. Its not worth much of an effort. I checked to see if it was running for the first time in 6 weeks tonight. It was still crunching away. Its my last SAH Classic machine. Just wondering when it gets unplugged.

I heard that linux will run on Macintosh PCs. If so, you should be able to install a fairly minimal install of Linux, and run the command-line version of Boinc for this.

I didnt research it any, so im prolly wrong. Just my thoughts.

PS: I normally spell correctly, but im tired.

Quite true... Linux runs nicely on Mac PCs. :-)

Just be aware, Linux/PPC isn't a supported architecture, so you'd have to go the anonymous platform route. It's fun that way, though. :-)
