Hi
Your MacOSX app is for Intel hardware only.
Any chance of a universal binary so it runs on my PPC MacOSX box?
many thanks

We're not currently planning to support PPC.

Since at least one developer is already running fold.it on a PPC machine (according to a posting in the forums), a binary has already been built for PPC. I can understand not wanting to support it, but is there any harm in distributing it so that some of us at least have a chance to play with it?

I'm assigning this to the aforementioned developer and re-opening it. If he wants to put out an unsupported PPC version, then there'll be one.
