i havnt heard anything on my offer on this... but i have been doing some
playing around with a Mac OS App similar to what i had proposed earlier
(recap: and application for a user to download and run to let them know
if their particular machine has been tested by someone else...)
i found tht i can get the machine name... seems apple has decided if you
need to know what machine you are running that is how it is to be done...
i should have a app to release (as a 0.0.1 devel release) to do this with
the oldworld and nubus ppc machines... with the info and the few new-world
machines entered also... any suggestions would be appreciated...
