Default Mac FICS chess client Kibitz -- updates

Hello all. If you use Mac and like to connect to FICS and you don't like Java/Flash/Wine interfaces, you may remember Kibitz.

This project went down with Berlios when that server went down. But I have contacted the developer, gotten the code online and am working to modernize it to work for newer Mac versions.

It's not ready for prime time now, but you may want to bookmark this page for later, or if you are interested to join the project then the more the merrier!

I've tried your release Version 0.0.5 from the github page and I'm getting the same problem as mentioned above: "The operation couldn't be completed. Connection refused", then it hangs with a spinner.

I use Mac OS 10.8.5.

Until this is fixed, you might try an alternative native client for Mac OS X, which is also written in Objective C:

It's pretty simple, but covers the basics and might be enough for an occasional chess player.

There's also a free one now called "Macbeth", but unfortunately it doesn't work on Mountain Lion.
