Riecoin and OS X

The Riecoin website (http://riecoin.org) suggests that Mac binary works for OS X. Unfortunately it doesn't appear to work on either OS X 10.9 Mavericks or 10.10 Yosemite: if you double click the Riecoin-Qt.app in the disk image, OS X complains that it "may be damaged or incomplete." The trick is to cd into the Riecoin-Qt.app folder/Contents/MacOS folder and execute the Riecoin-Qt command line app from the terminal. Voilà!

This one has quite a comprehensive backstory on mediocrity and niche contests/organizations that I may or may not get around to posting.

"what's life without a ferrari? very 99.9% :("
I think I thought about this when I discovered the site www.jamesedition.com.

"…intended owner is going through a divorce and can’t take delivery [of a $300k Lamborghini]." :(((
Saddest work email I've seen yet.

"Not too many bookworm types in fast Italian cars."
