1) Message boards : BOINC Manager : Wishlist for Mac (Message 26098)

Would it be possible to implement a search bar in the Messages tab (in advanced view)? This would be really helpful for people looking through the messages for the time when a specific event happened. It could be placed beneath the Commands box, and would show messages in order of relevance to the search terms. The alternative is something modeled after Firefox's Command-F page search.
2) Message boards : Questions and problems : BOINC & Mac OSX 10.5.7 won't play nice !! (Message 26097)

I run Boinc 6.6.36 on my 10.5.7 Mac Mini (Intel Core 2 Duo 2.0Ghz 2007 version) without any problems. Perhaps the file was corrupted? try to redownload and reinstall, see if that helps. it could also be a permissions problem, in which case you would want to go to applications>utilities>disk utility.

In disk utility, select the main HDD and hit "Repair Disk Permissions"

My system info:
Mac Mini (07 version)
Mac OS 10.5.6
2.0Ghz Dual-core intel processor
2GB DDR2 Ram @667Mhz
72oorpm, 250GB HDD
some godawful, utter s*** intel intregrated GPU
Boinc V6.6.20, GUI version
note: I run only one project, Rosetta@Home, which I have been running since 28 Apr 2007 and received 247,946 total credit for.

small suggestion:
I switch between Boinc's simple view and advanced view frequently, but I don't like the fact that there isn't a keyboard shortcut to do this. I have used Mac OSX's system preferences option to assign the "Simple View..." option a keyboard shortcut, namely command-S. This allows me to switch from the advanced view back to the simple view, but I want a keyboard option to do the opposite as well. I would like you to make it so that the "View" toolbar exists in the simple view so that I can assign a keyboard shortcut to it, instead of having to click on "Advanced" within the simple view GUI window. I understand why you want to make the Simple view as, well, simple as possible, and therefore took out almost all of the toolbar items. However, I don't think "View" would clutter it.
