Hey dgoulet,

Thankfully, your torsocks update seems to work well on OSX! I apologize for not getting back to you sooner; there were some family issues that kept me busy. Have you made any progress on torsocks since we talked? I am understanding the pure C code fairly well at this point. What's the next thing that needs to be done? I am free for the next couple of days, so I can work on whatever. I have Mint running in a VM, but OS X is my primary OS for development.
