My name is Eric, and recently met several of you at the last Auroracoin meetup at Sólon last week. It was really great chatting with you all, and Hlynur, thanks for the deeper discussion over lamb wraps after the meeting!
Though I've been aware of Auroracoin for a while now, after the meetup I finally dug into it to run a full node. Unfortunately I ran into some issues on Mac OS X 10.10 (Yosemite) with homebrew. I submitted a pull request here to get it to build successfully on OS X.
It's working great now, and have a sync'ed up full node working just fine on my laptop.
Hoping the pull request changes continues to work correctly for other OS's!
All the best-
