Can't get Folding Working on PowerPC

I have recently been trying to get folding (version 5) to work on my Dual 2.7 G5. I have the Command Line interface installed, and have the username as "MisterKeeks" and team # as 3446.

I am also using "InCrease". I have set the Local Group to ~/Library/InCrease/unit

I have not been able to get any work units. The CLI is outputting this in the terminal:

And InCrease does absolutely nothing, as the controls are greyed out:

Not really sure about ppc, but I'd uninstall and reinstall again, and delete all work units if there are any.

Unfortunately, I think we've reached the end of the road for PPC folding.
The client has been deprecated for a few years, and the last Work Server is no longer being assigned macs.
Maybe try something else with the G5 - BOINC should still have projects for PPC

That's unfortunate. If twoodcc's suggestion does not resolve the issue, I will find an alternative, I have plenty of extra cycles!
