    • Sweet find!    I'd definitely try to revive it.   Here's instructions on how to create a bootable OSX install USB. https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201372   If you have a USB windows keyboard you can use it.  When you boot up hold the option key [alt on a windows keyboard] to get the boot menu and then select the OSX install USB. From there it's a standard OSX install.
    • iMac 2011 second hand So I found an iMac on hard rubbish. Box and monitor only. I’ve found a power cord and got some life to it but it needed RAM ( they removed it). Bought that and now it’s asking for the previous owners password. I obviously don’t have that. My guess is something must have been wrong with it for them to just chuck it on hard rubbish but I’m willing to give it a go to get it working. There were heaps of other electrical stuff including other computers on the pile, it kind of looked like either they went to jail and everything they ever owned was thrown on the side walk, or they were evicted involuntarily. My question is, it looks like I now need an Apple keyboard to try and factory restart it. Will this clear everything enough to not require the previous owners details and I can just log in on my own Apple account? Or am I just going to waste more money?
    • CA3LE I did a couple of trace routes for you. My speed is right the max speed I pay for to a little above. That is to the Dallas server. This is the to Dallas trace route: Tracing route to dallas.testmy.net [45.32.203.96] over a maximum of 30 hops: 1 <1 ms <1 ms <1 ms 192.168.1.1 2 * * * Request timed out. 3 13 ms 9 ms 10 ms 173-219-226-228.suddenlink.net [173.219.226.228] 4 41 ms 31 ms 28 ms 173-219-233-250.suddenlink.net [173.219.233.250] 5 * * 30 ms dls-b23-link.ip.twelve99.net [213.248.88.228] 6 27 ms 25 ms 25 ms ntt-ic325660-dls-b23.ip.twelve99-cust.net [62.115.156.249] 7 26 ms 25 ms 25 ms ae-7.r25.dllstx09.us.bb.gin.ntt.net [129.250.5.25] 8 25 ms 25 ms 26 ms ae-1.a01.dllstx09.us.bb.gin.ntt.net [129.250.3.30] 9 27 ms 25 ms 25 ms ae-0.choopa.dllstx09.us.bb.gin.ntt.net [128.241.219.54] 10 * * * Request timed out. 11 * * * Request timed out. 12 * * * Request timed out. 13 27 ms 35 ms 26 ms dallas.testmy.net [45.32.203.96] Trace complete.   I hope I did this correctly to the Australia server: Just for a long distance comparison.

    • Noticing latency come down on my sensor. Hard for me to tell if things are better bandwidth wise because I'm getting a shaky connection everywhere for some reason right now. It was fine earlier. Normally fine. Oh well, that's why TMN is here.  Let's test it!   Latency wise, it seems to have cleared up.   Previously I was focused on a different server (Toronto) and you can see where I switched to Dallas when your post came in. Just recently it started to clear up.      This is a tool you'll all have access to soon. The expansions prior to release will make it even more useful. I don't want to say too much before the product is in your hands.   I'll just say, you can do interesting things that may be useful to certain people. Useful to me, usually means others will find it useful.   Initially this will be exclusive to members. PM me with "BETA ME!" if you want to be part of the beta group.   Here's my latest traceroute   traceroute dallas.testmy.net TRACEROUTE to dallas.testmy.net (45.32.203.96), 64 hops max, 52 byte packets 1 192.168.1.1 (192.168.1.1) 0.822 ms 0.386 ms 0.298 ms 2 cm-1-acr01.monument.co.denver.comcast.net (96.120.13.101) 10.712 ms 8.154 ms 9.836 ms 3 ae-251-1203-rur01.monument.co.denver.comcast.net (96.110.242.73) 8.213 ms 12.149 ms 11.754 ms 4 ae-12-ar01.denver.co.denver.comcast.net (162.151.50.41) 22.610 ms 10.198 ms 14.888 ms 5 be-36041-cs04.1601milehigh.co.ibone.comcast.net (96.110.43.253) 13.292 ms be-36011-cs01.1601milehigh.co.ibone.comcast.net (96.110.43.241) 14.948 ms be-36041-cs04.1601milehigh.co.ibone.comcast.net (96.110.43.253) 9.451 ms 6 be-3302-pe02.910fifteenth.co.ibone.comcast.net (96.110.38.122) 9.397 ms be-3402-pe02.910fifteenth.co.ibone.comcast.net (96.110.38.126) 13.430 ms 11.052 ms 7 ae3-6.cr4-was1.ip4.gtt.net (173.241.130.117) 9.545 ms 10.057 ms 9.506 ms 8 ae9.cr0-dal2.ip4.gtt.net (89.149.184.97) 29.847 ms 31.398 ms 30.328 ms 9 ip4.gtt.net (173.205.43.82) 26.588 ms 28.248 ms 26.254 ms 10 * * * 11 * * * 12 * * * 13 dallas.testmy.net (45.32.203.96) 25.951 ms !Z 25.291 ms !Z 25.839 ms !Z   like I'd expect.   But again, hard for me to test bandwidth at home when my connection is now having bandwidth issues everywhere. I test between TMN servers and it's been fine the entire time btw.   And yes, reset my modem and router.
