Log in with an Apple ID which has upgraded a machine to Sierra, and look in Purchased Items.

Recommendations for connectors between Ethernet (WD MyCloud EX2) and USB-C? Currently attaching it via Ethernet and an Ethernet to Thunderbolt adapter to 2013 MBP, but will need a different adapter to work with 2017 MBP. The Belkin Ethernet to USB-C currently sold on the Apple Store is getting terrible reviews.

usb-c --> usb then usb --> ethernet

looks like anker has one as well:


also, I think a usb-c --> thunderbolt then Thunderbolt --> ethernet should also work

Thanks -- from what I read, going USB 2 to USB-C would be slower than Ethernet to USB-C, and I was concerned about ethernet to thunderbolt 2 to thunderbolt 3/USB-C (does NOT help that "thunderbolt 2" gets labeled as "thunderbolt").

Anker seems to have a good rep for battery stuff -- wasn't sure about their dongle-y bits.

Well, I think they all use the same chipset. Not sure why Belkin was so bad, but there are several adapters on Amazon that are getting 4+ stars. Doing USB2 to ethernet is slowing down quite a bit. USB 2 is only 480 Megabits, so you are starting at half gigabit speed before overhead.

Hey, Johnny K, Twine site seems broken today. I'm getting an error that says, "Can't find that page, sorry," when I visit http://twine.cc

I get a log in page when I use that link. Maybe check your DNS?

It looks like I only get that error when I use a browser where I was already logged in. If I use a different browser, I get the login prompt but it says my email/password is invalid.

And if I try to request a new password, it also says my email is invalid. Bizarre timing since I *just* ordered another one from someone on eBay.

And now it is suddenly working again.

I restarted the instance. The site got borked in a way that didn't trigger the usual alerts, mostly because those go off if Twine operation is affected, which it wasn't. So I got the second line of alerts, from you users. Sounds like it lost its connection with the database somehow. Happy New Twine!

Thanks! Are there still plans for a new version of Twine?

I'm just the idea guy. You're gonna have to run with it.

Absolutely. It's mostly in the stage where I'm thinking about implementation details in my head whenever idle. Industrial design is mostly done. Just back burner to other things in my life right now, but expecting to launch mid-next year, and ship end of year. Email me whenever you have feedback for new features. What are you doing with a second one?

I'm sussing out a message-based broadcast protocol so that you can create more complex multi-Twine rules. Useful now that they'll be able to do output as well. Like, you could use one as a switch, and on a trigger, it will broadcast "#group on", and any Twines tagged with #group will respond to the "on" message by turning on whatever they're connected to.

Anyone else have a Google router? We now have (100Mb/s) Google Fiber, and the router they supply seems to drop the Internet every day or two. Sometimes it comes back, sometimes needs a reboot. This appears to be whether I'm on WiFi or Ethernet.

If I told you it was called Twine 2x_, how would you pronounce that? :)

If I can have an internet-connected God of Thunder monitoring the water level in my basement, I'd be all in.
