I am an embedded software developer, working on a variety of control and instrument systems. Mostly I code in embedded C, sometimes C++ or assembler, sometimes with an operating system sometimes not. I also program tools for data acquisition, data analysis, software and system testing and algorithn prototyping in Python and Matlab.

From time to time I have enjoyed working through Project Euler and MATLAB Cody, but life away from computers frequently intervenes and I go for a swim, cycle or walk or do some reading or cooking.

Good suggestion. I will try it. I have been exporting my whole bookmarks collection to dropbox, but it is a poor solution.

comment Is iMac wired ethernet broken or mis-configured
So I tried another router and a variety of cables. The all work with my laptop and the iMac doesn't detect any of them, so I guess the ethernet port is dead. Stupid failure mode for an expensive machine. Thanks for your help anyway.

@slhck, sadly that is a reasonable point of view. However, many people are reporting the same problem on various forums, but none have declared whether they solved the problem with a hardware fix with a software or configuration change. Maybe we will learn something together?
