PimpMyOSX is a easy to use Mac application that makes your network connections faster. How does it do it? It optimizes the OSX network performance by tuning kernel parameters to match your network environment.

One selects a network type such as cable modem, telephone dial up, DSL, etc. then PimpMyOSX makes the adjustment. If the computer is rebooted, the settings remain in place. That's it! A 20% or more performance INCREASE can be expected!

The performance adjustments are performed On the Fly. Adjustments are made to BSD kernel networking tunable (and other OS) parameters. PimpMyOSX tweaks network memory buffers used for more...

What's New

Version 1.4 - Changed some of the parameters to take into account the fact that maximum socket buffer size in Mac OS X is limited by the available system RAM.

Requirements

Mac OS X 10.2.8 or later

The GUI-Writers and Annoyware Publishers, instead of
publishing a " sudo -blah-di-blah", wrap up a GUI.
They are the beggars of the internet : "Dude, do you have a dime ?", " I hope you are uninformed enough,
to fall into my trap".

The GUI, actually isn´t much work. Most of their work
they put into, 1-15 counters, e-sellerate wrap up´s, and pop-up´s to register, before you even figured out, what´s it all about.

What a shame, one has to feel for fellow inhabitants
of planet earth.

Thank you so much. It's a beautiful piece of work! You really should try it.

It's elegant and thus far, hasn't hurt a machine. There's beauty in simplicity. I use it all of the time on my PowerBook G4.

By the way, go to www.pimpmyosx.com and click the RadioFuel button. We have a little Lower East Side streaming Internet radio also.

Enjoy!

Don't use this application! I tried it and i restarted my comuter and it doesn't let me log in! I have tried every single way to make it work. I know the password is correct so i used my install disks and reset the password. Tried fsck and still didn't work. i also tried to boot in safe mode but still same password problem. My last solution is to reinstall os x and hopefully that works.

Please contact me directly. pimpmyosx@gmail.com

I would like to communicate to you about your problem.

- When did you install the software?
- Which version of the operating system do you have?
- What type of hardware do you have?
- What was your optimized setting?
- Which version of pimpmyosx were you using?
- Do you have a licensed version of the product?

I see you are a developer at http://macguysoft.com and are creating a Cocoa product named MPad.

Do you have other products on your machine that may have caused the problem?

I haven't heard from you so I assume all is fine.

I'm not sure why someone would spend the money on this, when Cocktail does this, and many other things, for free, in demo mode.

Of course, your developers deserve to be paid. I'm looking at this from the consumer's point of view. Look at it this way.
In Cocktail's demo mode, you can use most, but not all of the tools. Registering unlocks the remaining tools. Network optimization is not one of those that get locked.
Cocktail certainly has the ability to make very complex changes to the OS that can potentially mess things up, should you make the wrong changes. The trick with Cocktail is that you don't play around with settings, just to see what they do, or if there is any improvement. You make specific changes based on your knowledge on what they will do.If a user sticks with the tools he knows about (For a beginner, say sticking with network optimization, repairing permissions, running cron scripts and the choices under the interface tab), he'll be OK. If you're the kind of person who would walk into an unguarded missle silo and hit the pretty red glowing button, whose function is not known, don't use Cocktail.
Right now, lets just look at the network optimization tool, as that is what directly compares with your product.
In Cocktail, you go to the Network tab, then choose the optimization button. You then choose the connection type from a pull-down menu and hit the apply button. Pretty simple... and free if you use Cocktail.

Thanks for the clarification on Cocktail. Let me know how you like the simplicity of PimpMyOSX... we would really appreciate your business.

What a scam... these type of tunings are accessible for free with other tools. At least if you're going to try and rip people off, try to have enough shame to charge less than $10 for a free tool.

The product works fine on my DSL connection. What about satellite? Any plans for that option?

$40... you have got to be joking. Especially when there are numerous programs that will do the same thing and more for free.

Get a clue.

Perhaps my research is incomplete. Please give me the names of the other programs that ONLY perform Mac OS X Network Optimization. We're really interested.

Thanks!

mark.anderson wrote "the same thing AND more". And there are quite a lot of it which actually do a lot MORE and cost a lot LESS than this (Cocktail 3.7 being the most prominent of them, costs 14,95 USD).

Pricing should always be reasonable. The price for this is not, it's the exact opposite of reasonable.

$39.95, hmm , I don't think so.

If this guy's looking for ways to support his crack habit or cable bill, he'd better find another way.

I'm sorry, but this must be an early April Fools gag-ware or something.

There's atleast 6 tools that offer much more for FREE!

hahaha
