I'm not sure how either are related?

Minion checks it has an internet connection before it loads anything and gives a nice error. Before if there was no internet Minion would just hang on loading... for forever. Thats why one of the first things we do is check for an internet connection and present a nicer error so people have a better idea of what the issue is.

It does this by checking for a HTTP status of 200 for our API and CDN server. Some reason on really high latency connections this does not work.

Also Minion does not require you to login, never has. There is a [Guest] button on the login screen.
