I'm not exactly sure, but I think it was because he broke several rules repeatedly, and the admins finally had enough.
I guess you could contact any of the admins if you want more details. I'm not sure it's wise to continue discussing it here, so that's all I'll say on the matter.
I haven't contacted the seller yet because the platform he's on (2ememain.be) won't let me create an account (something having to do with my current IP address being in their spam list for some reason). Anybody from Belgium willing to contact the seller for me?
Anyway I've been meaning to reinstall OSX on this machine. I received the floppy to molex adapter yesterday and lo and behold, it didn't work. Just to let you guys know, it appears that some IDE to CF adapters don't play well at all with old hardware (and since IDE is now obsolete, only old hardware have IDE ports, so basically it doesn't work with a lot of stuff at all)
So instead I bought a proper SSD, a OCZ Vertex 2 120GB. Not too expensive but not particularly cheap either. The thing is, I know for sure this will work, so it's definitely worth it.
Interesting, I've got a USB/FW external case I'll have to check out on the 6500 at some point, but trying to get the Tempo/133 running on the TAM equivalent is a higher priority playtime-wise for me. The FW route for backup of the QS is cool, but not sure how it would be for a boot drive.
With the fuss I've seen about finding the Crescendo G3 L2 500/1MB cards rather than the more pedestrian 400MHz variety I thought speed was an issue on the TAM scene. Have any folks gone to CF/SD cards in the TAM or is that a PITA as well?
You've all but infected me with the TAM bug with that question about a PCMCIA adapter for the one PCI slot in your TAM. Luckily I'm more than satisfied to muck about with expendable Gossamer boards on the bench.
Finally realized why USB is a big deal, with a USB KVM you can leave that gussied up 3400 KBD tucked under the TAM where it belongs, run your real computer and the purty thang (not my thing) sitting untouched for playing those MP3s.
