I am facebook and former highschool friends with a curator at the museum of computer history. the museum is located in the former Silicon Graphics building in Mountain View. I used to live about 3 minutes from it.

And this is why I want to give out a litmus test to anyone that buys a MS from me:

Stoly decided to put a MS2 PNP in and ditch the DIY MS2.

I am not going to get in the middle of the argument. Just reporting our experience and the owner's request. Stoly's part and I completely understand his frustration when he is paying someone to fix a problem on something that should work out of the box.

His decision to burn it is extreme but also friggin' bad ***.

Cant get your aftermarket vTPS working on a 90-93 install? Burn it.

Apparently TDR couldn't get the vTPS to work with the DIYPNP i built. So instead of contacting me to figure it out, he decided to say my work is shitty, burn it, and buy a MSPNP2.

zero ***** were given on my end; I got paid. I just don't like that he called my work shitty when he hasn't a clue.

I once threw a dl980 g2 off the roof of the office buiilding my employee was consulting at.

Ten stories, it made a verrry big hole in the grass. We had to dig it out so we could throw it in the river. LNT!!!

"Someone" spoke to me about getting this car running and dyno tuning it. His shitty attitude now precludes me from helping out and making $200. The last thing is some ------ like that calling me at 3am on the coldest day of the year complaining about the car stumbling on ASE with 20* water temps, then talking **** about me on the internet.

Was that comment hinting at this forum being an "alpha club"?

I love how TDR's reaction was not to ask questions, but to throw it out and start over. Wow.
