The auction for the craptop is back up and running. Not sure exactly what I did to trigger eBay's fear rules. I was "restricted", not suspended. The difference being all I had to do was jump through a few automated hoops based upon my personal data and I was back and running. Mostly. The auction was shutdown and I had to restart it. Doesn't look like eBay charged me for the aborted auction though - that's a plus.
There is already one bid out on the craptop. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that this will be the end to this saga. The optimist in me is hoping to get enough from the sale to get a new iPhone (okay, shoot me I said it) and a Wii for the family.
