Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
As a young man, Boincinstein was interested in the works of distributed computing and he longed to discover the fabled credit heaven. He lost interest in both these pursuits and in science as a whole after seeing the remains of a 5850 destroyed by BGB 16; however, at the University of OCN, Boincinstein developed a fondness for powerful rigs, and became obsessed with the idea of creating the most powerful cruncher through any means, leaving OCN to pursue this goal for the next two years.

Assembling an awesome cruncher perhaps by the use of an SR-x, 5870's or a combination of both (he avoided the question when asked), Boincinstein successfully brought it to life only to be repulsed by its monstrous power draw. He abandoned his rig and fled his utility bill, which continued to grow as his rig ate up the points. In his mind, the rig spoke to Boincinstein and begged him to create a companion for it; Boincinstein agreed, but ultimately destroyed this new machine, aghast at the heat output in his house. Overloaded, the old cruncher heated the house to the point where Boincinstein’s partner left him due to constant heat stroke.

Alone, Boincinstein pursed the upgrading of the “monster" (as he called his creation) and, in an effort to control it’s immense heat output, moved to the Arctic with the intent of further overclocking it; he ultimately failed in his mission, however, when he fell through a hole melted in the ice and contracted severe pneumonia. He was rescued by a group of his old OCN friends, but died after posting his story.

His rig, past on to the community, was overcome by the lack of it’s master and commited suicide by burning itself alive running Moo!

They will both be missed.

Dark and I have discussed the matter and we have decided due to this being a special event we are allowing the winners from last month BGB to enter for prizes. Some other little requirements will be posted and added to OP once we have decided how to handle them.

I kinda understand but the days to choose from were slim with F@H having two events back to back and we didnt want to completely cover the holidays since most people might be off or some new games they want to play. wink.gif

At least I have a few weeks to get everything setup so the switch over will be easy. I'll get to try out my new 780 to run beside my 580 on Collatz.

I feel really greedy for asking this, but is it too late to have my signup adjusted to reflect this decision? :rolleyes:
