You May Abuse Us Terribly But We Love You Anyway Zodac
When someone is unfortunate enough to wander into Overclock.net's(OCN) [email protected] subforum no doubt they quickly notice that an individual named zodac seems to spend disproportionately large amounts of time in said forum. Should that person be brave enough to click a link that leads them to one of these posts by zodac they'll likely think either "man that person's mean", "wow zodac is bossy," or anything in between.
However, for those of us who have been here long enough to interact with zodac know that he(or she we really don't know and usually just say it) is an indispensible member of the OCN [email protected] team. Zodac has devoted many hours of personal time into updating Team Competition statistics and recruiting new members; helping new folders troubleshoot client problems; writing, editing and updating an immense amount of guides; develop competitions and other events that increase community participation and yield large amounts of completed research; and naturally being a cruel dictator without whom the [email protected] Team would not be as vibrant and engaging as it is.
To celebrate and thank zodac for all that he(she/it) does for us and the OCN community in general, we(the OCN [email protected] Community) banded together to give him(her/it) a small token of our gratitude so that he(she/it) knows that we truly appreciate all that he(she/it) does for us.
While we have long known that zodac has a pre-built Dell and ridicule him(her/it) for it on a daily basis when we hear complaints regarding performance it took some truly ninja fact-finding skills on my part to figure out the exact dimensions and compatibilities of that system. Consequently when I found out that zodac was using a 9800gt and after this Chimp Challenge that it had practically went up in flames due to the heavy workloads and all the effort zodac commits to OCN it was clear what was needed....
A Brand-New Sparkle GTS 450!
However given that zodac is constantly stressed due to the number of people he(she/it) is constantly helping, kicking out the OCN [email protected] Steam Group Chat Channel, and everyone in the Team Competition begging for a stats update is was obvious that we needed to add something else to package:
There are other things coming in this package that we've chosen to not list so that there is an element of surprise involved and quite possibly because we thought it would be fun to see what happened when zodac opened the package and an angry badger leapt out.
When we first set out to see who would donate to this cause we were amazed to see the number of people who readily donated to the cause. While we believe this partly has to do with the general sense of fear zodac instills in the OCN Folders, it has more to do with the number of people who have had their experience at OCN improved because of him(her/it).
A personal thanks goes out to the following people who helped out to make this happen.
