    PG kept sending him too many tasks, filling up his queue and he would abort them all. bcav has been crying about it on the PG forums.

    I am sure he could find something else to complain about somewhere.

    Well yes, but one wouldn't be dragged into his rain storm of cries if one were to remain anonymous. ;)

    I love how in their forums he whined about how he feels that EVGA not being in the Thor Challenge "Pure" rankings https://forums.evga.com/FindPost/2991517 makes him feel like they are treated like "trash".

    This is what he makes every person that ever mines feel like simply because he is hateful towards them. Basically, if anyone ever outperforms him he finds a reason to cast stones. He also never supplies a solution to the problems he sees because he knows very well that they are playing within the limits they have been given. Thus, he just wants to whine and complain.

    However, he forgets EVGA members get "paid" EVGA bucks for FAH which is a distributed computing project and per the Thor challenge rules would still disqualify them. Which he has partaken in...

    Bcav's whining didn't bother me. I just wanted to be sure that aborting tasks wasn't really a bad thing. I had never heard before that it was bad, so I wanted to be sure I wasn't in the wrong. No big deal.

    Oh, and I don't want to be anonymous. I want people to know who and what is kicking their ass. :cool::D

    Well done [H]ordes. We finished 5th as a team and manage to stave off AMD User team. The chart below tells it all till the last hour.

    I lost my 24 core system a second time early today, so I felt pretty shitty. Glad we kept 5th!
