I vote the next person who doesn't read at least one back back from this post to find out if you upgrade IC2 to at least 180-lf and reports a bug with the demandsEnergy() crap in it gets a 3 day ban.
Anyways. AtomicStryker, have you looked into the bug I'd posted? It has been here for as long as I can remember, and it's always been annoying as piss.
And you just could post a link to 180-lf, if it exists, cause we have only industrialcraft-2_1.112.170-lf in "Support" forum.
