It is. It is a bit of an easter egg, but I have seen some people on youtube figure it out.
I will give you a hint. Diamonds and an anvil are needed. Also, a lot is in the name
the ITB isn't a torcherino. I can't tell you how it works in the pack you are using (the config can be different) but it only accepts X rf/t and need Y rf before it will uptick a crop.
That means if the pack has the energy requirement higher than the rf it can accept (which is default) it won't work every tick
not all blocks have an interface (because there is no value in adding them)
for the QEA, just use a hopper or something to pipe items in. Any mods that uses the RF api and can move RF around should be able to insert energy into the network.
If you can recreate the crash, please post the log on the github https://github.com/joekaiser/QuantumFlux/issues
