Happy New Year, A New Year For Eryan 2

Sup dudes and dudettes,

Here is to wishing you all a happy new year and hoping that 2012 brings you great things. Its been 5 months since I opened up Eryan 2 to a handful of guys in publicdemands. At the time, Eryan 2 barely loaded and was almost nothing more than a uglified Eve window. Since then, the framework has come a long way. This progress is owed in part to those 200 of you or so that volunteered your time and effort in order to test it and report its many bugs, and also to outstanding guys like Danny, Mj, and EveCodeJunkie who contributed code to the platform. I also can’t forget to mention wibit, who perhaps unwillingly became my consultant of sorts in moments when really strange things have happened in the Eve client. This progress is also owed to BSmith01, RedFang, alinayg, Chronox and JulFoi, who donated their hard earned cash so that I wouldn’t have to spend mine in order to buy ISK, ships, skills and anything else that I needed during the endless hours spent developing this thing.

Today marks the end of an era, the time when Eryan 2 leaves the closed beta stages and enters the world of open beta. Not only that, but I am happy to announce that I am releasing the totality of the code for the framework. I hope that my code serves to inspire, teach, motive, or if all else fails, provide a good laugh to future would be bot-developers and coders. The Eryan repository can be found here. From now on we will have a stable branch and a development branch, anyone wishing to contribute code to the project can clone it and issue pull requests that will be reviewed and accepted if everything checks out.

I have received mails from some that would rather have me not release the code. That releasing the source brings with it undue attention from CCP, that it would piss off the legit bears, that it would attract unnecessary publicity, and increase cancer incidence in developing countries. To this I say that no tool is worth developing and no code is worth writing if it cannot be shared with those would have a thirst for knowledge. At the end of the day this is, after all, a game we are playing, and if the things we do in relation to this game cannot have a farther impact in our lives than to earn us pixels on a screen then we, as a community, really need to reconsider what it is we are trying to accomplish.

For the users that will be trying the framework for the first time, I recommend you play it safe by connecting your botting account through a vpn. Not only will you be safer in doing so, but by using StrongVPN you will also be supporting the Eryan project.

May you all have a happy new year, and I hope you enjoy what Eryan has to offer in the upcoming 2012.



The Journey To Pro

The Journey

“Every mind was made for growth, for knowledge, and its nature is sinned against when it is doomed to ignorance.” – William Ellery Channing

In every pursuit worth taking there is a learning curve, a time and place where there is a gap between what we know and what we wish to know.  An ominous mountain standing in the way of those intellectual riches we wish to posses.  The moment we decide the leap is worth taking, that instant when the overwhelmingly many subconscious opportunity cost calculations all lead to a single, unequivocal, GO.  It is then and only then that we have embarked on the journey, the journey to pro.

This blog is about that journey, its about knowledge, about trying, about success, and failure too.  This blog is about sharing with others everything I know about everything I know.  No knowledge is worth having if it is to be kept to oneself.

I will post pieces about botting, coding, the law as it relates to any of those, and everything in between.  As time allows I will also post video tutorials showing you how to do things that many people would rather you not know how to do.  I have grown tired of the secrecy surrounding many things, botting primarily.  Its time for a change.
