A bitter add on programmer

Preform AV enabler - probably the best add on I've used to coordinate a group all joining the same AV. Nothing is guaranteed, of course, but this particular add on is the easiest to use that I've seen along with the best feature set.

What's hilarious is that the author deliberately coded the add on for the Horde only. He obfuscated the code to discourage anyone from modifying it to work for Alliance players as well. That's one bitter, bitter programmer.

Here's a sample of his obfuscation methodology:
\41\53\43\49\49\20\65\6E\63\6F\64\69\6E\67\20\69
\73\20\73\75\70\65\72\20\68\61\72\64\20\74\6F\20
\63\72\61\63\6B

Wow. That's tough to figure out. However, I'm sure it's enough to discourage 99% of potential (Alliance) users not to use it - so I guess he gets what he wants.
