What you need to do before starting your own bot

Last time, I discussed the costs associated with running a part time Magic Online bot. Today I will show you what you need to do to start running your part time bot.
First off, you need a computer you can dedicate to this task. I know, it sounds trivial, but this is an important component. This computer needs to be totally dedicated to running your bot when the bot is running. Not partially. Not running a torrent program, not running your Facebook games in the background, and certainly no maintenance programs like virus scans or spyware sweeps. All these things will slow down the computer and more importantly, interfere with the bot giving you totally unexpected results and we can't have that, can we? (I'm also assuming this computer meets the recommended requirements and can be left running unattended for stretches of time, say over-night.)
Secondly, you are going to need an initial investment, or a starting pool of money. For this, you go to the Wizards store and purchase a quantity of tickets. Twenty (20) is a good starting point. Makes these tickets trade-able and make everything else in your collection untrade-able.
Thirdly, Register, download, install, and customize the bot to your specifications. (I'll cover this in more detail in a future blog.)
Fourthly, schedule time for your bot to run. Since the bot runs unattended, this allows you to live your life. You can sleep, attend school, work, even go on that hot date; knowing all the while that your bot will be working to get you cards that you desire. Next time, I'll show you how to configure the bot properly.
