A foreigner living in a foreign land.

I have a love/hate relationship with VBA.
I loathe it as much as I am strangely drawn to it.
It is old but it will not die, it is ugly but equally fascinating.
When I code in VBA, I feel like I discovered an old secret that begs to be understood.
I imagine ways to hack it, to ply its ancient curses into modern idioms.
Then I fail.
Then I try again.

May the god of F# have mercy on my soul and liberate me from my sisyphean plight.

comment How to update front-end for MS Access 2007
@EricG I've been thinking about this but haven't found the time yet. Will probably do it when I can. It's not complicated, but it's not trivial either, especially if we want to make it generic enough that it can help a lot of people rather than target my narrower needs.

comment Win2008R2 Firewall will accept incoming connections from WAN but not from LAN
@Davidw The firewall logs show that the LAN packets are dropped, but there is no indication of which rule was triggered. Is there a way to actually debug the firewall in windows?

comment Win2008R2 Firewall will accept incoming connections from WAN but not from LAN
@Davidw it's what I am wondering. I can't see anything strange in the firewall configuration itself, and the rest of the server is working fine. When the firewall is Off, access to the server is working fine. When the firewall is on, access to the server doesn't work, even though the firewall rules allow this.
