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 Why would var be a bad thing?
@ColeJohnson LINQ did not exist at the time the book was released. Nowadays, we use var for complex types (LINQ, lambda) but the rule of thumb remains true since these types are defined where they are declared and there usually no real ambiguity. If there is, then the declaration should probably be explicit.
