that I once used VBA to build a mainframe test region (I'm possibly the
only guy on the planet to have been so stupid). It was lots of screen

in just a few hours. Surprised the hell out of my coworkers and they
started looking into VBA as a result (I should kill myself for that --
but VBA is a damned sight better than the COBOL we were programming
