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.

@SnOrfus: still using XPO but I going to migrating to LLBLGen, it is solid, mature and you remain in control (so you can still get your hands dirty if you need/want to) and it allows for more adequate separation of concerns and object reuse (through the Adapter).
