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 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.

comment Best SOCKS proxy server for Linux
@poige actually, it can (wiki.squid-cache.org/Features/Socks) but it's not really the best fit for a SOCKS proxy.
