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.

Do you recommend any good tutorial that describe the setup on Windows clients and Linux servers?

comment Allowing access to company files accross the internet
I thought about it but I'm not too sure: the connection isn't secure, which means you need to setup SSL separately and I'm a bit uneasy about the security issues and flaws in the various implementations. Maybe I'm just biased and I need to look it up further.

This also looks interesting. I found a HowTo that I will need to test: ubuntuforums.org/archive/index.php/t-1027820.html

Client machines are Windows XP/Vista. FTP doesn't encrypt connections so I'm really reluctant to use it. Does mapping a drive to FTP work in Windows?
