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 Setting up “Out of Office” autoreply on linux mail server
Thanks but not a solution. We already have our mail servers working fine. User have requested the "Out Of Office" auto responders as something they'd like to have, so I'm investigating it.

+1 for showing me something new. Unfortunately, it's not close to a solution, and it's not available on RedHat systems? ;-(

+1 for mentioning a better -albeit more complex to setup and maintain- way of doing what I was looking for. Maybe it will help others.
