Hmmm I don’t think today’s post will be very good, or contain anything particularly exciting. I should use this blog as a cathartic medium, but I’m bit in the right frame of mind for that at the moment. Ah well enough of the mystery, onto some mundane stuff, after all I still feel it’s important to write something, no matter what else is occurring.
Work was nicely busy, and even better for me I got tossed a lovely complicated Excel bone to gnaw my way through. It was mildly amusing, especially for anyone with a but of Excel knowledge. I’ve been asked to modify an Excel file that has been written by someone currently on holiday for 2 weeks, as some urgent changes are required. This file has some very nicely coded Macro’s in it. Nobody is willing to make any modifications to the file for fear of knocking out the Macro’s. me? I just diced in had a quick read of the VB code for the Macro’s, then just got in with the changes. To be fair 90% of the changes didn’t affect the Macro’s anyway. It was just other peoples fear that was preventing them from making the changes. I pointed out that the Macro’s attached to the file were beautifully coded, and were akin to pristine surgical instruments. I also pointed out that my modification would be like a dirty sledge hammer laying amongst these surgical instruments. As long I got results, they didn’t mind 🙂
Needless to say its just about all done now 🙂
