Someone please kill me. I just spent a whole day coding in VBA…
It is so mind bogglingly difficult to create a semi-robust vba macros that will not blow up when exposed to dumb users that it makes me want to puke. In case you never developed in VBA let me show you all the stages involved in working on a project involving this hellish language.
Stage 1: Cakewalk
VBA? Pshh… It’s not even a real language. This is going to be a cake-walk.
Stage 2: Leave it to Me!
I looked at the spec, and this thing is going to be a walk in the park. Leave it to me boss! It will be ready in no time.
Stage 3: This is Harder than I anticipated…
When I was starting this project, I did not realize that VBA is so ass-backwards retarded… It may actually take me some time before I figure out a way to properly implement this in a straightforward, easy and robust, user-proof way.
Stage 4: There has to be a way…
Hmm… There has to be a way to do this in VBA. I mean, how can you leave out an important feature like that. I just need to do more research on this…
Stage 5: WTF in Hell????
WTF? Why is it doing that! I didn’t tell it to do that! This is stupid! Eat the food! Eat the FOOD! Gaaaah! What is wrong with this thing?
Stage 6: Must… Kill… Something…
Fucking shit fuck fuck fucker fuck you aaaaagh!
Stage 7: ZOMG! Deadline!
This is supposed to be due when? Oh crap! Crap! Crap! Fuck the hard stuff! I need to get some of this stuff done and quick!
Stage 8: Hax!
I have had enough of this. There is just no elegant way to do this. I’m just gonna have to to hack it into submission. But first, let me put on my gloves, cause it is going to get dirty…
Btw, all the images I used are from Fullmetal Alchemist anime and manga.
