We have published some new content about VBA in Office 2010:

Getting Started with VBA in Office 2010

Getting Started with VBA in Excel 2010

Getting Started with VBA in Outlook 2010

Getting Started with VBA in PowerPoint 2010

We have an additional article, “Getting Started with VBA in Word 2010” that will be following closely on the heels of these four. Announcing this content is a logical follow-on to the message I delivered a little while ago (Why VBA Still Makes Sense).

I was meeting with a customer just today who was talking about his company’s significant investments in VBA and how glad he is to hear that we are coming across nice and clear about VBA in Office 2010. This pleases me greatly.

I’m sorry to everyone who was going to attend my PDC session last week. I ended up with the flu and was pretty wiped out all week. But, I’m back on my feet this week, and I’m going to put my presentation on Channel 9 so you can see what would have been the best session at PDC 2009!

Rock Thought of the Day:

I put some words to a couple of my latest songs up on my blog, and you can find them here: Horizon and I Am Rain That Was Meant to Pour. I think I was unconsciously channeling the muse of Ryan Adams when I wrote those two songs.

Now, I turn my attention to Billy Talent and the truly notable riff in “Devil On My Shoulder.” The song is the complete package. Great riff? Check. Solid melody? Check. Lyrics worth sorting out? Check. The refrain in the song is nearly anthemic, and I can hear the crowd chanting it during their next show. What so often gets forgotten is how much the rhythm section makes a song like this work. My hats off to the bass player and drummer. Without them, the riff wouldn’t be as effective. Canada is proud of Billy Talent and for good reason--- keep it rockin’ Toronto!
