Sometimes I think we programmers take far too much pride in the
*complexity* of what we do, and shun truly productive environments
because "anyone can do it" kind of thinking. (You're reading this from a
guy who writes Pike/Ruby/PHP/C/SB code in a freeware editor just to be
macho man because I'm surrounded by people 2/5ths my age. Job security.)
This is a useful, powerful product, and the way it gets more exposure is

With apologies to VB lovers anywhere, this ain't exactly Visual Basic.
