Okay, I'll admit that you probably have to be a parent of a young child to agree with this, but here it is:
This all started when I showed my kid how fast the computer could count to 100 with this code:
Dim lCount As Long
For lCount = 1 To 100
.Value = lCount
We then moved up to "Wow, Daddy! Can it go to 1000?" Then eventually it was a contest to see if she could get her pyjamas on faster than the computer could count to 10,000.
This weekend, though, when testing out my new article on Having Excel Read a Range of Data to You, (written for someone who emailed me through the site,) I made the computer count to 10 out loud.
She was fascinated. Then we started with words...
The conversations got more complex line by line, with her talking to "Laptop". It took over 178 lines of conversation until Laptop finally sent her to bed. Great fun! (I will admit that I have a little fear that I just turned my laptop into a new game though!) 😉
