Holy shit, I haven't seen VB since the late 90s.

I don't think what you're doing is pointless. At the very least, you'll be able to write some dank macros for Office programs that will make you look cool no matter where you end up working or what type of work you're doing.

Beyond that, you're learning how to learn a programming language, which will help you immensely if you have to learn another language on your own later down the road.

Keep it up OP, there is value in this.

Thanks frand. I used to think computers would be my life, but I don't know. They're getting so trendy now. Not the mysterious box that you can do anything with.

I think the limits of what you could do with html and low bandwidth in early web had a lot to do with its charm. That and the fact that to put one website up you'd need at least a bit of skill and willpower well beyond average current NPC levels.
I am thinking if one could define some constraints to the current web, lets say a subset of the functionality that we have in a modern browser, to what we would consider healthy for the web. It would be easier to implement simpler browsers to support the subset, and people with beefier browsers could also follow. I had this thing in mind for a while, but I never touched any web development to have a clear picture of what that would be.

I don't know what you're complaining about, using the web on the typical computer with a typical internet connection is orders of magnitude faster than it was 20 years ago. Computer power and internet speeds have advanced far beyond the rate at which the size and complexity of webpages has grown, it is literally a non-issue and only people who aren't actually old enough to have experienced the ``old" web, or were so young that they can only see it through nostalgia goggles, incessantly bitch and moan about how the web is so Le Bloated and we need to ``go back"
