I’m involved in a couple of things at work at the moment that are a real throwback to my programming days. The first task is porting a traffic distribution model from MapInfo + Excel + VBA to MapInfo + Access. The second task is to upsize a small desktop data processing package into something that can generate 168 30×30 matrices and not take all week about it.

It’s been an awful long time since I did any database work and I am very rusty. It’s a bit embarassing but I have to keep googling things that would once have been second nature. I hope I get back into the swing of things soon.
