For all the slammin' I did of Joe VC++ and his ASP.NET treeview, the VB6 version of the treeview really is awfully useful when you know you need to have a Windows Explorer type interface.

It never ceases to amaze me how many stock controls you take for granted in Windows when/if you use it, and just how easy it is to grab most every one from VB. I'm tempted to write a Gnutella client in VB with the fewest lines possible just to show what VB's good for, especially now that Limewire apparently feeds you ads. Glad I stopped updating at 1.6d.

Anyhow, if only there were a hacker lang like VB (scripting lang < hacker lang < programming lang) that had the xplat nature of Java... And if only RealBasic were free.
