On our quiet nightshifts as a tech, I first really started messing about with VB3, then onto VB4. I wrote a well testing application for the shift, as a standard approach for all the techs to use to minimise human error factors when calculating the test data traditionally done by calculators. and then poorly controlled spreadsheets. Then the other shifts adopted it.
 
It saved about 25minutes man time per test, and usually did 1 test per day, so you can see the savings it made. And it generated a standard html output as a report that could then be attached to an email for sending to town.
 
I got a spot bonus which was probably not far off a months wages (after tax) for my efforts.
 
So VB has to be thanked for that!
