You should work for Reuters. My daughter works for them, and was asked to prepare some data comparison automation recently. She wanted to do it in python, but they told her to use Excel macros.
BTW: Today I started a new project, that seemed to be quite easy at first sight. On the very beginning I got in trouble with multi-threading in GTK, which took me 7 hours. I’m going to bed at 3:30 am.
