An Enigma cipher machine in an Excel spreadsheet, made by a non-programmer : programming

I just love Visual Basic, and the Excel / Access paradigm.  I just wish that Excel had basic RDBMS support.

This is interesting to me.. but it seems REALLY REALLY sad that this actually takes -any- time at all to execute.. I mean, how complex can the algorithm really be?

Maybe I’ll re-create this in .NET to see how it should perform?

I’m just excited.. I finally found the source code for this..

Honestly, I’m going to try to turn this into SQL this weekend 🙂
