I have, on countless occasions, cursed the existence of “On Error Resume Next”. Why in god’s name did Microsoft see fit to include that abomination in very variant of Visual Basic is beyond me. Even VB 10 has it.
Then I needed to write a script. Just a simple loop that would download images from a web site. On the first pass it bombed because, of course, there were some images that didn’t exist. I thought about adding a simple try-catch block, then something else struck me. Sometimes errors don’t matter. Sometimes you can just keep on barreling on through without caring what did or didn’t work because ultimately it doesn’t matter.
