Visual LISP (and AutoLISP) is Officially Dead

I'm sure some of you will disagree, but it's true.  Autodesk will never admit it, but it's true.  Ever since they fell in love with VBA, and got dumped in an alley by VSA, and then thought it would somehow catch on with the masses of casual programmers (those of us trying to get a job done, and programming code JUST ENOUGH to make the job easier and quicker).  Even though there are still (last I checked) some chores that ObjectARX (.NET) still can't do as well, or as "elegantly" as LISP, they're not going on a second date.  She's been dumped.  Bon voyage LISP.  It was a wonderful journey.  I will miss you.

PS.  The Visual LISP Developer's Bible project is officially comatose with no brain activity.
