The Case for Manual Testers

Let me tell you a story…. Once upon a time there was a magical world named IT.  It was a world of exploding ideas, technology, and of striving for excellence.  And every day it grew and grew.  Until one day, the demon EGO came in put a spell on all the cititizens of IT.  Because of this they quit striving…

A Rabid Competence

I woke up this morning feeling great.  Fabulous.  So utterly awesome that I whipped through a third of the Microsoft C# training program, and that was after I spent time on the Liveedge Online documentation.  That’s right.  Karin, right in the Driver’s seat.  Well straddling it actually.  My ass was just not in the mood to sit still, like it has anything…

The Inbetween

Over three years ago, I had a “manic” episode and ended up in LA, with all my stuff, on my way to becoming a professional actor.  Yeah, right.  Sure I did.  That’s what I wanted to do and I found enough faith the get me down there.  When I got there I discovered just how ego bound I actually was.  …

Ego, Friendship and Ranting

Today I started a blog.  This blog to be exact.  It’s not the first blog I’ve ever started but it’s the first one that actually has a purpose.  Usually my blogs are the neurotic rantings of my ego trying desperately to be heard.  And it does get heard.  I have friends who are willing to at least hit my site…
