“Zany” About MbUnit…

January 28, 2007

It looks like Sean has been working hard on my FAVORITE unit testing GUI – Zanebug. He’s updated it to the latest version of NUnit (2.2.9) and added support for MbUnit tests (here’s a post with screenies). Now it really is “all that and a bag of chips”…. (did I really just say that?) Regardless, if you’re not using it as your test runner – you’re missing out big time. Guess I don’t have a reason to put off trying out MbUnit anymore.

I would like to add a corollary to the saying, “You can’t shoot the messenger just because you don’t like the message.”

“You can’t ignore the message just because you don’t like the messenger.” (Gosh I hope certain persons read this…)

UPDATE: Yes, I know this is called an “ad hominem” argument (wikipedia) but Latin is dead – I’m hoping that this will catch on instead. 😉

When Worlds Unite…

January 16, 2007

Evangelists and scientists unite against global warming. As a person who represents both sides of this, I’m very pleased to see this union. There had been a ton of FUD in this area and I’m constantly having to fight the misconception that global warming is a “farce” or made up or the part of some natural cycle. This is utter crap and not supportable by any known scientific evidence. I truly hope that this brings global warming to the front as an issue to be addressed and silences the nay-sayers.

Green Ride…

January 15, 2007

Why is it that most “green” vehicles are butt ugly?? The Ford Airstream looks like something out of a 1950’s sci-fi flick. All you need it Gort to crawl out of it – if I yell “Klaatu barada nikto!”, will that make them stop?? The Chevy Volt looks like something that Schumacher’s Batman would drive – not something you’d ever catch me in. I know that Dodge has been dropping these turds for a few years now, so why does Chevy feel the need to pick them up??

I know that a green vehicle doesn’t have to mean compromise, just look at the Tesla Roadster. It’s got all the marbles of a Porchse Boxster and the sex appeal of a Lotus. For all it’s expense ($80K), it goes a long way to show what could be…

Ok, now close your eyes and imagine…

Ever wonder which visualization method would communicate your idea best?? Now you can use the Period Table of Visualization Methods to help you decide. Just don’t mouse over the thing too fast – you might (re)visualize your lunch.

TFS Work Items from IE…

January 3, 2007

Just a note to remind myself (and make you aware), check out this handy little IE add-in that allows you to add a workitem (with all the needed info) directly from IE. Testers take note.
