Updated and expanded #introductions for all y'all new folk.
I'm a #bass player with way too much interest in avant-garde #noise experimentation, #jazz, and #punk rock. I have a #dayjob in #tech that I talk about too much. My favorite game console is a table and chairs where I play #RPGs, #wargames, and #cardgames. And somehow I manage to spend time with my wife amid all of that. I prefer free software whenever possible and use #debian on my personal systems though I enjoy #netbsd at sdf.org.
I love it when people say FOSS products have bad UX. It's like people just read a Computer World article 20 years ago and decided nothing has changed. Yeah, there's some not so good stuff out there (I'll throw my beloved emacs on that altar), but for the most part things are just as usable as their for pay counterparts if not better (low bar that may be).
Compare Thunderbird to Outlook or Chromium and Firefox to IE/Edge if you need examples. And I'll gladly take KDE over Windows Shell.
Hey, all my friends on my local timeline are doing it:
On your own feed, list 7 bands/artists that you’ve seen in concert, with one of them being a lie.
People can then post which one they think is the lie.
2) Niel Yong and Crazy Horse
3) Whitney Houston
4) Victor Wooten
6) Lightning Bolt
7) The Roots
My test cases, scenarios, and runs should not be jira tickets. Jira tickets are ephemeral things. Once they leave the kanban board they are forgotten until some poor product manager/data archeologist decides to unearth them again. And that's good. We should be working to the future, not focusing on the past.
But my tests are tools, not tickets. They need to be honed and maintained. I can't do that when they are buried under thousands of forgotten bugs.
There's something probably good in X-ray's guts. When I use it I can see why they made some of the decisions they made, but it seems like it is more important to integrate fully with Jira than it is to provide a tool QAs can can use to make our jobs easier.
X-ray makes my job much harder than it needs to be. I spend more time driving the software than I do running tests. That is a significant problem. A test management system should stay out of my way. X-ray actively impedes me.
I really do not like X-ray.
Talk about an application that checks all the boxes for corporate executives, but is frustrating and illogical at the boots on the ground level. I have yet to find a good workflow for taking a ticket to a test situation to a release. There is always some weird hard stop or bit of logic that it doesn't handle. It makes me cranky.
I can't believe it: but I really miss using TestRail. My only complaint about them was a bad interface for creating test scenarios.
Theres a new #LoPan album. Rejoice you naughty fuckers.
