He should have been a tester

When trying to define what makes a good tester, a number of characteristics often come out: ability to learn quickly, attention to detail, resolve. I’m sure you could come up with more.
Which made me think; there must be lots of people out there who are slogging away at their job even though they were born to be a tester. They make a perfect match for the software tester role but somehow destiny has gone against them. Poor little souls.

Have you seen any of these people recently? Have you spotted a “should have been a tester” type person?

Load testing

I'm afraid this is the last cartoon in the "No user would ever do that" series. I hope you’ve enjoyed them!

Some people have not understood the cartoon about bugs being socialites. The idea behind the cartoon is that bugs often cluster or group together (in my humble experience). For example, if you find a number of bugs in one area of the software, you can bet your donkey there will be more bugs if you continue to test this area (although you might need to change the type of testing you are doing).
If ever you don’t get a cartoon, feel free to email me and let me know and I will be more than happy to explain, or add a comment to the post and other people might chip in with their thoughts too ;o)

One last thing, for all the twitters out there, I’ve just joined twitter! Search for cartoontester to find my tweets.
