Software testing, quality assurance, whatever you want to call it, I assure you it's boring. We've got a big project coming to a close, and we're now doing "usability" tests on the central database for that project.

Basically it involves running a Visual Test script in the background, while surfing e2 and /. to pass the time. This is the kind of hellish grunt work that makes me dislike working at a small shop. At a larger company I wouldn't have to do this, but I hate large companies. That's why I work for a small one. I wear many hats.

I hate my brother:

Not really, I'm just insanely jealous of him and his way with the opposite sex. He's been out of prison for exactly 30 days, and he's gotten laid more times than I have in the last year and half. Yes he is slut bait. Yes he probably shouldn't sleep around so much, but damnit, well... I'm horny. Straight but not very good at it even. I got laid so much more before I gave my life over to geekiness. Maybe I should do something about that.

Oh great the test script is done on Windows 98SE. Time to try Windows NT 4.0 Workstation. The joy... the unending, unendurable, joy.
