comment Test Automation Design Question
Upvote as I was gonna suggest writing the tests programmatically. Although I was going to suggest in Ruby, but that may be just my personal prejudice. ;)

comment Selenium form input sendKeys doesn't always work under IE
done - would have added as an answer in the first place but wasn't 100% you were dealing with the same problem I was.

comment Selenium form input sendKeys doesn't always work under IE
Sounds similar to a problem I dealt with recently using watir-webdriver (which, if you're using webdriver will be similar). In my case I was able to resolve/ workaround by sending a click at the element (to select it) before using sendKeys.

Is this Selenium 1 or Selenium using Webdriver?

comment In agile (Scrum) practices, where do I start with making Q&A (testing) more efficient if the team is transitioning from waterfall to agile?
I strongly feel that " Quality is a shared responsibility of the whole team." should be true of all development teams. Not just agile ones.

comment Capture screen during exploratory testing
I now notice that Jing has already been mentioned in the comments. I've not had any problems with it although as I said I use it for shorter videos.

comment Will the new ISO/IEC 29119 Software Testing standard work with agile methodologies like Scrum?
I've requested a copy of the draft in order to review it and I've been informed that my request has been passed to the committee responsible for the standard. They are unable to give a timescale as to when they will be able to get back to me unfortunately. However, the ppt available here softwaretestingstandard.org/downloads.php (you have to register) hasn't allayed very many of my own worries about the standard.

comment How can I select a file to put into a file_field without using the absolute path with Watir / Ruby?
Yeah, fair point. Stackoverflow is where I used to submit these types of questions. Although this site is intended to include browser automation questions so I'd hope that an answer would also be possible to find here. :)

I actually have some sympathy with Mr.Y but hope one day he will realise that HE is responsible for convincing his boss that he is a professional and not the standard.
