comment Using FitNesse with .Net across multiple servers
@StephenGross: "Dev" environment tends to be developer local. Other than that, yes, we have QA and production. I'll have more of a poke. This is starting to become a bigger issue.

comment What are good guidelines to determine when to automate a test?
+1 : ROI is really the only measure, though some people will weight different "Return" differently and some will weight "Investment" differently. I'd add: How many times will the test be run, as that will impact the answers to your points 5 and 6. If the test is only run once, meh. If it's run many, many times you keep reaping the benefits.

comment What are good guidelines to determine when to automate a test?
@Rsf: I disagree: the last embedded system I worked on, we managed to get 80% of our system tests automated. OK, so some tests couldn't be (bad ROI), but 80% is still a good figure.
