comment How to copy paste from OneNote to Quality Center?
I was very frustrated with a very similar problem only a few days ago. In particular, when pasting data from Excel into Outlook, or from the web into Outlook, I don't want to have to whip out the format painter, or wait for it to render the formatted text just for me to remove all its formatting anyway. It works 'as expected' right out of the box. Very nice.

comment Testing random number generation
Not a fully answer, but one of the best ways to determine if things are random are to try to compress them. Compression works by finding patterns, and if they're random, there won't be many patterns for it to find in order to compress.

Perhaps you could elaborate on what advantage this will provide.

comment How to get the last value in a list/string using Python
Posts on this corner of the SE network are expected to relate to software testing and/or quality assurance in some way. This post fails to meet that criterion.

comment How do you manage the expectations of the management that the QA team would find all the bugs in their owned feature?
I would ask the developers how they managed to convince management that it was okay for them to write non-defect-free code in the first place.

comment Is FitNesse the only DSL for Selenium, or is there another DSL available?
As a side note, I have always found things that "allow a non-programmer to <task typically done by a programmer>" end up using more resources (time, money) than they save, even if it meant hiring or contracting an actual programmer.

comment Testing with no QA team in an agile development environment
+1 for 'done done', not just 'done'. That's been a constant thorn in my side when working with other developers when they are more focused on the 'done' part than the 'done done' part.

comment How close is functional testing related to security testing?
Generally, we expect answers to have more than just a link. They should have insight directed at the question being asked. It's fine to support your answer with references, and it's strongly encouraged to isolate the key points in your answer and say "for further reading, check out this and this ". But just a link is strongly discouraged.

comment Excel Add In for Quality Center won't run in 64 bit excel - is there a workaround?
We had a number of things break when upgrading to Office 2010 on our webapps. Granted they're homebrew, not HP, but as yet there's no workarounds we've found. I suspect it is a fundamental change in the API which can only be fixed by changing how the tool itself interacts with Excel. I know this isn't very encouraging :-(

comment Does writing “Given” “When” “Then” BDD style test cases scale up to larger, end-to-end scenarios
The effectiveness of a test only ever comes into play when it fails. The test is supposed to tell you what fails in your system. The more complex a test is, the less information you have about what is actually broken when it fails.

Could you perhaps elaborate on this a bit more? What is the site's purpose, and how it relates to QTP?
