comment How to Sell the Software Engineer in Test Position?
Can I ask what a fresher is? It's a term I haven't heard before. Does it mean someone fresh out of school?

comment How to obtain “fresh mind” results?
As a developer myself, I just sat in on a two day session where users flew in from all over the country to test (and break!) my code. I had my laptop and was firing off bug fixes left and right. My wife thought it was a punishment and it would make me look bad because of all the bugs. I said "Honey, most people aren't lucky enough to get this. All these bugs would have got found, I got to find them before they went live." I can't upvote enough the benefit of pairing a tester and developer together for a few hours! Both gain an appreciation for the other.

comment Why should I have a “closed beta”?
You can always close the beta once it's open, with the option of providing invites and perhaps an application process. So perhaps not closed, but "Open with a bouncer outside the Roxbury". Phrase it "Due to the overwhelming response to the open beta, we are forced to limit entry to the beta for a brief period." or something.

comment Simple SVN post-commit hook for Jenkins on Windows Server 2008
I have closed this as not constructive because there isn't a good choice for it. It is strongly discouraged to post identical questions on multiple sites, and I feel you're more likely to get an answer on ServerFault (or perhaps SuperUser - but don't make a new one there too!)

comment Test team names
@user246 I think that's true in every field (except possibly politics... :) )

comment Test team names
I tend to think (in terms of vocabulary) of assurance like "A reassuring word", or as google defines it "Tell someone something positively or confidently to dispel any doubts they may have." It's not your job to say it's perfect - it's your job to say it's probably good enough to get the job done.

comment Converting emoticons to images in chatroom: how to test this?
I would beware of overlapping emoticon grammars. For example the system might allow a smile face to be forward or backward, like :-) or (-:. Same with frowns, like :-( or )-:. But what if there's :-)-: is it :-{backfrown} or {smile}-:. That's the only real tricky thing I can think of in this case.

comment Considering automation parameters, which is better: relative Xpath or absolute xpath?
I have to agree with Andrew here. If you could elaborate on what the business problem you're trying to solve is, perhaps this could be salvaged into a keepable question. You can still edit the question even though it is closed, and I'll be more than happy to reopen it when it's ready for consumption! :)
