Are you doing this for testing purposes? Or more for like system provision purposes?

Take it from their perspective - if you're willing to do the job for 42, why should they give you more?

comment Passing session while switching control to a pop-up window
@tester I converted this to a comment, since that's really what it is. Could you perhaps elaborate on how your situation is similar, or perhaps what progress you may have made on the problem?

comment What does a Sofware QA Person Need to Know to Perform Their Job (Essentially)?
Testing is bigger than Selenium and JUnit in the same way that cooking is bigger than pans and spatulas.

comment JIRA: Export list of issues with link hierarchy
In a round of enhancements on a recent project, we saved 80 hours of development by saying "Can we just add an export to Excel function?" rather than baking the functionality into the app. At first I was like "That's kind of lame" but when you look at it from the reinventing-the-wheel department, sometimes it's just a lot easier to dump the data to CSV and load it up in Excel!

comment any suggestions on automation tools for mobile application?
Welcome to SQA Stack Exchange, shwetha! Could you provide some more details about how Selenium Webdriver will help test a mobile app? It doesn't seem intuitive to me.

comment When to start testing a solo project
@Ardesco I can appreciate that - but I've got a lot of stables and a lot of horses and not all that many are bolting away. At the very least, my prize horses are showing up for their races, even if they're frolicking in the fields when I'm not looking. :)

comment Timing of development and testing in agile environment
That's a good point, Phil, but if automated tests could pick up everything, they wouldn't need a manual tester too. And in many corporate cultures, slowing the devs down is -never- a valid option. You and I both agree that untested software is dangerous and risky, but many (too many) places consider thorough testing a "nice to have".

comment Test cases in source code
At my firm, and the apps I've inherited, most business classes have a main method that provide "test cases and example usages". Not the biggest fan of them, but at least the cases exist so moving to an automated test framework should be pretty simple.

comment What bug statistics are most useful? Why?
That last paragraph is worth so much - not just in SQA but in a lot of aspects of software, business, and even life in general.
