comment Best guidelines for bug reporting?
I really like "be careful of the tone" and "understand your audience" (which of course are good practices in ALL communication). Coming across as "you owe me these fixes because you're lowly development" is an easy way to get your fix sent to the bottom of the pile.

comment Should I unit test small projects?
This isn't so much an answer, but if the project is important enough to have 3 people working on it, it's important enough to get some testing on it too. I am torn about whether my single-person project should have testing on it!

comment Looking for a faulty application for training
Ironically, this has a key potential answer for the OP: weekend testing would be an excellent way to get some testing done, if they're willing to do it on the weekend that is.

comment My team codes in one language, I want to test using another. What can go wrong?
You know, I only ever hear "what can go wrong" in movies, right before something really bad happens...

comment Transition from all manual testing to automated testing
Big +1 for simple stuff first. If you try to automate the more difficult tests, when they fail and there's something wrong in your test (as opposed to what you're testing) the naysayers will be all up in your face. "A ha! We told you this convoluted testing thing was faulty! Allow us to ignore the 50 bug reports already submitted and focus on this one, complicated thing that failed!" And honestly, I'm not exaggerating...

comment Is my test a perf unit functional smoke test or something else?
I'm having difficulty extracting your problem from your question. Perhaps you could rephrase it or add a clarification exactly what the problem is you're trying to solve?

comment What is Functional Show Stopper in Bug Tracking?
I'm guessing "shop term" is a "shop term" that you came up with in your particular location or locale? :-) A quick Google search came up with nothing but offers to buy life insurance.

comment Learning about Ethical Hacking
I could see security being useful too, but I would expect a good tester to know a thing or two about it. Even if the intent is different, the goal is still to make the application do something unintended.

comment Automatically only run the fast tests?
It would seem a prerequisite of doing this automatically would be to running the tests to see if they take a "long time" or not. It also would require periodic updates to the "long time"ness of a test to ensure it has not since lost the "long time" state.

comment Test cases for find and replace function of notepad
Welcome to SQA.se, rohit! I notice a distinct lack of a question here. There are a great number of different ways to test, and it would be much better if you could provide some more details: background of why you wrote it, what you hope your tests will accomplish, how comprehensive these tests are intended to be, and the like. If you edit this post, post a comment to let me know so I can reopen it, or feel free to post a new question that... actually has a question :-) One of the hallmarks of a good question is showing what research you've already done so others can pick up where you left off.

comment List and role of different types of testing environments
Indeed, I agree with user246. Provide some background as to why you're asking the question. One of the hallmarks of a good question is evidence of self research, which this question is most definitely lacking.

comment List and role of different types of testing environments
I have seen many places who separate out the smoke tests into a new environment called "Staging" - it makes an environment as close to a copy of production as realistically possible and you run your tests here. Ironically at my present firm, we use two production systems as staging on the bi-weekly-Tuesday before we send it to all the production systems on bi-weekly-Thursday.
