comment Calculate peak concurrent users on a website
Personally, I would parse the logs (assuming you're keeping them) and find the minute-sliding-window of time that had the highest number of hits in that minute. Then I'd add 20% or so. You can break it down into 5 sec or 10 sec window or whatever you feel is appropriate, but going off of real world data is always best. What if those 1000 vistors in that hour all were hitting the site at 9:17 AM because the new deal-of-the-day was posted at 9:16 and they just got the facebook update or something? That's the kind of scenario your load testing has to handle.

comment Which tools should I start with?
+1 - Having the knowledge of what makes good tests is something you need to run/build test with any tool. It's also something you need for when you're not using a tool. You can give a man a fish and feed him for a day because we rather instinctively know how to eat. You can't give a man a fishing pole and expect the same result. (In fact, it's very likely he'll do little more than tangle up the lines of the other fishermen...)

comment What kind of testing is ApprovalTests.com doing and are there other similar frameworks?
There's a lack of formal definitions for most of the SQA field, unfortunately.

Something inside me says {automated} and {user} are mutually exclusive. It might be automated acceptance testing, but not automated user acceptance testing. Still seems appealing though.

comment Are code reviews considered part of QA?
I like this article: it's important to make the distinction between development code and test code (even if they're both written by developers.) +1

Welcome to the site! I'm curious: you say firefox-5 pops up, but your file path appears to point to firefox-4 - typo, or something more?

comment What criteria do I apply to a highly complex development project to warrant getting “real world” data?
On a whim, I just looked at the control flags: There are 301 "logical" types on the system control tables we use, and that doesn't count our "one-length strings" for where we used to have boolean values, but needed a third option. To be fair, that means it only added about 12-16 flags per year :)
