comment How does the DataSource attribute on a test run the test multiple times?
@MichaelF: Why is that important? Well, if you have 10 tests, and each of them fails trying to perform against one specific deployed location, it's immediately obvious what is causing the failure. Why it needs to be configurable is because the run might want to only test against 1 specific deployed location. The actual scenario is a web service in an Azure Web Role, hosted in the devfabric, or on a live azure account. We want to be able to run local as much as possible to cut cost, but live/both during specific times in the dev cycle (or live only, for perf-like tests for eg).

comment How does the DataSource attribute on a test run the test multiple times?
@MichaelF: Yes, I can have 1 of the datasources (the service locations) as a file that is a deployment item listed in the user's .testsettings for the run, and that would work, but the problem is with reporting the results of the test: You still only get the number of test runs as you do values in the attributed datasource.

comment Is the “Joel Test” appropriate when looking for a QA job?
+1 because I love the list, and agree with the points. I don't think it's as effective an interview tool though. The Joel Test questions are concrete yes/no questions, with the exception of q9. In this list, 1/5/7/9/11 aren't concrete enough questions to be useful. ie. the interviewer could easily be wrong, while thinking they're right, and the work environment would be very different than reported.
