Enjoyed reading your blog and seeing:
API checks for fun and profit. This is an area of work I really enjoy and use soapui as my testing tool.
And
Cucumber automated testing. We do this on circ. Would like to know what you think of this framework.

"How I am Overcoming "Expectational Debt" is an interesting piece from Michael Larsen looking into how commitments are made, when they should made, and how they should be followed up.  Good life skill outside of just testing.
