I have a question about automated testing in D7.  First of all, does such a thing exist?

2-3 weeks ago, we updated our dev server, went through our checklist of things to make sure nothing popped up in Watchdog and what not.

After deploying the updates from our dev server to the production server, everything seemed fine.  Until today ( Monday, I might add ).

Apparently something changed in Feeds which screwed up our Rules any where we had Private Messages in the actions.  This caused all of those rules to fail.  No one noticed until today.  Fortunately, it is just a mess, but there is no data loss.  

So, as the complexity of this particular site increases and there are more potential points of failure, and the conditions in which a failure would reveal itself are harder for us to reproduce manually, I am really wanting / needing a highly configurable testing solution.  Something that can perform all of the primary functions on the site, from the context of differing user roles, etc.

I am not really looking for a tool for checking if there are coding errors so much as things that change the way the site works in a way that breaks our environment.

The general testing strategy we usually employ on sites is a combination of:

- unit tests
- simpletest
- behat

Usually behat is used to test your most important workflows and it is very good in that, but it can also be slow as you directly interact with the users UI.

Casper JS is an alternative to that.

simpletest is most useful for custom modules and ensuring those work properly - testing the site in the same way as core and contributed modules test themselves.

Unit tests are great for testing code correctness - less important for you.

Google needs to get back to supporting Linux users with top notch software. Lack of an official Ubuntu client is forcing me to spend even more money to maintain Dropbox for Business and Google Apps for Business.
Google introduced Google Drive on April 24, 2012 and promised Linux support “coming soon.” That was nearly two and a half years ago. There’s now a somewhat “official” Google Drive client for Linux, but it’s probably not what you want.

How does this look
 
The Nimble CRM #module  was officially released last week. This module provides integration with Nimble #CRM . Each time someone submits a contact form response on your #Drupal  website, a new Contact will be added to your Nimble CRM account. It has integration with the core Contact module and Webform module.

So, what's up with Verizon denying us the ability to use data while on calls? Yes, I'm talking about the distinct lack of a feature I have used extensively on both of my prior 4g phones. The feature I wasn't aware was missing from the phone. The feature was promised and never delivered.

I see the Droid line have it, I read that Nexus 6 users can now with 5.1 use Advanced Calling. Why not Moto X?

Third question, any Nexus 6 Verizon users on Verizon, does Advanced Calling work?

I am so sick of this, I am ready to sell this phone and get the Nexus and I just got this a month ago.

I agree I use my phone for work and the lack of volte sucks. But I can't deny big red. I downloaded 5.1 in 6 minutes in Worcester MA on xlte. That was a 500 mb update. I haven't seen a phone on 4g as fast as this one yet. Tough to trade this in for a phone with volte, I also work in a recycling facility and when the plant is running most people can't hear the background noise. So I can't imagine how good it will be on volte, sigh I'll just keep waiting because I like this phone to much.
