Hi Thomas, I left a comment on your blog a few weeks back, and have just popped back there now to leave an update. Wanted to let you know that there is now a software testing group on Biggerplate, with example maps and templates from other testers. You can see the group here: http://observanttester.blogspot.co.uk/2012/01/why-using-custom-pictures-in-xmind-is.html
Hope it's of interest!
Best wishes
Liam

I'm looking for a Security/Penetration testing company, preferrably in Europe. Can anyone recommend someone? I don't need to comply to any regulations but want to make sure our website is secure.

I've been thinking about Test Management and Management in general a lot in the last couple of months having observed both the good, the bad and the downright ugly approaches. Stuart Reid in the Forew...

This was a difficult post to write but I needed to get it out first before anything else. The next posts will be easier and more in my own style.
I usually keep private and work net presence clearly separated. This one is different but I decided to post it as I couldnt' get the testing mindset out of my private life and it may help. It also...

OK, showing all suggestions for people to add displays an interesting bug - there's so many people suggested that the screen scrolls down, continuously. When scrolling back up the automatic down scrolling starts again. Mmhhh.
