MS Excel, and spreadsheets in general, are the testers friend. I have written up some notes about how to use Excel and VBA to generate test data.
Words, and how they affect cognition, perception, state and action, interest me. I wanted to experiment with a less linear and more diagrammatic communication format, so...
