Unfortunately, I have the abilty to think like multiple idiots whilst managing to be one.The solution is to be able to think like multiple idiots while at the same time not being one.
I thought that was the purpose of beta testing. To let the idiots loose on it to break the things that you are not stupid enough to think of.
You obviously don't bank with the TSB. Alpha testing for them is letting the idiots put the software live and allow even the "expert" customers to break the system by logging in. God forbid you actually want to move money about. Beta testing would be a luxury.
Seriously, I thought beta testing was to allow certain users loose to break things that the programmer(s) hadn't thought of or didn't test.
