This is my first post written on my Palm Tungsten E. Since I only realy need a plain text editor to accomplish this I am just using Palm Memos. Just from this short paragraph I can see that this may take quite a while :smile:. Even with Graffiti 2 I make almost as many bad characters as I make good.

Anyway the reason that I am writing on my pda is that my computer here at work is being used by Rational Robot in combination with PureCoverage to generate coverage analysis of our automated test suite. I would think that IBM would be able to make these two tools work well together. Like I have changed all of the ‘StartApplication’ to ‘StartAppUnderCoverage’ so Robot knows that the app is running under hevey instrementation it could just increase the amount of time that it waits between commands. Or at least wait while an instance of PureCoverage finishes automerging the last run. But Nooo it doesn’t so now what was an “automated” GUI test suite turns in to a hand holding event.

So as it turns out I have just spent today reading Free Culture by Laurence Lessig on my pda while keeping one eye on the automated tests. So being very tired and just sitting here playing baby sitter all day just using my pda makes for a very long day… Oh well my strike rate is getting higher will probably go back to reading and hey at least I still get paid the same whether I feel productive or not :wink:.
