comment Why is 2^16 a “special” number?
Is this an interview question from the 90s? 16 bits were special back then

comment What are your experiences with off-shore or outsourced testing?
I'd like to point out in response to the ranty part, I am aware of most aspects of testing and realise it's a specialisation just like C++ or a DBA is. However for simple functional testing I was interested if you could get the very basic adhoc testing done "on the cheap". My question wasn't intended to imply testing can be done by any un-trained person

Does that answer mean you have worked with testing companies? I've worked with testers too, but I'm interested in the differences between the cheaper and more expensive out sourcing companies, rather than hiring your own.

For the ranty part, maybe you could explain the difference. Have you had experience with testing services?
