FULL DISCUSSION
 

My 2nd job, was working on a mid-range computer at the OS layer. They wanted me to add the ability to save files that had 3 character extensions like .txt, etc. I got it to work, tested it and sent it to distribution folks. 1 week later I found out that I regressed ability to save files without extensions. They had to pull back distribution to 115 countries. Ouch...

 

It really was the wild west before test automation...

 

I later became a test advocate, read testing books like crazy. At one point managed a team of 35 QA. People in 3 countries.

Best QA book was Software Testing Techniques. Boris Bezier It's still a good read but a bit dated.
