On the good side of life, my feature review today was, comparatively, a piece of cake. I got asked only one hard question by the Prince about XML APIs and, being in no mood to fence with him, I answered him honestly, firmly and in such a manner that he did no follow up. It seems that he is impressed with all the work we all have been doing on these test specs and reviews.
[For those who do not already know, I've occasionally likened my job to a LARP. In short: my team lead is a primogen. The Test manager is the Prince. He reports to the local archon [group manager] who reports to the local justicar who reports to Caine, Bgates.]
