High IQ cat
All of us had to go through this weird online game which - we believe - should demonstrate how we work, maybe gather our IQ or how we deal with pressure. Actually none knows.... We never got the results, no feedback not even to bugs that we reported during the game...but what was the most funny moment - the root cause for this cartoon - was someone not playing but simply letting the game play by itself. No human interaction, simply doing nothing, no keyboard clicking or whatsoever...just standby and this person got the same amount of points like others who were hacking into the keyboard like crazy....What does it tell us? That game was either crap and with it of course all the results that were collected from the employees or there is something we just didn't know. We will never know.
I keep on telling people that I have more talent to break things than to
actually build things, since, whatever I touch breaks apart or results
in another nice story that I can convert into a new cartoon published
on my blog at www.zelger.org. I guess this is just a myth since I also
built things successfully that are used by a large group of people
worldwide. Maybe I just look at things a little bit differently. I am
inspired a lot by the speaches, articles and books of James Whittaker,
Dorothy Graham, Johnathan Kohl and many many more; I am hungry to learn
from them on a continuous basis and apply some of these techniques to
my daily work with pleasure.
profile picture at Linked-In is a P1800 Volvo and it stands for excellent quality and design;
inspired by a Long Islander’s revered red Volvo 1800, 1966 which is
known for having racked up more than 3 million miles (GIYBF).
on this blog is guaranteed from my daily and past experience working as a tester,
test automation engineer, test manager and developer.
ThanX to Juan Ortega, Ernst Mueller who have helpede developing my style of drawing and humour and thanX to the Software Testing Club who regularly published some of my cartoons.
