Internal Server Error
what the voices in my head tell me to write

The other day Katie sent an email around all the engineers at work discussing evil unit tests. I sent back a stupid reply about "I dont need to do such stuff I have 10000 users tesing my work for me." Or some such crap.
Katie being the clever person she is remembered something about a perl module that can automate some aspects of doing web based tests. Her friend Dave uses it a lot in his job.
Dave kindly provided some simple examples of how to use it to automate simple tasks. It looks really good. There is even a sub-module to slow things down to prevent you hammering your server.

If only I had known about it in a previous job where I ended up hand testing about 10000 static web pages manually.
I must admit Perl isnt my strong point though. I must re-read a couple of your books on my bookshelf.
