Automating unit test generation?

Currently I’m using a homespun Unit Test system that I developed before I looked at any others so I would have a clear idea of my own pre-conceptions when reviewing The Real Thing.

Some time ago, I found this excellent article on C++ Unit Testing. Given that I created my system for a similar benchmarking purpose, I still find it clunky.

Despite Noel’s indepth review, I still find all of those he linked, and the one he himself has since created, just as clunky. I feel we both set the bar too low for an “ideal” testing suite.

Maybe this is the maintenance programmer in me, but I think Unit Testing and documentation should go hand-in-hand.

USPS Baffler.

Its old news that the USPS is in financial trouble, and that junk mail is not just a vein of income for them but pretty much their jugular…

But in a world where we pay for tap water and sewage, ¬†for the electricity we need to run the air conditioning that makes the buildings we live in habitable, even just the ability to receive phone calls…

Not being from here, this may just be another dumb question but … Why do we not pay for our mailbox? It seems, kinda, un-American…
