You're welcome! I find QA'ing to be very satisfying and hopefully when I'm
finally back to school getting my degree in software development, I'll be able
to triage bugs and even more, like actually writing code for general use,
something I've wanted to do for years, especially for music oriented projects.
I don't have any suggestions right now but if I come up with any, I'll let you
know. The plan I've got is to install a new daily build once per week and test
that out since, for me personally, it takes almost a week to get through all
of the mandatory tests dues to personal obligations but I'm at least doing
something you know? lol I'm a stickler for quality over quantity. I'd rather
spend a long time making sure something's absolutely perfect or as close to it
as possible than just hammering out a million things and only ten percent be
correct. that's foolish.
But you're welcome. I enjoy this and look forward to making this release as
awesome as possible.
