I saw this on el-reg this morning and couldn't help forwarding it to our software developers, I don't officially do software anymore (although in exchange for various bonusses they have had me write quite a few bits of software for various police forces since I started since the in house devs are useless) so I'm not overly bothered about software TBH. So long as I keep doing my official job, which is testing, I'm happy.
Thing is I didn't send it as a bit of a laugh, deep down I kind of hope they take the idea on board. I can't helping thinking it would be a win-win-win situation for us all. They'd get money for less work, the software we get in return might actually work properly and I'd be able to spend more time just signing off the release notes because it works first time instead of feeding back a list of bugs which they never fix and wasting my time testing it again.
