Hi Lisa and Janet! Welcome!

Lisa, I very much enjoyd reading "Testing Extreme Programming" some while ago (especially the chapter about manual testing! ). Look forward to learning more about this new book...

Gosh Ilja, I am so flattered you liked Testing XP. I was proud of that book, but the new one is way better!

Those are Ernest and Chester, extremely agile miniature donkeys! They love to work, and are always improving at things like cart-pulling, log-skidding, hauling brush and the like. They play just about every minute they aren't working!
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
