Hopefully the Apple SSL bug is out of my system, having given an AutoTest Boston lightning talk and written a Testing on the Toilet-esque article

Last night I gave the Apple SSL bug lightning talk (using the slides at the end of the deck) to the Automated Testing Boston Meetup. I’d even written a Testing on the Toilet-esque treatment that I used as my notes, and brought thirty-two physical copies for folks to take with them. (You know, it could even run as an actual Testing on the Toilet episode if someone got the notion; it’s publicly distributable under the CC BY 4.0 License…)

So why did I go through all this trouble to raise a fuss about a problem I had nothing, really, to do with anymore? I guess you could say it brought out my inner Heisenberg:

Walter White: I did it for me. I liked it. I was good at it. And, I was really… I was alive.
