Yeah, and I do a lot of software testing too!
And it is usually appreciated.
Not because I am that smart, but probably because I make the same (well, actually probably a lot more) mistakes, and display more unexpected behaviour than the other monkeys, and that will help the smart programmers to improve their product and make it more fool-proof.
So boasting about being some software-tester in my mind puts you somewhere between the zoo and a keyboard.
Enjoy, my fellow monkeys!
(and perhaps close this thread? It's becoming rather silly)
