This year our QA manager talked to every QA member: One day before Production Release, we need to send out QA Release Notes to Support Team, Project Stakeholders and some Managers. I like this procedure because testers in different project may not know what others are doing in another project. From release notes, they can learn something new.

2 months ago, I worked with our BI team developers to do OBIEE 10g performance testing. I asked them: what’s the scenario you would like to achieve? They told me the following scenarios:
· WebTestRequest (I set Baseline 5 times and I adjusted it at any time if tests failed)
Tests without indexes run faster than tests with indexes in our
Current situation: I asked one of our BI developers: is OBIEE 10g without indexes running very smoothly? He said: pretty good and it has been running smoothly since last release.

Fixed the issue in Google Chrome: Error 105 (net::ERR_NAME_NOT_RESOLVED) : Unable to resolve the server's DNS address
Some days ago, when I used Google Chrome to hit some URLs I am surfing often, I got the following error intermittently:
Error 105 (net:: ERR_NAME_NOT_RESOLVED): Unable to resolve the server's DNS address
In the beginning, I thought it could be the issue of proxy setting or a computer virus in my laptop. I talked to my wife and she said that she had seen this issue in her laptop for many days. Interesting!
I decided to use the system image I created earlier to recover my computer to see what’s going on. After system image and hitting the URLs via Chrome, the following screenshot appeared.
I tried 1, 3, 4, 5, 6 already, but I didn’t try restarting my router and modem. After restarting my router and modem, we haven’t seen this issue any more.
Next time if you have the same issue -Error 105 (net::ERR_NAME_NOT_RESOLVED) , you can use this screenshot for your reference. The Error 105 issue should be resolved.

My Real Estate broker searched my home address (new address 5 years ago) via NWMLS in Washington State. The interesting part is that he couldn’t find it and he felt so surprised.
I showed him Redfin App in my iPhone 5 and he used NWMLS # to search it. This time my home address in NWMLS appeared. But the address is still old. 5 years ago!
I don’t feel surprised because NWMLS is using Bing Map Service. But Redfin is using Google Map Service.
Many new houses were built in WA in these 5 years and I can’t believe Bing map service has not been updated. In this case, Bing Map Service is really obsolete.
