Re: Software testing?

"This was the Captain Samuel Vimes 'Boots' theory of socioeconomic unfairness."

I have started to question my boot buying policy. I previously have bought good quality leather boots for a few hundred pounds from our specialist outdoor supplies shop - one pair each for summer/winter. The winter ones need to be bigger for the extra sock thickness.

Tramping the city streets the heels wear down in six months. So on the seasonal change they are sent off to the specialist repairer for re-soling with the same official Vibram soles. This costs about GBP80 a time.

I do wonder if spending less than £80 in a cheaper shop for new pair would be a better option.
