hope I trimmed this accurately

user testing is like phd defense.
   it's gotta pass to be considered usable.

it is hard but return on investment is many fold.
and this list could be the preliminary test, we have many folks with many 
different needs and set ups, but unfortunately the people here are among 
the more experienced and not the average or beginner user.
