Example list of required testing

Hi all,
This is by no means an exhaustive list, pretty much anything and everything online wise will need testing (within reason) but we'd like to try and capture as much as possible. Realise this may look intimidating, but a lot of it should be very easy and I suspect we'll quickly find ourselves adding quite a bit to this list. We'll get it added to a spreadsheet somewhere so those willing to take part in this trial (Thanks!) will be able to add to/update it at their own convenience.

Re: Example list of required testing

I'm trying GoToMyPC on 2 computers and neither will make the connection.
It sits at the "Authenticating" prompt, then goes to 'not responding'
Let's be careful out there !
