[thelist] tips on doing QA and testing of my own work

I often find myself working on a project with no-one else assigned to do 
QA, sometimes because the company I work for is too small or too cheap 
to hire a full-time QA person, sometimes because I am freelancing. This 
leaves me with the onerous task of doing QA and testing on my own work, 
which I believe is a Very Bad Idea - I know exactly how my work should 
behave, so it's hard to make myself try to "break" it :) I've decided 
that I should learn a bit more about QA and recommended procedures and 
best practices for testing applications (web apps in particular).

Links to references that others have found helpful would be much 
appreciated - preferably online, but if a book is *really* good, I might 
even go buy it.
