Just poking at your code is, in the long run, a wasteful and sub-optimal activity. If you are going to go to the trouble to test something once, then it would be far better to figure out how to automate it. This way, you will have not just a one-shot test, but a long living regression test, and as such your investment in testing yields not just one pay off, but residual and passive pay off.
