Free Test Data

If you find yourself in need of test data (and if you write software for a living, you’ve got that need pretty often), pay a visit to generatedata.com.  You have your choice of five different result formats: HTML, Excel, CSV, XML, and SQL.  If you’re using it for free, you’re limited to 200 rows of test data.  Donate $20 or more and the limit increases to 5000 rows.  If you don’t mind fiddling with PHP and MySQL, you can download the generator for free and set it up on your own server.
