The machine requested 23 minute to work, so I gave it:

Does he mean to say (as it appears) that it cannot perform the test?
                                    I'm off to google a bit now (as I
didn't dare to do so while he was running).

Thanks, Alex. It must be getting pretty late over there by now...
