Thanks Glenn! I'm finding the Pause functionality very helpful, i.e., if I
have a half hour in between other things, I do the next part of the test
run, press Pause, and then send the latest results in, and then come back
later again and continue where I left off. That means I don't need to do
everything at once, but in stages. Very helpful.
