    Results are "command not found"

    The disk_bench test is still running. I would imagine it is taking too long.

    Sorry. It took some time to type it all in. Wanted you to have something to look at while I finished.

    Just got an error message, but I messed up and cleared it before I could copy it. Sorry.
