    do yo know if there is any way to get feedback, when the evaluation finished?
    I want to write something like that, since the evaluation sometimes takes some tries until it does its job:

    Start-Wait 30
    Computer in Collection

    The Start-Wait is not optimal. Sometimes it takes longer, sometimes its faster..

    Thank you :)
