A whole old bunch of stuff, this is all I found really wrong:

>OK, we need to run the test for a longer period, ...
we can never prove it true so we try to look at ways of proving it false.
The important words there are "proving it false".

That tester probable has more hours of compare reading on it now than most 
It don't really need no more longer runs to show what it is going to 
typically do.
Stop this insane proving it either true or false, So far it is 25 timers 
been true and once has been false.
But that false time was when John had it connect backward or something like 
that, so we can list that one under operator error.
so 25 timers good, 0 bad, one operator error
As Bruce has pointed out I'm not real good at statistics, but that sounds 
like it is about a 25 to 0 chance that the next 25 test will also be OK

Sounds like a saver bet to me to guess 'True' , If one is into betting the 
odds and not King worship.
God save the king
