2.4.1 (although I just installed 2.4.2)

pause - not

We have an MIS app that goes down for processing from 11:30PM to 6 AM. I created a test that pauses - since I can't make a single pause from 11:30 PM to 6am the following day, I created a pause form 23:30 to 00:00 and from 00:00 to 7:00 every day. This worked for a while, but now I get an error because Simon is checking during the pause period. I tried re-creating the test, same thing. Any hints would be appreciated - I'd like to email our IT folks instead of just me, but don't want to inundate them with false positives every day.

Suggestion - if the pause feature had a start time, and length of time then the computer could do the math, and we could span midnite with a single pause.

Make tests dependent on other tasks?

I have a number of tasks that are reporting "down", even though the real reason that they're down is that my network connection gets flaky sometimes.

I have a network connection test that connects to the world time site. Is there a way that I can make all other tests to remote websites/mail servers dependent on that connection test?

In other words, if the network is down, don't bother running (and/or reporting) on the other external test until the network comes back?

TIA, Steve
