You are appending to the test file. How many times have
you appended to it? Once? Twice? A dozen times? Just
what is in the file test.py after all this time?

This result came to a bit of a suprise..  when i construct large hashes
.. my system gets stalled....

So i was interested how, for this i came up with this exercise .

Anyway thanks
