02:00 So it seems like it’s, we’re at least not inventing characters. Yeah, and there is an interesting part here as well because if you just see the short example strings, you could say, like, why do I need a program for this? I can just look at the string and solve it myself. But now we have a string that’s way longer.
02:20 So that’s why it’s worth learning Python or any other programming language to let Python do the work here. Exactly. Yeah. No, I think for this one, it’s, I guess, still humanly possible to find this marker, but it’s not a very fun task.
