Phil,
Thank you very much for your swift reply. I have not used POSIXct much, but I do remember having issues with time zones in POSIXx. Should I be aware of this, or is this not a problem. I have set the data recorders to stay one time and one time zone and never change, so that I don't have to worry about this.
kindest regards,

Stephen

Let's not spend our time and resources thinking about things that are
so little or so large that all they really do for us is puff us up and
make us feel like gods.  We are mammals, and have not exhausted the
annoying little problems of being mammals.
