Greetings Ken,

first of all, thank you for the kind compliment ... it looks like you’ve already gotten all of the help that you needed ... I’m afraid that there’s not much that I can add to what’s already been posted ...

but here’s something that you might be interested in ... the next time you’re “sitting around on Saturday thinking about timers” why not try running something like this through a spare system? ...

the basic idea is that with a little bit of imagination you can set up your own little “super histogram” that will faithfully record the TON’s status “rung-by-rung” ... this is the type of kung-fu that I use whenever I need to go “beyond the books” to answer a question like yours ...

of course this screen shot only shows the basic idea ... I’ll attach the actual .RSS file to another post just in case you’re interested enough to take a look at it ...

now on to the next post for a sample of the type of data that this thing can collect for you ...
