Too late. I lashed it up last night, dumping the cycle count to a
linux box at 60 Hz. Now I'm rethinking the 60 Hz logging, as it's
rapidly filling up the disk! (This is a Sun Ultra 60, not a PC,
running an old and small SCSI drive.)

Any advice on an easy way to convert my timestampts from time_t to
mjd? I'm using C here.
I think I'll change the logging from 60Hz to 1Hz, at least on the sparc box.
