dear Terki,

Ok, you have 24 hourly MDB files, CODE001[a-x].m*, all from 2013 except file CODE001n.m00 which is from 2014.
Sure, if you try to do anything with teqc using all these files in one command treating them all as sequential
input, then yes, what you describe is exactly what is going to happen.  When teqc encounters the epochs in
file CODE001[o-x].m*, which all occur _before_ the last epoch in CODE001n.m00, teqc ignores them (although you
should have gotten some notice or warning).

Solution: Do two runs and change your shell's file globbing: one for files CODE001[a-mo-x].m* in 2013 and the
other run just for file CODE001n.m00 in 2014.
