[rrd-users] Less Compression

I am creating a simple script so that I can analyze data in the RRD at any point in time and was wondering if it's possible to limit the compression of the numbers.  When I look back about 9 months I see a flat line at the highest peak (expected), but what I want to really see is the fluctuations in that precise time period that far back.
I need to be able to see a 24 hour period with fluctuation.  My data has an original timestamp of every 10 minutes and is already in the RRD (when a fetch is done, the times are 1800 seconds apart; can this be shortened?).
