It's not sufficient to provide data every minute, the timestamps MUST
be EXACTLY right. For example :
1203936632 and 1203936692 are one minute apart but are NOT on the
1203936600 and 1203936660 are.
If the data you provide does not EXACTLY fill ONE 'slot' in the
database for each update supplied, then the data will be normalised
