Oh, if I wanted I could dig through the tables to see how often there are gaps since from my knowledge of the application I believe the tables will have timestamps. However, if the apps people are happy (which they are now) then I really don't care as I have far bigger fish to fry. The gaps don't really affect the end users, just the apps people who sometimes have to look through the data to find out what has been going on.

I agree with Gints Plivna that this is a bad requirement, and I did try to dissuade people.
