Basically I have a list of hundred of dates (one per point) and I want 
few of them, to fill the X axis. This should be simple!
The code I have (too complex for the task, btw), from the internet, does 
exactly that, including presenting them 45? oriented, but only presents 
5 or 6 dates. I want more, perhaps 12.
