Thanks for the encouraging feedback and sorry for the delayed response  
- far too much work to do these days!

I see what you're saying regarding the confusing wordage in that  
particular section of my report. Any future written work will  
certainly take care of the OSC time-stamp vs. TOSC time-tags for  
synchronization difference explicitly.

Thanks again Kas!
