Now has new format:

    # 1126813065  Thu Sep 15 12:37:45 PDT 2005

The first number is the long integer seconds, so sorting is easy.

Run a script against the log files first to combine the timestamp
and the data packets into one line, then sort on that first number.
Of course they're already in sorted order, but if you're combining
log files this might be of use.
