As you are that confident, I will need to investigate further...

Ah, OKI I forgot about this.
But then I just would like to bend this date (29-Feb) out when writing the
report [timseries.Report(series)]. How would you do that?
Or would you recommend to reopen the csv-file again afterwards to delete the

Kind regards,

P.S. I think that many problems I have using timeseries arise from not knowing
how maskedarray works. If only the new maskedarry would have been that well
documented as the time series package [1] I would find my way in much easier!
Is there any documentation for maskedarray like:
