Hello Dharhas,
welcome as new user of timeseries user!
Learning this scikit will soon pay off.
I have seen a huge boost in the simplicity and usability of my analysis 
through the code I wrote using the timeseries.

A special praise shall be given to the developers Pierre & Matt. By 
patiently answering my "advanced python newbie" questions they really 
help me to get the maximum of the numpy.ma and scikits.timeseries tool 
box. This did really bring my numerical python coding forward.

I tried to add some of my questions to the cookbook. Here is one that 
may help you in the current situation:

More extensive answer - 

All other Q&A in form of mails sent in by other users and myself are at 
* creating timeseries for non convertional custom frequencies - 

Search for "time series" or timeseries 

Some answers to feature requests may also help:

Are there plans to include timeseries into the scipy online doc editor?
What for do you suggest if I would like to contribute examples here and 

> * Now, construct your time series
>  >>> series = ts.time_series([_[-1] for _ in loaded, dates=dates)
after this step you'd probably want to fill the missing dates:
series_filled = series.fill_missing_dates

=> now you can save the data to csv using reportlib from the scikit and 
to other neat things.

Hope that helps.
