My fault... I really meant:
Spectrum.Char.TimeAxis.Accuracy.SysError = 10 years
What is important is that the Bounds have nothing
to do with the precision by which we know the location;
the SysError and the StatError should be used to describe that.
The typical Bounds values will be the actual min and max
of the *known* data values.
A nice weekend,
