Seems straightforward to me, Tree.  The rules say "periods may not be
less than 30 minutes in length."

Any 30 minute or more time gap is an off-time.  Anything less is
on-time and the clock is running.

Will TRLog have a feature to include the on/off times in the summary
sheet automatically?  With the \on and \off commands, that would be an
easy thing to do.  But, then, I'm not the programmer....
