It's not totally clear what you are doing here, but I assume that each
of your samples is actually a *vector*, and that they are irregularly
sampled in time.  But maybe it's more appropriate to say that you have
uniformly sampled data separated by irregular gaps.  Right?

I have had a hard time representing the same kind of data.  My best
technique so far is to label the X axis as "sample number," and let
them appear uniformly sampled.  Then I place a vertical separator
lines whenever gaps would be.  Finally, you might want to label each
continuous segment with the time if you have room.  Not perfect, but
what can you do?

Why thanks!
