    It's tricky to count one tumbling so rapidly.  I've settled on 
    trying two successive sets of 50 cycles.
    
    04- 21 B 04-07-17 05:01:15   EC   57.9 0.1 100  0.579 +4.5->i
    sets of 50 cycles:  28.95, 29.00 (two other sets:  29.00, 28.94)
    
    04- 21 B 04-07-19 04:32:43   EC   58.6 0.3 100  0.586 +4.5->i
    sets of 50 cycles:  29.26, 29.34
    
    04- 21 B 04-07-20 04:16:41   EC   59.1 0.2 100  0.591 +4.5->i
    sets of 50 cycles:  29.54, 29.54 (two other sets:  29.60, 29.57)
    
    04- 21 B 04-07-21 04:04:30.5 EC   59.6 0.2 100  0.596 +4.5->i
    sets of 50 cycles:  29.72, 29.86 (two other sets:  29.81, 29.67)
    
    I also timed it on July 18, but it was with "Stopwatch B", which 
    is harded to click accurately, and it seems I was having a harder
    time counting to 50 that evening.
    
    04- 21 B 04-07-18 04:44:50   EC   58.9 0.3 100  0.589 +4.5->i
    sets of 50 cycles:  29.12, 29.83 (two other sets:  29.90, 28.74)
