hmm interesting

3 of the logs have the month as 1 instead of 01 and it does not get seen 
as in range.

What are you doing here time = "#{$2}/#{$1}#{$3}"   ?

In order to catch these logs I'm thinking I should drop the date 
completely from this part of the scan because the logs are generated 
daily do I can just search the date.log for the proper time.
