My understanding is that the main point of your post was how to get times
on the X axis. hopefully at this point its clear how to do that and you can
come up with some algorithm to put whatever points you want on.
Here is a slight generalization although you will likely have to generalize
it further.

Not for me. It gives ticks all along the x axis for me. I have placed
the entire self contained code above just to be sure.
