Appreciate your time, Mr Brox.

I'll test the use of current_timestamp, rather than now(). I am not
sure if Pg can do a match between a fixed timestamp and a datetime?

time > current_timestamp - interval '24 hours',
when time is yyyy-mm-dd hh-mm-ss+02, like 2005-06-22 16:00:00+02.

If Pg cant do it, and current_time is faster, i could possibly convert
the time field in my database to timestamp, and insert all rows as
timestamp rather than a timedate. But that is some script to work over
19 mill rows, so I need to know if that will give me any more speed..
