What about sub selects. As I see it you only care about the highest
and lowest order of results in each list.
Sorry, in am on a mobile so I can nit make a test case, and this will
be pseudo SQL.
Select * from table where start <= (select foo) and ( select foo) ...
Also look at the "between" and "in" keywords.
Perhaps your list of timestamps is not in a database, can you put then
Either way unless I am reading you wrong you only need the greatest
and lowest time in your comparison, not a huge list.
