Is there a way to make a plot so that it draws a square at the mass/time spot on the graphic if there is a count and leave it empty if it's empty?
Hi pofigster,
You can do this with color2D.matplot in the latest version of plotrix 
(2.4-8) that has just been uploaded (may take a day or two to appear):


will produce a plot with purple rectangles at each number and white 
(default, you can change it) rectangles where there are NAs.
