I will explore, thank you for your thoughts. I tell myself you have to better, yet the task list is long and somewhat disorganized. 
And the are only so many seconds each decade.

Which is actually rather confusing and annoying because now you have no way to know what encoding is relevant other than be carefully keeping track manually. Normally of course, within the image we have perfectly usable strings because any time a unicode character that is outside the 1-byte range is used the string becomes a WideString.
