[TYPO3-project-seminars] multiple five minute seminar times best options

Here are the steps I used. There is probably an easier way but, this
worked for me.

I created a single record the way I wanted it and copied it about 5 times.

I made changes to those records to alter the times.

I exported that table from phpMyAdmin so I would have the structure (and
a fallback to look at.)

I exported an SQL file.

I imported the "data portion" into excel and selected the fields and
dragged down to the number of places I needed. (335 in all.) This
automatically altered the times stamps in five minute increments.

I then exported to a text editor to add single quotes around the fields
that needed them.

I then imported 10 data records back into the SQL portion of the file.
Saved. Imported. Verified.

Dumped the table. Added all the records.

Verified it worked.

Thats it,

p.s. Oliver Klee did have to help me get the setup done correctly
because I screwed some things up. Thanks Oliver!
