testing times

sounds like a dumb question but, is there a good time of the day to do your testing or is it more important to test the same time of day no matter when you test.

I think in the morning would be the best, not because it dramatically affects readings, but because you don't have to stay up late correcting the problems if any occur.

It is good to be regular about it too.
