When working with time, it's better to use unix timestamps for doing the calculations.

So, if you work with unix timestamps, this will be a lot easier.

When should that script run, and how do you plan to do that? Every two hours, from 11:00h in the morning (looking 2 hours back) until 17:00h? Is cron an option?
