about 10^5, but the differences in the numbers is about 10^(-2), likely to
exceed the tolerance of single precision.  Maybe try something like below:

```
blub = ["Time,Temperature\n" ...
"27.02.2018 17:10:56,19.99\n" ...
"27.02.2018 17:11:57,19.91\n" ...
"27.02.2018 17:12:58,20.01\n" ...
"27.02.2018 17:13:59,19.98\n" ...
"27.02.2018 17:15:00,20.15\n" ...
"27.02.2018 17:16:01,20.20\n" ...
"27.02.2018 17:17:02,20.14"];

a = textscan (blub, '%s %f', 'Delimiter', ',', 'HeaderLines', 1);
a{1} = datenum (a{1}, 'dd.mm.yyyy HH:MM:SS');
x = a{1};
y = a{2};
figure ();
plot (x, y)
figure ();
plot (x - x(1), y)
```
