[Bro] Adding a human-readable timestamp field.

Hi all!

Full disclosure: I'm a bit of a bro-ginner, only been working with bro for
about a month now.

I'm working on a bro script to add a human-readable timestamp field to my
(http) logs, but I've run into a bit of a pickle.

Though my script checks out ("bro is ok!"), installs just fine, and even
adds the appropriate field...every entry in the field column is unset! I'm
not sure where I've gone astray , and I would appreciate any pointers.

I've included the text of my script below.

Thank you!

@load base/protocols/http

module HTTP;

export {
        redef record Info += {
                ## A human-readable timestamp
                human_time: string &log &optional;

event time_translate(c: connection, rec: HTTP::Info)
    local format: string = "%F-%H-%M";
        c$http$human_time = strftime(format, rec$ts);
