Hi Nacho

You could certainly draw the graphic you want if you spend a lot of
time building it from scratch with graphics primitives -- I suggest
you start by drawing the x-axis you want with Lines.You might be able
to get close to what you want by experimenting with GraphicsGrid.  In
either case you risk creating a graphic with a misleading x - axis, so
don' t forget to put some indication of the break of scale at x ==

Or, you could use ListLogLinearPlot[t] and get close to what you are
asking for with no fuss or tricky programming, and get on with your
