I have a really big one for that in my browser. But I'll see if that can
be added.

Yeah, and the time-part is also included, so filtering on it will be
difficult. Have to fix that.

Click on the date-column header, it will sort on the date in reversed
order. But that should indeed be the default.

You can sort on the 'OK' column, but in that case you should filter out
the skipped-tests. (Which is currently not possible)

I'll add a 'failed' column. And a way to filter tests.

Good question. That date is indeed wrong. (should be 8/10/03 according
to the 'old' website.)
