Can you be more specific where this was confusing at?

Yeah, I've argued with myself about that one. Not if, but WHERE ..
I need to put a status message at the top or something. Good idea.

Hmm.. its supposed to update it everywhere (via ajax) .. I'll double-check
- A "Date" should be a date and look like a date, not a timestamp. Dates

I thought work dates are supposed to be timestamp-ish, we are counting hours
/ minutes here. What did you have in mind?
Thanks Roberto, I appreciate your time and critique.
