Your links don't look like links. To find out if they are links, I have to
hover the mouse over them, IIRC. It's as if the buttons in a desktop
application didn't look like buttons. Instead you'd just see a "Yes"
somewhere on the screen and only when you hovered over the "Yes" it'd show
the typical button form.

It _does_ update, but it didn't tell me it updated.

Right. Then shouldn't the label say "Date and Time" instead of "Date"?
