I wouldn't have thought it is too difficult for the tool to obtain today's date from the system, instead of requiring it to be updated manually.
But you know what really makes me grumpy? The inability to change the star ratings below, once having clicked somewhere in the line! That's simply absurd. The stars below in no way represent the ratings I wanted to give this rather useful tool. The above shortcoming is the only thing keeping it from a five-star rating from me.
