In the Last Change column, dates are shown with day-of-the-month and day-of-the-week, but no month. It might be more useful to have the month rather than (or in addition to) the day-of-the-week.

    @pwmeek , have you had the desktop version running over a month?  I don't have data as far as I can tell prior to December 1st.  I'm wondering if either the app only keeps a months worth or whether it has not been up long enough to go past a month?  I've seen other apps where if your in the same month it just assumes and doesn't display the named month, like it only shows the time only if your within 24 hours of the last collection.  Anyway, just conjecturing...  Maybe @Robin or @Ciaran can shed some light on its behavior?

    I'm assuming that since some of the day-of-the-month numbers are larger than the current day-of-the-month that they refer to some previous month. They could go back as far as late September when I put the Fingbox online. I seem to recall seeing months in a previous version. The 25th came on a Monday in November; before that it was not since March 2019 and I didn't have that Arris modem/router back then.

    I don't think the desktop app has access to the info stored from the Fingbox scans, or at least mine does not so I'm limited to it displaying what its found since I've installed it.  Which, in my case, is a months worth.

    Well, the email for downloading Desktop Beta arrived on Nov 25, which would make it just less than a calendar month ago. That does mean that dates between the 25th and 30th should be identified as being a part of the previous month. This includes the dates identified as 25th in the screen grab above. It just seems as though such dates should be identified as belonging to the previous month - November. We shall see what happens after the 25th of December when days of the month begin to repeat.

    True enough @pwmeek...  I started running it in December so I’m a bad test case.
