Your color scheme is a bit bright for me:-) Take a look at the next update
of the table (in an hour or two) - I've changed the "Warn" font color to
orange. Yellow didn't stand out enough against the white background.

Your rowspan sample certainly looks nice! I'll see if it can be duplicated

I'm now set to run every morning when the machine boots. The exact
schedule (as well as details like filenames, URL's, etc) will change, but
we should be getting test updates very regularly. I'll also add more
compilers as the kinks get worked out.
