The recent logs page on the monitor has lots of sorting options, and the initial view is ascending by time. This means that the oldest events are at the top and the newest events are at the bottom. More often, I'm interested in the latest events and have to resort the page.
Does anybody have a compelling reason to preserve the old behavior? (Note the "proposal" tag - this is mostly engendered by my own laziness, but I hold no strong opinions on this.)
