It actually works pretty well, but you need to give it a *lot* of time.

The header always goes kaputt somehow. It is supposed to tell you up  
to what time the activity is compiled, but it is way ahead of the  
real time. We need to fix that.

Reload again after waiting ... and waiting ... and waiting some more.
