  Hmm... to be honest, I don't thunk I've used radwho in a long time.  It still builds and works, but it hasn't had any changes for many years.

  Use a real database, even sqlite is fine.  The dates are then put in as full year / month / day / time.

  If you want to get fancy, you could send over a patch which (a) adds a new command-line option to radwho, and (b) when that's set, print out the date in a better format.  I'd be happy to add that to the code.
