Nice idea, although the UI needs major work. Another database browser can be used to view the 'ph.db' file that's generated, however, which makes it easier to spot short-lived programs.

When you say "the UI needs major work". What would you like to see Ascend4nt?

I'm working on a GUI with a list of the most recent/longest running processes. You'll be able to jump to the most recent processes in the timeline view. Parts of the the time line where there are no processes will be handled better as you use the left/right arrows and the drill down. You'll be able to remove a process from the time line. You'll be able to remove long running processes from the time line.
