Allow us to order the goals by size of buffer
Personally I'd find it very useful to be able to scan through all my goals in the order of how close I am to losing; so I can make sure to put effort into those ones which are most urgent.
It doesn't take too long to check through, so I wouldn't consider this urgent, but it would be a handy feature.
This is how the gallery is sorted now, and you can customize it slightly by changing the panic threshold for goals. (The gallery is sorted by how imminent the panic thresholds are.)
@dreeves: I'm colour-blind. Until such gene therapy becomes available to correct this in humans, I'm disagreeing on the usefulness of the thumbnail colours on genetic grounds. ;)
I had noticed that, and it's somewhat handy, but as a matter of personal preference I treat blue as an emergency (I know I can get distracted for two-four days when I have a manic period, so I plan for that)
It's easy enough to scan through, but it would be even more convenient for me if I could set them to safe-days order.*
*(Having the default stay as it is seems sensible, but having a few different options for how to order them would be a nice feature, IMO)
Thank you for an awesome site btw :-)

Just to check: did you notice that the thumbnails in your gallery page are color coded?
Green = good side of the road (at least 2 safe days)
Blue = right lane of the road (safe tomorrow)
Orange = wrong lane (could lose tomorrow)
Red = emergency day (have to get back on the road by midnight)
For me that makes it easy enough to scan through my goals (and I like how they're sorted by time of last update so goals I haven't updated for a while get pushed to the bottom). Let us know if you still disagree.
