Sorting Posts

Is there any way I can sort the posts? Typically I am more interested in posts which have 0 replies, and sorting would surely help me find them more easily.

Can I try my hand at a Greasemonkey script which will do the sorting stuff and submit it to the code barn? That way, other users, who are interested in the sorting feature like me, can use it if required. (Will need Firefox of course)

I had to open my big mouth.
Since I am personally "script challenged" I had to ask google. Found something which looks interesting.
Downloaded it, built my own dummy HTML table and it works fine.
So far so good.
Saved a ranch page for testing and found to my horror:
1) The "table" component in this page doesnt have a name/id
2) I cannot figure out how to make the table class="sortable"

Its back to school time for me !
