0.0.13 released

This release adds an "acknowledged" functionality which can be accessed via the web ui.

All hosts which are "acknowledged" will have their idleness score set to 0 as to fall to the bottom of the client list when sorted by idleness. In addition to this, a "Acknowledged At" column has been added to the clients page in order to sort based on whether or not a host has been acknowledged. Client updates to the idlescore will be ignored for 30 days.
