Sorting a list by DateTime stamp -- please help...

Hi,
I have a list object called "myList" with the first item a string and
the second a DateTime. Something like this:

"some text 1", 19/03/2008 12:56:36
"some text 2", 19/03/2008 10:56:36
"some text 3", 19/03/2008 11:56:36
"some text 4", 19/03/2008 13:56:36
I would like to sort "myList" (into a new list) by timestamp such
that the earliest time stamp is a tthe bottom. In this case it would
be:

"some text 2", 19/03/2008 10:56:36

Problem is though I don't know how to do this exactly! Would
appreciate any comments/suggestions/code-samples that you would liek
to share.

Thanking you,
Al.

You would be very well served to read:
http://ludwig-stuyck.spaces.live.com/Blog/cns!E36D9BA98FC913B3!398.entry

the article on Generics.

It is in english.

...

Find the Sort section.

...

You can write the comparer "inline" (previous post on this thread) ... or
you can actually code up the the Comparer.
