Request fails when local storage limit reached #7

When the browser local storage size limit is reached, the result from the server cannot be stored and the operation fails.

This means the result page cannot be loaded and the loading spinny carries on forever.

The default storage space is quite large relative to the result size - I have just hit this issue for the second time, after 8 months of spamming examples every hour of every day - so it's probably a while before someone hits this while properly using the product.

However, we also need to balance the need to make results available to preserve history/navigation against being rude by taking up to much browser storage.

Fix: keep a record of all results, keep the last 15 and get rid of any older results
