If you have Dunstan's Time Since installed, this plugin uses it for the title="" attributes on the comments and posts. (For WordPress 1.5) Author: Brian Meidell Author URI: http://meidell.dk/ Version 1.5: Now works without LOCK TABLE and CREATE TEMPORARY TABLE priviledges. Version 1.5.1: Can't remember what I did here Version 1.5.2: Fixed count select statement to not include spammy comments Version 1.5.3: Properly excludes track- and pingbacks Version 1.5.4: Excludes posts that are not published, even if they have comments Version 1.5.5: Fade old comments, fixed bug that wreaked havoc with Time Since Version 1.5.6: Bugfix from Jonas Rabbe (http://www.jonas.rabbe.com/) pertaining to timesince Version 1.5.7: Bugfix so old colors can be darker than new colors (stupid oversight), thanks to http://spiri.dk for spotting it. Bugfix where single digit hex would cause invalid colors, thanks to http://www.wereldkeuken.be/ for the fix. Version 1.5.8: Updated to work with WordPress 2.1 alpha by M.

    Remembrances: 10 Years Ago On A Cold Dark Night [Dog Gone Blog]

    10 years ago today Phish took the stage of the Spectrum in Philly, on the second night of two nights in Trey’s “hometown” venue. After a less than stellar first night, Phish came back the second, gaining a mysterious energy from the outset.

    Remembrances: 10 Years Ago at Oswego [Phish Thoughts]

    Ten years ago today, we made our way into Oswego County Airport in Volney, NY for Phish’s only mid-tour festival of their career.  As the band was  churning out an excellent summer of shows, this weekend stop looked very promising.  Over two sweltering days in upstate New York, Phish played set after set of quality music in easily the most overlooked festival to date.  Yet as the idyllic weekend was all but over, with only one set left to go, nobody knew that the best was yet to come.
