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.

    Berkeley: Togas, Cookie Monster, Gumby & More [Live Music Blog]

    With religious-like fervor surrounding the band’s return to the road stronger than ever, it’s no surprise such a vibrant community continues to spring forth with new creativity, technological innovation, and a willingness to invest in something they believe in. And perhaps more importantly — a willingness to show up to a concert and make a complete fool of themselves.

    Berkeley: Phish Conquer Berkeley [Antiquiet]

    The highlight of the four song run was Cities – a Talking Heads song that has found its way into the Phish repertoire.  With Anastasio singing the line “home of Elvis and the ancient Greeks” you knew you were witnessing something truly special, as the band could have easily booked two sold out shows at the spacious 22,000 seat Shoreline Amphitheatre across the bay. Instead, they booked the intimate Greek and ended up with the hottest ticket in town for the 2010 Bay Area concert calendar.

    Each night, the band seemed to evolve from the night before; and in all three shows Phish displayed a different side of their diverse musical abilities.  Over the course of the three nights in Berekeley, the band continued to develop a new improvisational style that has woven itself through the peak jams of 2010.
