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.

    Live Phish: Phish to Release Hampton / Winston-Salem ’97 [Hidden Track]

    When discussing the Holy Grail of Phish shows stuck inside the band’s vault, the Hampton ’97 performances and Big Cypress are usually towards the top of most fans’ lists. On December 6, Phish fans will finally get to hear the Hampton ’97 performances in all their Fred Kevorkian-mastered soundboard glory when JEMP Records puts out Hampton / Winston Salem ’97. The wonderful kicker is that the band has attached the severely underrated November 23, 1997 show to this seven-CD set that will also include never-before-heard soundchecks.
